support for the President is unwavering even amidst his threat of imposing martial law,
according to Benjie Liwanag of Super Radyo dzBB.claimed According to the report, Panelo claimed that even those he did not vote for Duterte during the last Presidential election is now behind his back.

alleged people involved in illegal drugs.

ako, o di sige... Or would you rather that I declare martial law?"

saying it was a rhetorical question and not a threat.
