The former President of the Philippines Gloria Macapagal Arroyo who is now the representative of Pampanga gave her support to President Duterte as he declared the 'State of Lawlessness' after the terrifying blast happened in Davao City.
Arroyo made a point that Duterte is in the best position of declare the state of lawlessness to get rid of the threat to the peach and order of the country.
Arroyo strongly believes that the law enforcers of the country will not abuse their authority with regards to the concerns about the violation of the human rights.
''I did not experience them being abusive, and I don’t think they will be abusive now,'' she said in a press conference.
''President Duterte is a much stronger leader than I am so if could handle them he can handle them even better," Arroyo added.
The declaration of the 'State of Lawlessness' means that the police can call on the military to help eradicate the security threats.
Back in 2013, Arroyo also declared a 'state of lawlessness' in Davao City after the successive attacks at the international airport and Sasa wharf which took the lives of over 2 dozen people.
