ILPS Philippines calls on the international community to oppose Marcos-Duterte comeback

Ferdinand Marcos Jr. the son of the late dictator Marcos claimed victory in an anomalous May 8 Philippine elections. With the support of the tyrant Rodrigo Duterte, through his daughter and vice-presidential running mate Sara, Marcos Jr. won the presidency over his closest rival Leni Robredo running as an independent but backed by a growing people’s movement including the progressive Makabayan (Patriotic) bloc.

The Marcos victory was fraudulent from the start and was based on massive disinformation spread through social media. Red-tagging, harassment and attacks by state forces against progressive groups, activists and the broad political opposition also continued before, during and after elections.
