The Philippine Opposition will not succeed against Duterte unless they change strategy

The big question that should be asked of the Philippines’ Opposition is this: What alternative path do you propose?

Suffice to say, news that that the parents of the late Kian delos Santos, Saldy and Lorenza, met with President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacanang knocked the wind right out of the sails of an Opposition campaign to demonise the Philippine leader.
