Along with the prominent members of the Liberal Political Party, Filipino-American Philanthropist Loida Nicholas-Lewis is now calling for the Philippine President to resign from office immediately. She cites that the present administration has been generating worldwide concern to the aftermath of extrajudicial executions. Lewis is extremely concerned that there will be more lives at stake while the current Duterte administration continues to surface their campaign to drive away users and distributors of illegal narcotics all over the country.
However, Lewis denies that she was responsible for plotting against Rodrigo Duterte from his office, which is contrasting rumors that she is one of the persons of interests who is now planning for establishing a new group to ouster the president. There is nothing in her vocabulary that she wanted the president to be ousted forcefully from his presidential table. This is because Loida Nicholas-Lewis believes in the process of Democracy. The Philippines is under a republic political system where it allows its constitutional procedures to be followed using a transparent and fair approach.
President Rodrigo Duterte promised during the Philippine National election campaign that he vows to clean the country's crime rates. The main focus is to drive away who are using, distributing, and trafficking illegal narcotics anywhere in the country. The president estimated that there are at least three million individuals who are involved in the use and regulation of illegal narcotics. Now that he is elected as the President of the Republic of the Philippines, his advocacy regarding the war on illegal narcotics are now rampant across the country.
Aside from Loida Nicholas-Lewis, international human rights groups are also calling for the stop with the brutal advocacy of the Philippine government with regards to their public safety management. This is a concern with the international laws, which might risk the safety of the Philippine residents. However, President Duterte assures that after this campaign, the Philippines will transform as one of the most peaceful countries in the world wherein any individual will not have to worry about walking along the street in the middle of the night. This is because the majority of negative elements of the law are bombarded by the possession and under the influence of prohibited narcotics.
