Mel Sta. Maria says Duterte’s plea for emergency power ‘by-product-mentality of dictatorship’
Abogado Mel Sta. Maria blasted President Rodrigo Duterte for his traditional thinking.
The abogado said that the request for emergency powers are telling of an age old mentality of most public officials.
EMERGENCY POWERS? This "emergency power" as the panacea for all the nation's problems is a by-product-mentality of the dictatorship. It is just so frustrating that, after so many years, many of our pubic officials there in Malacanang HAVE NEVER LEFT THAT MINDSET.

Sta. Maria said that many still believe that it’s the solution to all of the nation’s problems. The abogado believes that they should start doing away from that mindset at this point.
Get over it na!
