More Philippines martial law is Duterte's win, for now

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Significance

His remarks follow congress's controversial renewing of martial law throughout the island until December 31.

Impacts

  • Legal challenges to the martial law extension are likely, but probably will fail.
  • Greater public scrutiny of martial law could make the military cautious, undermining martial law's effectiveness.
  • Counter-radicalisation and economic development will also be needed to combat terrorism and extremism.
