MANILA, Philippines — “I still support him (Duterte) but my greater support, greater loyalty; greater effort is with the bigger Philippine team with 101.5 million people.”

Former President Fidel Valdez Ramos asserts that his support remains with President Rodrigo Duterte and he does not regret endorsing him during the campaign period.

However, he is dismayed over the sudden and secretive burial of the former President Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani last week.

He argues that the move could decrease the support of the public to the current administration.

“Come on; let’s deal with facts and emotions. I felt very bad especially for the veterans as well as a lot of members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, veterans and retirees and active members as well as members of the Philippine National Police that I commanded few years ago.”

According to Ramos, based on the memorandum released on August 20, 1992, there was no agreement to bury the remains of Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Ramos also urged the Marcos family to apologize to the people and distribute their alleged hidden wealth.

The former president did not comment on what to do with the remains of Marcos that is already buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

He said that it should be based on the Supreme Court’s decision on the motion which is set to be decided upon on November 26.
