Grex Lagman takes another dig at Duterte admin

0

Former Albay first district Rep. Grex Lagman wondered out loud if the state of politics under President Rodrigo Duterte could go even lower, especially with how he deals with co-equal branches of government.

In particular, he expressed his disgust over the “express threat of declaring martial law” that Duterte told Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno of the Supreme Court–supposedly one of the executives’ co-equal branches.

“Is there a state of political affairs being pursued by the chief executive that can be defined as “lower than gutter?” Pray, i hope not!” Grex said on Facebook.

Grex, a lawyer, also took a shot at his fellow lawyers for being rendered blind by “partisan politics”.
