From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On the SC martial law ruling
The High Court has spoken: Proclamation 216 is constitutional.

The President is sworn to protect the Filipino people. He will not waver in this commitment to end rebellion, the evil of terrorism and to liberate Marawi. With the Supreme Court decision, the whole government now stands together as one against a common enemy.

We ask the public to give their full support and cooperation to local authorities. After all, securing communities is a responsibility that must be shared by everyone.
