Liberal Party of the Philippines standard-bearer and presidential bet Mar Roxas demolished the recognition of Davao City among the most secure city on the planet.
During a presidential forum, former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas claimed that Davao City being known as as a peaceful city is a real myth.
Mar Roxas specified an information that suggests Davao City had the “4th Highest Crime (incidents) in the Philippines“. He was cited as stating “So it’s a myth, imagination that it’s peaceful in Davao City. I’m not putting them down here, I’m just citing data,” Roxas added.
The assertion of Mar Roxas was made on Friday, December 11, 2015 at the Ateneo de Manila University during the presidential forum sponsored by the Galing Pook.
When Roxas was inquired on the peace and order, which is among the key issues of the voters in the 2016 presidential elections, Roxas responded “I do not believe that might is right, in summary justice.”
Mar Roxas furthermore recall the growth of administration particularly under his supervision as the Interior Secretary. He pointed out that the DILG’s Oplan Lambat Sibat has reduced the crime rate within Metro Manila.
The assertion from Mar Roxas will certainly add more intensity to the currently souring rapport between Roxas and Duterte following the former Interior Secretary was pinpointed by Davao City Mayor to be in back of the spreading involving an issue about his health.
