Interview with SMNI Nightline News – March 23, 2023

Prof. Malindog-Uy kay PBBM: Kung babawiin niya ‘yung EDCA or sasabihin niya ayoko na ng EDCA, dapat kung makita niyang hindi good for the country ay dapat malusutan niya ‘yan (If PBBM will try to reconsider EDCA because it’s not good for PH, it will be not easy, but given that he entered into this deal with US, then he should know how to get out of it)

I really don’t see any benefit from EDCA, it’s a symbol and a manifestation that the Philippines is not truly a sovereign state and independent state—Prof. Malindog-Uy

PBBM, bakit pinasok ang EDCA deal? (Why PBBM entered the EDCA deal?)

I am not sure if PBBM will reconsider the decision on EDCA but I want to be surprised —Prof. Malindog-Uy

Ano ba ang makukuha ng Pilipinas sa EDCA? (What will we get out of EDCA?)
