Former President Fidel V. Ramos brags that he is a 2nd degree cousin of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Despite his mother being Marcos’s favorite aunt, he goes against him because, in the 1935 constitution, it says that you follow the orders of the commander-in-chief. As the chief of Philippine Constabulary at that time, he claims that he can no longer follow his superior. He implies that Digong is doing it again.

FVR Protest against Quiet EDSA
Former President Fidel V. Ramos or FVR again throws his disgusts on pronouncements made by the Palace that people have to “move on” as it decides to downgrade the commemoration of the 31st anniversary of the People Power Revolution on Feb. 25.
Lack of Coordination with Cabinet Members
Ramos observes that there is continues lack of coordination among the President and his cabinet members. Teamwork between the leader of the country and rest of the Filipino people is not happening. Therefore, it’s a one-way governance, according to Ramos.

Alleged Fiascos of the Government
Ramos attacks the replacement of the PNP by PDEA in the anti-drug war. He is also not happy with the breakdown of GPH-NDFP Peace Talks and criticizes the transfer of misbehaved cops to Mindanao. Mismanagement of funds for calamity assistance in Surigao Norte and the mass awarding of Medals of Valor to 42 PNP-SAF victims in Mamasapano also lack proper procedures, he said.
The president is open with his closeness to the Marcoses, particularly Bongbong Marcos and Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos. He credits Imee for her support in his presidential bid. Last year, he made good on his campaign promise to allow the late Marcos’ burial at the Heroes’ Cemetery. This triggers the enormous disapproval from the Liberal Party loyalists.
