President Rodrigo Duterte is probably going to skirt the 34th commemoration of the Edsa People Power Revolution and simply telecommute while Filipinos accumulate to commend the bloodless unrest that toppled previous President Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.

"Consistently is a working day for the President. Regardless of whether it's his rest day, he despite everything works. So he may very well remain at home," said presidential representative Salvador Panelo.

In a meeting with Palace columnists on Friday, Panelo said he has not seen any calendar for Mr. Duterte to go to any Edsa-related occasion on Feb. 25.

Since expecting office in 2016, the President has never gone to all administration drove festivities of the notable Edsa People Power commemoration.

Mr. Duterte is a known companion and supporter of the Marcoses, and has made no mystery his appreciation for the removed strongman.

The President's dad, Vicente, was an individual from Marcos' Cabinet, however his mom, Soledad, was a supporter of the resistance.

Chief 'yellow' dissident

Mr. Duterte said his mom was a chief "yellow" dissident—one of the first supporters of previous President Cory Aquino in Davao City.

The President embraced the 2019 senatorial offer of then Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos—a complementary activity to Marcos' supporting Mr. Duterte's presidential offer in 2016.

In 2016, the Chief Executive permitted the internment of the late strongman at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani, a move that started open shock.

Upheld Noynoy

Curiously, in 2010, Mr. Duterte, who was then Davao City chairman, advocated then Sen. Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's presidential offer.

The Palace expelled reports of a dissent to be mounted on Feb. 22 to require the President's renunciation.

Feb. 22 was the beginning of the Edsa People Power Revolution in 1986, which was featured by a progression of showings, the greatest of which were mounted on an extended length on Epifanio de los Santos Avenue or Edsa. It finished on Feb. 25.
