Palarde’s group gathers at EDSA People Power Monument for dialogue on national issues

A group led by Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) retired Gen. Antonio Palarde Jr. gathered at the People Power Monument on Epifanio Delos Santos Avenue (EDSA) on Tuesday, March 15, for a dialogue on various issues of the national government, including the alleged corruption in the Commission on Elections.

The Quezon City Police District said that there were around 100 individuals at the monument, composed of sector leaders from different provinces. Media personality Vivian Velez was also present at the event.

Palarde has denied that he declared a “revolutionary government” at the gathering but does not discount its possibility if it is the only way to end corruption, according to a Facebook post of the CNN Philippines.

The QCPD said that as of 12:41 p.m., the gathering at the monument was still ongoing and further details are yet to be announced.
