“I do believe that that is not the solution” Senatorial candidate Leila de Lima said when asked about the return of death penalty in the country.
“I do believe that that is not the solution. The solution is to fix the justice system. The new executive should start with the strict and faithful enforcement of laws,” the senatorial candidate said.
Instead of jumping into a death penalty, De lima said the congress should help fixing the justice system in the country.
When asked by the reporters if where she will stand under the presidency of the Presumptive President Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte she said : “Let us observe the new leadership first. Let’s see and find out what his domestic and foreign policies. Let’s see. I just hope that he would always at all times uphold the Constitution, the rule of law and human rights.”
