Duterte: I really intend to militarize gov't

Claims that the government is being militarized under his watch are correct, President Duterte said, stressing this was his way of preventing corruption from rendering him inutile.

“I will not sit as President and let you render me inutile as you continue with your corruption there in Customs right in front of me. P***** i** niyo (Sons of b******). Now you have a problem. They say it’s militarization of the government. Correct,” Duterte said during the distribution of land certificates in Cagayan de Oro last Wednesday.

Martial law, sometimes called "militarization" in the Philippines, is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions of government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory.
On 23 May 2017, President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines declared martial law in Mindanao, through Proclamation No. 216, due to the attack of Maute Group in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur. It was announced in a briefing in Moscow by Secretary Ernesto Abella, and will be in effect until December.
