Statement of Senator Nancy Binay on the President's Declaration of State of Lawless Violence

We cannot afford to be complacent. The President, as commander-in-chief, is doing everything that is within the law to fight terrorism so that our people will be out of harm's way.

A state of lawless violence is recognized under Section 18, Article VII of the Constitution that allows the President to respond to such lawlessness with the appropriate measures and proportional response to ensure that our communities are safe and secure.

Ang bawat isa sa atin ay dapat maging mapagmatyag at huwag maging kampante. Huwag nating hahayaang magtagumpay ang mga elemento ng karahasan.

Let us all hope that the President's declaration of lawless violence and the calling out of the armed forces will have affirmative results. Hangad ko rin na magkaroon ng agarang resulta upang di na lumawig pa ang sitwasyon ng lawless violence.

Public safety is paramount and our collective vigilance is our shield and security. We need to be united more than ever.
