NCRPO to meet with rallyists before SONA

With only two weeks left before President Duterte’s fourth state of the nation address, the National Capital Region Police Office has slated talks with groups of rallyists to ensure peace and order during the July 22 event.

NCRPO chief Maj. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said dialogues with leaders of both pro and anti-Duterte groups this coming week were part of the security preparations for the SONA.

"We wanted to hear what the two forces want us to do to secure them. We don't want them to be in the same place as shouting might ignite trouble," Eleazar said on Saturday.

Eleazar said demonstrators would not be prevented from holding rallies “for as long as these are held peacefully.”

He warned, however, that the police would not hesitate to use force if protesters became unruly.

“As usual, our police will exercise maximum tolerance but at the same time we asked the militant groups to do their share and police their ranks to ensure a peaceful and orderly SONA,” he said.
