Statement by Senate President Pro-Tempore Franklin M. Drilon on the exchange of opinion between the Executive and the Judiciary

"I am appealing for a more rational debate on the issue regarding the government's aggressive campaign against drugs. Let us debate with facts and reasons. There is no argument that cannot be solved by rational debate. Let reason and civility govern the exchanges of opinions on issues."

"Dahan-dahan po tayo sa pagsasalita. Huwag natin idaan sa init ng ulo."

"We must all realize that it is the future of our whole country, not just a city, that is at stake. Any action and statement that will result in a constitutional crisis will not bring us anywhere - worse, it will only weaken our democratic institutions."

"All three branches of government must work together, if our war against crime, drugs and corruption is to be truly successful."
