DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Communist Party of the Philippines founding chair Jose Maria Sison throws shade at President Duterte for failing to negotiate with a “real commander” in the so-called localized talks.

Sison, the chief political consultant of the National Democratic Front, claimed in a statement Tuesday that the entire operational and command structure of the New People’s Army (NPA) was rejecting Duterte’s offer for localized negotiations.

“It will be fun to ridicule Duterte and Galvez for failing to negotiate with a single real NPA commander or even to make any credible fabrication in this regard,” Sison said.

The senior communist leader accused Duterte and Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Carlito Galvez of using the localized peace talks as a counterinsurgency campaign. He called it an “inutile” tactic of deception to divide and defeat the armed revolutionary movement.

“Duterte and Galvez are interested merely in a psywar campaign to stage fake localized peace talks and fake surrenders between military officers and their military assets (disguised as surrendering rebels) in a stupid and futile attempt to deceive and divide the broad masses of the people,” Sison added.

Duterte shifted to a localized framework after he decided to withdraw from the peace negotiations in 2017.

The President also dissolved last month the government negotiating panel led by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III.

Duterte and the security sector believe that it is more strategic to engage local NPA commands instead of The Netherlands-based NDF peace panel.

The new approach also seeks to scrap previous agreements signed between the two panels since the administrations of Corazon Aquino and Fidel Ramos such as the Joint Hague Declaration and Joint Agreement on Security and Immunity Guarantee. /cbb

Decision on the petition for proscription against the CPP-NPA as terrorist organizations filed by the DOJ on 21 Feb 2018 with the RTC branch...

The Program of the CPP which is also synonymous with “Plan of Action”, can be construed as the respondent organizations’ “purpose for being,” or the very reasons for its establishment. A perusal of the foregoing Program, consisting of lofty ideals readily shows that the CPP-NPA is organized or exists, not for the purpose engaging in terrorism.
