The freedom of speech of every Filipino continues to prevail in the country, Malacañang said Thursday.
“The freedom of speech is prevailing in this country. It is guaranteed by the Constitution,” Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles said in a Palace briefing.
She made the statement after a Palace reporter asked her “how much of a concern is disinformation to the Marcos administration.”
The reporter noted that some critics purportedly believed that the supposed disinformation helped “boost” the presidential campaign of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., who enjoyed a landslide win in the May 9, 2022 elections.
Responding to the query, Cruz-Angeles said: “People can say that. People can talk about it. They can discuss these matters. But no such wrongdoing has been committed.”
