SVT: Valet i Filippinerna präglas av “förväntan och glädje”

SVT: “Favorit i valet är Ferdinand Marcos Jr. – son till den tidigare diktatorn, som har undvikit att delta i intervjuer eller valdebatter.”. Vad säger kommunisterna?

Det rapporteras friskt i kapitalistmedierna. Filippinernas kommunistiska parti har också publicerat en rapport (vår fetstil):

How would you characterize the 2022 elections?

The May 9 elections have developed into a crucial battleground in the fight against the perpetuation of the Duterte tyranny and attempts to restore the Marcos family to power. The most significant development has been the groundswell of the anti-Marcos and anti-Duterte movement around the campaign of Vice President Leni Robredo. The almost nightly mass demonstrations participated in by hundreds of thousands of people in different parts of the country have served to give form to the Filipino people’s anger against the Duterte tyrannical regime.

From the more strategic and revolutionary viewpoint, the upcoming presidential election is mainly a contest between rival factions of the ruling classes to select the next chief of the neo-colonial state and administrator of the rotten semicolonial and semifeudal system. As in the past, the elections are a pseudo-democratic political exercise where only members or representatives of the moneyed ruling classes can have a meaningful chance of being elected.

What will be the tasks of the Party and revolutionary movement under the new government?

Whatever the outcome of the May 9 presidential elections, the Party must continue to advance the people’s revolutionary struggle. It must persevere in strengthening itself and all revolutionary forces. It must continue to lead and strengthen the New People’s Army and wage, raise and expand the revolutionary armed struggle. It must further increase and strengthen the organs of political power in the countryside, strengthen and multiply Party branches in both the cities and countryside, strengthen the underground mass organizations and the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP), strengthening its leadership of the people’s democratic struggles in the cities, and other important tasks as enumerated by the Central Committee in its message last March 29 and December 26.

Guided by these mid- and long-term tasks for advancing the people’s democratic revolution, the Party will face the specific situation after May 9 as events unfold.”
