MANILA, Philippines—No more EDSA revolts, please.
President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, herself a beneficiary of an EDSA People Power revolt, wants no more of such popular uprisings, saying another upheaval would only earn “condemnation” from the rest of the world.
“The world embraced EDSA I in 1986. The world tolerated EDSA II in 2001. The world will not forgive an EDSA III, but it will instead condemn the Philippines as a country whose political system is hopelessly unstable,” she said.
Ms Arroyo has been a target of coup plots since she took office eight years ago.
