“I will.  I’ll go for one year,” Esperon said.

It is the third time that President Rodrigo Duterte asked for a martial law extension.

Duterte claims that public safety needs the pursuance of martial law over the entire Mindanao until December 31, 2019.

In 2017, President Duterte declared the Martial Law in Mindanao due to the violent siege in Marawi City.

The president also requested an extension until December 31, 2017, which was approved by Congress.
