Duterte seeks general amnesty for political prisoners

Optimism reigns among members of the communist movement in the country, as presumptive president Rodrigo Duterte vies for the granting of general amnesty to all political prisoners, mostly identified with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). However, the details of the proposal will have to be ironed out once the new sets of peace panels are formed, and Congress will have to pass it into law.
