  • Description

    REUTERS -- PRESIDENT FERDINAND MARCOS ADMITTED IN AN INTERVIEW TODAY THAT THERE WAS CORRUPTION AMONG SOME LOCAL PHILIPPINES GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND THEY WOULD BE DISMISSED OR PUNISHED SOON.

    THE PRESIDENT SAID IN AN INTERVIEW WITH VISNEWS, THE LONDON-BASED TELEVISION NEWS AGENCY, THAT HE HAD ORDERED "A PERFORMANCE AUDIT" OF PUBLIC OFFICIALS AT THE LOCAL LEVEL AFTER SATURDAY'S NATIONAL REFERENDUM IN WHICH HE SOUGHT RE-ENDORSEMENT IN OFFICE.

    ASKED ABOUT INDICATIONS THAT HE WOULD RECEIVE A 90 PER CENT "YES" VOTE, THE PRESIDENT REPLIED: "YES, IT COULD BE 90 PER CENT, EVEN A LITTLE BIT LESS TO MY MIND IN VIEW OF THE FACT THAT WE ACTUALLY ENCOURAGED THE OPPOSITION TO DISSENT AND CRITICISE THE POLICIES OF THE ADMINISTRATION."
    MR. MARCOS HAS NEVER RECEIVED LESS THAN A 90 PER CENT VOTE OF SUPPORT IN FOUR PREVIOUS REFERENDUMS.

    HE TOLD NEWSMEN YESTERDAY THAT SOME OF THE "NO" VOTES RECORDED AGAINST HIM IN SATURDAY'S REFERENDUM REFLECTED IN SOME CASES ON THE LOCAL LEADERSHIP.
