The meeting of the five President of the Republic was made through the effort of Pres. Duterte as the four previous leaders joined in the initial meeting of the National Security Council.
The members of the National Security Council includes living Presidents, the President, Vice-President, Senate President, House Speaker, majority and minority leaders of both House of Congress and the Philippine Senate, the Chairs of Senate and House Committees involved in national security concerns, and various members of the Cabinet.
Overall there are about 35 leader members of the National Security Council and they came from the executive and legislative branches of government.
In a briefing Wednesday, Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella declined to give specifics on the topics of the NSC meeting but said the former Chief Executives were expected to extend their “support.”
In an earlier post on Facebook, the Presidential Communications Office (PCO), said government’s Road Map for Peace and Development would be presented during the NSC meeting along with “vital policies and strategies on important matters, including the recent ruling of the Permanent Court of Arbitration on the West Philippine Sea.”
