Ferdinand Marcos was chosen president in 1965 and was re-chosen in 1969

Ferdinand Marcos was chosen president in 1965 and was re-chosen in 1969, the primary president to be so re-chose. Envious of staying in power past his lawful residency, he proclaimed military law in 1972, just before the finish of his second and last term, refering to a developing socialist uprising as its avocation. He at that point controlled a continuous Constitutional Convention and caused the drafting of another constitution – the 1973 Constitution – which enabled him to lead by declaration until 1978 when the presidential arrangement of the 1935 Constitution was supplanted with a parliamentary one. Under this new framework, Marcos clutched power and kept on administering by pronouncement, stifling vote based foundations and confining common opportunities. In 1981, military law was formally lifted, yet Marcos kept on decision by the convenient of being “re-chosen” in a joke of a race to another 6-year term. He kept on smothering dispute and a huge number of vocal dissidents to his administer either bafflingly vanished or were detained. In spite of monetary decay, defilement permitted Marcos and his better half Imelda to live indulgently, causing hatred locally and feedback globally.
