REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A New York Times editorial titled “Political Mischief in the Philippines” called for President Benigno Aquino III to step down from office when his term ends two years from now.

The New York Times editorial said Aquino is hinting at a new term in office and limiting the Philippine Supreme Court’s authority – both threats that jeopardize Philippine democracy. The opinion piece adds that these would require changes to the constitution.

Aquino has eluded to stepping down after his term ends in 2016, but he has not made a categorical statement if he wants another term.
