    Default AFP wants mandatory ROTC revived


    AFP wants mandatory ROTC revived

    MANILA, Philippines—The Armed Forces of the [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Philippines[/COLOR][/COLOR] (AFP) on Tuesday welcomed the proposal to repeal the National Service Training Program Law of 202 and make the Reserve Officers Training Corps. (ROTC) mandatory for male college students.
    AFP spokesman Brigadier General Jose Mabanta said the revival of the ROTC would provide the military a “mobilizeable reserve force.”
    “We all know that the total force is made up of the regular force backed up by a mobilizeable reserve force, that’s why we see the importance of having the ROTC because the ROTC will form the officer corps of the mobilizeable [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]reservist[/COLOR][/COLOR],” Mabanta said in a press briefing held at the Defense Press Corps office at Camp Aguinaldo.
    ROTC was made optional following the death in 2001 of a University of Santo Tomas cadet Mark Chua, who made an exposé on alleged irregularities in the ROTC. This prompted the passage of Republic Act 9163 or the NSTP Law.
    When asked how the military would address the issue of hazing of ROTC trainees, Mabanta said: “the best thing really is to have better personnel to man and of course equipage will be very important.”
    At the same time, he said that human rights advocacy would play an important role in addressing the issue.
    ROTC should instil discipline among the youth. “From discipline starts everything. If you have discipline you will be encouraged to study, we will have strong mind and body,” Mabanta said.
    Aside from discipline, ROTC teaches “patriotism, nationalism, love of country” which Mabanta said are “the basics of what Filipinos are.”
    “So we still believe that ROTC should be enforced, reinforced,” he told reporters, adding, “The [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]armed [COLOR=blue! important]forces[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], as a whole, believe that it should be made mandatory.”
    He said it would be up to [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Congress[/COLOR][/COLOR] to repeal NTSP, which was signed into law by then president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2002.
