"The Armed Forces, before it makes its recommendation to the commander-in-chief, must have enough basis - an intelligent basis - to make whatever recommendations there is for the extension or the lifting", Padilla said.
"Before we decide grant of extension for ML (martial law) in Mindanao, will still wait for the briefing by DND and AFP anytime soon", Mr. Ejercito said, adding: "No commitment until finish security briefing from DND and AFP".
They also stressed the need for the task force to be culturally-sensitive in carrying out the rehabilitation plan for Marawi, whose inhabitants are mostly Maranaos or the "people of the lake".

This is in the face of Alvarez's insistence that there is a swell tide of favorable sentiment toward continuing martial law. This is nothing like the Marcos martial law at all.
Under the 1987 Constitution, the President may declare martial law for a maximum of 60 days - or July 22 in this case.
Alvarez said he is ready to marshal his fellow legislators for the goal of extending martial law "in order to give this administration enough time to resolve the problem of terrorism in Mindanao".
Mr. Duterte's martial law in Mindanao has the highest approval among college graduates at 70%, compared to the 57% among elementary graduates, 55% among non-elementary graduates, and 54% among high school graduates.
Duterte placed the entire Mindanao island under martial law after clashes broke out between government troops and the ISIS-linked Maute Group and Abu Sayyaf. "Both Palace and AFP are lukewarm and have distanced themselves from Alvarez's proposal", he said.

Under the law, the President has to ask congress to extend martial law and lawmakers will decide how long it will be imposed.
