Research Paper Martial Law

Profile image of Shaira Jane Pacomios

The undesirable happenings during the reign of Ferdinand Marcos were a worst nightmare to every Filipino who witnessed its cruelty and vindictiveness. Martial law was never an answer to the problem of the country during that time. But, by the power vested to Marcos, martial law was implemented. Ferdinand Marcos ruled the Philippines, for more than 20 years . He promised to make the nation great again in his inaugural speech of December 30, 1965. His political venture began with his election to the House of Representatives in 1949 as a Congressman from Ilocos. He became Senate President in 1963. He was married to Imelda Romualdez from Leyte. He ran for President as Nacionalista in 1965 election and won over Macapagal.

The essay analyzes the historical relevance, confluence of contributing factors, and broader systemic implications of the emphatic electoral victory of Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in the 2022 Philippine presidential election. Accordingly, it provides an overview of the structural vulnerabilities of Philippine democracy, the contingent factors that facilitated Marcos Jr.'s electoral success, the personal background and predisposition of the new president, and the likely key features and policy thrusts of his presidency. Overall, the essay frames Marcos Jr.'s victory as the latest victory of authoritarian populism. In historical terms, it represents the latest "counterrevolution" in modern history, namely, the successful return to power of the ancien régime through systematic exploitation of the vulnerabilities of postrevolutionary regimes.

This essay attempts to illustrate the role of U.S. foreign policy in Philippine politics during the reign of Ferdinand Marcos, along with the assassination of popular opposition leader Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., leading to the comparatively peaceful transition that followed the fraudulent 1986 election. This point marked the end of Marcos’ slowly perishing regime and paved the way for a new democratic government under Corazon Aquino. Both the tragic event that left Aquino dead only minutes after his arrival from exile at Manila airport on August 23, 1983, as well as the subsequent change in U.S. perception of the ageing Marcos and his ability to manage domestic problem were crucially important in helping the country overcome and eventually end 21 years of suppressive presidential rule. Furthermore, it tries to cast light on the complex developments during the final years of Marcos’ autocratic rule and Washington’s constant inability and reluctance to critically discuss political reality in the Philippines. It also talks about Marcos’ ability to hold off political opponents, among which Aquino was the most influential and with whom he shared a special relationship of mutual respect and even admiration.
