Though he didn't mention any names, the Liberal Party's used yellow as its official color in the May 2016 elections. This is the color of the defeated Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas and the current Vice-president of the Philippines Leni Robredo.

But then, President Duterte cleared the Left, which has also organized rallies against Marcos burial.

"Pero iyong masabi ang Left, they will never even allow me to step down, two steps to the ground. Iyang mga komunista at iyong mga NPA [New People's Army], puro Duterte iyan," he said.
He stress that the yellow rallyists wanted him out.

"Ito, pulitika ito eh. They wanted me out. Siyempre iyong Vice President... Eh 'di kayo. You've had your chance," he said.
