Can President Rodrigo Roa Duterte conclude a valid oral executive agreement with China to allow Chinese fishing vessels to enter the Philippines` exclusive economic zone? Elsewhere, I have written that executive agreements in Philippine law are quite interesting animals, especially because they are normally based on an earlier treaty that would be implemented by such executive agreements. They therefore show what right-wing theorists would call a “quasi-monistic” character (because they no longer require legislative – or even judicial – measures). .
