French Legion in the Philippines

Did the French occupied the Philippines? I see some French Legion infantries along Roxas Boulevard.

Seriously, the new khaki uniform of MMDA Officers look like the French Legion uniforms at first glance. Or some Police Officers during the President Marcos regime. What was wrong with the old uniform?

What will be the next move of the MMDA? Issue rifles to their officers? Is the new uniform a show of force?

I don't really know, but I find the new uniforms not suitable for the job.
