“A leader must be a terror to the few who are evil in order to protect the lives and well-being of the many who are good.” Brave words from President Rodrigo Duterte. His journey in becoming the 16th president of the Republic of the Philippines has somehow been controversial seeing as he is quite different from past candidates.
Duterte is known for ruling with an iron fist, seeing that he has served Davao City as mayor for more than a decade and during that time he made Davao City one of the safest city in the world. Despite saying profanities even on-screen Duterte said that even with his mouth he will give the Filipinos a clean government.
What is important for us is that he will walk his talk. We are hoping that what he did in Davao City he will do to the whole Philippines as well. The president has already named his Cabinet members, the ones who will be part of the Duterte Administration. The trusted ones who will hopefully be people who will help our country progress and our economy develop.
The people have chosen him to lead this country to greatness and have given him our trust. The Duterte Administration must do their job and give us the progressive change he has planned for the whole nation. As a nation all of us must cooperate and follow the laws so that this new administration is also new hope for us.
