PH in good hands with Poe or Duterte as president

/ 12:03 AM July 30, 2015

It’s possible for both Sen. Grace Poe and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to ultimately join the presidential race in 2016.

Mayor Duterte’s track record and no-nonsense approach to critical problems are known to Filipino voters far and wide. Ditto with Senator Poe’s utmost desire to lend a helping hand to the poor and downtrodden in our society. These two public officials’ sincerity, honesty and incorruptibility are qualities wanting in most of our politicians today.


So if and when they run for the presidency next year and either of them wins, the Philippines will be in good hands. And the victory may yet usher in a new era for our country and change altogether the political landscape where corruption and patronage politics stink to high heavens.
