Duterte popularity puzzles solon

For Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, it's perplexing that President Duterte has continued to enjoy a high popularity rating despite his "irreverence" for institutions, pro-China stance and violation of human rights. The President scored a net satisfaction rating of +56 during the first quarter this year, according to a Social Weather Stations survey taken from March 23 to 27. This is a two-point drop from his +58 rating last December. Both ratings were considered "very good." "It is a puzzle that despite the failure of President Rodrigo Duterte to deliver most of his campaign promises, his irreverence to established institutions, including the Catholic Church, his unpatriotic surrender ...Keep on reading: Duterte popularity puzzles solon.....»»

The Duterte administration has impounded some P975 billion in unspent public funds in its first two years in office, members of the minority bloc in the House of Representatives said on Wednesday.

Citing official government records, Coop-Natcco Rep. Anthony Bravo said the Duterte administration's fiscal performance was actually worse than its predecessor as government underspending hit nearly P388.4 billion last yea...Keep on reading: Duterte’s unspent funds will surpass Aquino’s – solon.....»»

NEW YORK--- In Manila last month for some work, I managed to interview Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, arguably the fiercest opposition solon---aside from Senator Leila de Lima, now in detention on what most believe are trumped-up drug charges. Senator Trillanes is a rather large thorn in President Duterte's side. In June, the president, railing against the young senator in his native Cebuano, stated that "he believes that he's the only tough one around because nobody fought him back. But there will come a day that someone will shoot him because he's arrogant." Since this interview, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has been deposed and in his place is former president and now Congresswoman...Keep on reading: Sen.
