President Rodrigo Duterte, the man who was recently voted to become the president of the Philippines, is a man that people from the international community have been watching over the past couple of months because of his strong personality and arrogance when speaking with the media.
Now, many question his accomplishments as he passes his first 100 days, and how he has done compared to former President Benigno Aquino III.
When he passed the 100-day mark, President Aquino got home from his first overseas trip which was in the United States of America and brought home good news.
As he got back, he brought with him an investment that was worth US$2.4 billion and was believed to have produced 40,000 to 200,000 new jobs that helped boost the growing economy of the Philippines. According to experts from esteemed institutions, they rated his first 100 days as a success.
During an interview on ANC’s “The Rundown”, former Finance Secretary Roberto de Ocampo gave Aquino a grade of 8 out of 10.
Being part of the academe, de Ocampo said that he always liked leaving room for improvement.
"A presidential visit should be measured in terms of what its objectives were, and whether those were accomplished and what was tangibly brought back,” de Ocampo said.
Another political analyst, UP National College of Public Administration and Governance Professor Prospero de Vera, said that he rates Aquino’s first 100 days with a 1.8 mark, using the UP grading system.
Aquino did a great job in projecting his new presence as the new president when he was first seated, and this is not different from the present commander in chief, President Rodrigo Duterte.
However, citizens are already doubtful of the good he will bring because he has already brought so much unnecessary attention from his arrogant speaking and poor choice of words.
