Future PH Presidents should emulate Duterte - Panelo



Being the President of a country is a feat on its own.

Along with the territory is that you have to work your ass of and still expect some quarters will not be pleased with what your doing.

Criticisms, constant bashing, baseless personal attacks , and the vicious crab mentality that is embedded in our DNA as Filipinos comes along with the territory when one occupies Malacanang.

100 million plus Filipinos are looking up to the president expecting him to create an everyday miracle because they don’t expect less from a president of the Republic of the Philippines.

Salvador Panelo puts Duterte in such high regard saying that Rodrigo Duterte has already set a high standard as President of the country that whoever will follow in his steps would have a hard time matching his achievements.

This was the honest to goodness assessment made by Atty. Panelo, he has already labelled the next occupant of Malacanang must have the same characteristics of Duterte if they want to succeed.

“Well, my take is that this president has set a standard of a leader in this country, and there is no other way from those who will succeed him to be like him. One underlying principle serving and protecting this country,” Atty. Panelo said.
“He has set the standards of how a leader should govern this country,” he added.
The Presidential Legal counsel, however , said the future chief executive should still try to replicate Duterte.

“[They] should be like him—in other words, courageous, independent, diplomatic, creative. He’s a thinking president,” Panelo said.

Atty. Panelo points to the fact that President Duterte was able to establish a stong and very healthy bilateral with China, setting aside a possible escalation of hostilities in the area, where may political analyst as Asia’s “Flashpoint.”

And we have also made giant strides with our bilateral ties with Russia and the rest of the country’s he has gone to, Israel, Jordan are some of the few countries the President was able to visit in the first half of his presidency.
