Pres. Duterte Speaks on Political Career, Plan After Presidential Term Ends
DUTERTE – Outgoing President Rodrigo Roa Duterte revealed his plan after his term will end on June 30, 2022.
The current administration’s term is about to end. This June 30, Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte will step down as the country’s chief executive and another administration will start its term. He is the 16th President of the Republic of the Philippines and the oldest to have been elected as president of the country.
A former Davao City Mayor, he was already 71 years old when he won a landslide victory last 2016 Elections. He served Davao for around 20 years. Currently, his children are holding key positions in their hometown.
The current admin focused on the war against drugs and corruption as the President has promised when he was still running for the position. Several drug personalities were nabbed while erring government officials were either asked to resign or were fired. However, his anti-drug campaign has also been a subject of controversy.
Aside from the war against drugs and corruption, Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte also gave priority to the “Build, Build, Build” program. A lot of infrastructure projects were lodged under the current administration.
During the filing of candidacy for May 2022 Elections, there were calls for the President to run for vice president or senator. However, he did not run for another position in the government.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, with regards to his plans after he steps down as president on June 30, Pres. Duterte said that he will be “an ordinary citizen”. He is already 77 years old and he has doubts if he can still read documents next year considering that he is now having vision problems.
“I used to be a shining star, but after June 30, I will only be an ordinary citizen at ganoon na lang kalaki. Ganoon ang buhay,” the Chief Executive said.
