Duterte doesn’t see a problem with political dynasties: Hindi mapigilan ang tao eh!

Dec 6, 2017 @ 21:11

President Rodrigo Duterte isn’t a critic of political dynasties, even though some politikos practically lord over an area with their family’s help.

“You have been a mayor, ang anak mo vice mayor, congressman o kung sino-sino, wala mang problema diyan sa dynasty,” he said in a speech at the oathtaking of new government officials Wednesday (December 6).

“Hindi mo mapigilan ang tao eh,” he added.

Duterte, however, stressed that his daughter, Sara, was only forced to run for mayor of Davao City in 2016 because he said he will not join the presidential race if she didn’t.

The President mentioned political dynasties as he talked about how politikos are complicit in the drug trade.

“Mayor ka, hawakan mo isang syudad then there is no election, a clean election for the longest time, kaya papatayin mo ‘yung mga ano mo, then you use your office as the platform of your drug operation,” he said.
