President Rodrigo Duterte does not see any worthy individual who will continue his war on drugs, crime and corruption once he steps down in 2022.
“You know, I’m about to close my presidency in a matter of months. I really do not know who’s going to be the next president,” said Duterte in a speech.
“And looking at the political horizon there, kung sinong ma-presidente, I’m so pessimistic but I’m sad that no one there would…Puro kasi ano. I don’t know about one or two, mga hipokrito na… They were doing it before their time there in the Senate. Pero sumasali sa mga atake na ganun,” he added.
Duterte said he was sad for the “next generation” of Filipinos especially if the next president would take a step or two back from the gains he made.
“Ang gusto ko lang masiguro kasi na malaman ninyo ‘pag hindi natin nahinto ang graft and corruption and if there is no law and order sa ating bayan, even if you give the Philippines another 20 years with the same set-up, with the same — the Constitution itself is tailored for corruption,” he said.
“Ayaw ko naman mag-insulto ng tao, ng mga tao. So, ewan ko. Sa inyo na ‘yan. Pero ganito. Maawa ko. I’m thinking of the next generation, what would be in store for them,” he added.
