Filipinos who wish to work for the administration need not meet eligibility criteria to qualify for a government post, President Rodrigo Duterte said.

In a speech in Bulacan on Monday, Duterte said one must only be “competent” and “honest” to apply for a job in the government.

“[A]ng hinihingi ko lang naman sa gobyerno ganito if you want to work during my term, you are competent and you are honest, period,” according to him.

“Wala na eligibility-eligibility. I am not trying to degrade the qualification, the level of qualification pero bigyan mo lang ako ‘yung honest person tapos ‘yung hindi corrupt,” he added.
