“Tingnan po natin ang mga susunod na mga pangyayari.”

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque has this to say on the country’s ranking in Germany-based watchdog Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) for 2020.

The Philippines dropped two places in the CPI, ranking 115th out of 180 countries.

In his televised briefing Monday, Roque reiterated that President Rodrigo Duterte will devote his last months in office to fighting corruption.

Duterte even turned to public shaming of government officials involved in corrupt practices to teach them a lesson, he also said.

“Bukod pa po diyan ay nandiyan na nga po iyong opisina ng ARTA para mabawasan iyong korapsiyon, maalis iyong discretion sa panig ng mga ahensiya ng gobyerno,” according to the Palace official.

“Nandiyan din po iyong Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission, na bukod pa sa Ombudsman na alam natin na kakaunti lang nag personnel ng Ombudsman na talagang hindi sapat doon sa gravity ng problema.

“Alam ng Presidente may problema pa at kaya nga sinabi-sabi niya na igugugol niya iyong dalawang taong natira niya, isa at kalahati na lang po ‘no, isa at kalahating [taon] na panahon na natitira sa kaniyang termino para lutasin itong problema ng korapsiyon,” he concluded.
