The bible of Philippine politics

Parehong sablay! Politiko fans think Tugade, Yasay both suck at their jobs


Who’s the worst performing Cabinet Secretary so far?

Between Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade or Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr., Politiko fans think both officials suck at their jobs big time during the first 100 days of the administration.

Results of Politiko’s online poll showed more than 3 in 10 netizens or 33 percent think both Tugade and Yasay are doing awful jobs leading their respective agencies.

Twenty-six percent of Politiko fans, meanwhile, wanted other names to be added to the list of choices for the title of “worst Cabinet Secretary.”

A little over 2 in 10 netizens think Tugade is the worst performing Cabinet official so far and the remaining 19 percent think Yasay isn’t doing his job right.

Politiko’s online poll was conducted from Oct. 9 to 15 with 815 netizens as respondents.

Tugade has drawn flak from lawmakers over the Department of Transportation’s incomplete and confusing proposal on how to use the emergency powers it seeks from Congress to solve the traffic mess in Metro Manila.

On the other hand, Yasay has come under fire for sometimes refuting President Rodrigo Duterte’s statements on foreign policy, such as the time when he denied hearing the Chief Executive say that the October joint military exercises between the United States and the Philippines will be the last during his term.
