16th President of the Philippines – Rodrigo Duterte, will currently consider above the leadership of the Republic of the Philippines. Hope and concern accompany this adjust. What is to be predicted?

I commence with two remarks: The title photo is from “The Inquirer“. I selected it, since it shows all the sides of hoe and worry that come with Duterte.  Next: Silent Gardens does not comment politics. So I just set the political plan in a list, but no reviews.

This listing is extremely extensive and extremely bold. In a smaller and compact nation This “six a long time program” looks to be possible. But in these a large country composed of 7107 islands the obstacle is actually an overhelming act of defiance. Above checklist exhibits no unique precedence apart from the second place on crime, corruption and drugs. On June 30, 2019, at Duterte’s mid-phrase, I’ll critique this list.

Good luck Mr. President – superior luck Philippines!
