People around the world are a bit shock why Duterte won the presidency. He was showered with black propaganda and a lot of people criticize him for his rumored 'killer' image. Why still he won the hearts of almost sixteen million Filipinos who voted him in the recently concluded elections.
My analysis is that he is not the a 'trapo' (traditional politician) who always makes so many promises but if you are going to look at previous accomplishments - there is nothing impressive that can be proud of...and he is VERY VERY honest to the point that he is like an open-book revealing every secrets within. He never brags of his being playboy but never denies his concubine. He did not change the way he speaks how ever tactless he is - speaking of bad words not worthy of being a Christian as others might thought of him. But the good thing is that, we see who he really is unlike the others who are being playful, tactless plus corrupt behind the eyes of the public displaying image far from what we see as they project in the outside world.
I was impressed when I watched him during the debates, I never thought that he is that brilliant!He is a lawyer. Honestly, I see him as a 'gang leader' before, all-fist and no more BUT after the debates he emerged as a real good candidate to be the next leader of this land. He is not just sturdy, but witty! Possessing a will power that made Davao City a peaceful community bagging the fourth rank in Asia.
