President Duterte is pushing for household planning after expressing concern there usually are not sufficient assets to assist the nation’s rising population.

The President, talking on the opening of Palarong Pambansa in Antique final Sunday (April 23), stated he plans to focus on population control with the Cabinet quickly.

“I’ll talk about population sana, but this is not the proper time. But I will again discuss this with the cabinet. We have to do some family planning. Our population really is not in parity with our resources. Hindi makaabot, dili ka tabla ba, even tabla,” stated Duterte.

“But there will be some forums on that. I’ll leave it to the elders, dito sa ating bayan,” he stated.
