President Rodrigo Duterte refused to be drawn into giving a grade on his efficiency in his first yr in workplace as he insisted that such evaluation ought to be made solely on the finish of his time period in 2022.
In an interview with reporters, Duterte likened the presidency to a “rollercoaster” journey which for him has not but run its course.
“I only make an assessment after my term. It’s a roller coaster actually, while you are there it’s a roller coaster, it should be at the end of the ride,” stated Duterte.
He appealed to critics to be fair in judging his administration, particularly if he doesn’t full his time period.
“If I get to live (up to the end of my term), I will tell you.If I don’t exist by that time, you make your own assessment. Just be fair,” stated Duterte.
