From the Presidential Spokesperson – On Forbes’ List of the World’s Most Powerful People 2018

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has many times acknowledged that the true source of power is the people.

As Chief Executive for almost two years, he has faithfully served our people by promoting the interests of the Filipino people and the Filipino nation first.

The anti-drug war, the pursuit of an independent foreign policy, the pro-poor policies and programs of the Duterte administration among others are reflective of the current government’s advancing the welfare of the greatest number of our countrymen.

The Presidency, in the mind of PRRD, begins and ends with public trust where real power emanates.
