    Assuming he will be the next president of the republic, below is his campaign platform. We can do a reality check for the next 6 years.

    Headlines | Philstar Mobile

    CAMPAIGN PLATFORM:

    I want to change the government system to federalism, since it is the only way to ensure development for Mindanao.

    I will sustain the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) to provide food on the table.

    I will solve crime, illegal drugs and corruption in the government within the first three to six months of my presidency.

    Labor contractualization weakens the skills of the Filipino workers, so I oppose it. I will create jobs by reviving the industrialization of the Philippine steel industry.

    I will have a simplified tax collection system and create “business islands” to generate employment.

    CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

    *

    • Credited for helping transform Davao into a clean, green, gender-sensitive and highly urbanized city;

    • Cited for restoring and maintaining law and order in Davao and helping it to be recognized in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 as the city in Region XI with Best Peace and Order by the National Peace and Order Council of the National Police Commission;

    • Effectively implemented Davao’s no smoking ordinance in all public places, imposing hefty fines on violators;

    • Implemented a stricter liquor serving and selling prohibition from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. to reduce crimes caused by alcohol intoxication;

    • Implemented the total firecracker and pyrotechnics ban since 2001 resulting in minimal or zero firecracker-related injuries;

    • Pushed the Speed Limit Ordinance that only allows motorists to drive up to 30 kph in the downtown areas and a maximum 60 kph in the city border;

    • Restricted videoke usage in public establishments up to 10 p.m. since 2004. The loud noise prohibition is part of Davao’s Anti-Nuisance Ordinance that applies to any place within the city including residential areas.,

    NET WORTH: P23.5 million (2015 SALN), P21.9 million (2014 SALN)

    TOP CAMPAIGN SUPPORTER: Pastor Apollo Quiboloy

    NATIONAL CAMPAIGN MANAGER: Leoncio Evasco Jr.

    MEDIA MANAGER: Peter Laviña

    KEY ADVISERS:** Consults with former Prime Minister Cesar Virata on economic matters because I am not an economic person.

    ON POSSIBLE APPOINTMENTS:

    • I offered BIR post to an ex-military man who is very honest but he refused.

    • I want a professional airport manager, not ex-military man.

    • I want Alan Peter Cayetano at DOJ or DFA.

    • I want to appoint a very competent head of DOTC which is the most corrupt agency now.

    • I plan to reorganize the DILG, possibly take out PNP from it and place it under me as commander-in-chief.

    *

    Why are you running?

    *

    I never wanted to run, which was why I did not file my certificate of candidacy on Oct. 15. But I saw that nobody was talking seriously about the country’s problems, especially in Mindanao. Some of the candidates could not even talk about criminality or corruption or illegal drugs. These are problems that need a firm decision and implementation of solutions.

    What will be the role of your first lady?

    She’ll cook for me, prepare the bed and put up the mosquito net.

    How about projects, what advocacy will she push?

    The first lady would have to feed the hungry children.

    Short-term goals

    I will start the ball rolling on federalism because that is the only form of government acceptable to the Moros. Short of that could lead to war. I will attend to drugs and criminality and corruption.

    Long-term goals

    More on economic programs. I will focus on small and medium businesses. I will task DTI to invest on SMEs so our graduates can have jobs. We will also establish regional economic zones, food terminals and post-harvest facilities.

    Executive Order No. 1

    Declaring criminality as an issue of national security and calling military into the helm. They are supposed to have police power,

    so the president being the commander-in-chief

    can take the lead.

    *

    HOW WILL YOU FIX..

    *

    Corruption

    Upon assumption, I will text all government officers “S-T-O-P” via text blast.*Kung ayaw mo puntahan kita. Sabihin ko PI. Tapos sampalin ko. Kung gusto kita, sipain kita. I might also decide to be the very best statesman that the Philippines could produce.

    *

    RED TAPE

    In Davao, you are only given 72 hours to complete permits and clearances.*

    SLOW INTERNET

    You better shape up or else I will allow the entry of all. Service will be cheaper if there is competition, and it’s more efficient. If Germany decides to come in, fine. Establish your own network. If China and Japan do the same, OK. Our firms must improve services dramatically or they will find competitors here.*

    *

    INEFFICIENT JUDICIARY

    It will take you until kingdom come if you fire them all. The judiciary problem is very hard. You have to talk to them. I have to admit that there is also corruption in the judiciary. I am a lawyer so I will be frank with them, the chief justice and everyone else. Sometimes the chief justice does not know everything. I’d rather appoint someone in his or her 60s. If I appoint a young CJ, it would be very difficult, much like our present SC chief.

    *

    MRT

    Rehabilitate the rails, add more trains so we can have a system like the two-minute waiting time in Hong Kong.

    AIRPORT WOES

    We have to rehab everything. Travel taxes are supposed to be dedicated to repair. The problem is that previous administrations did not do their jobs. I want the head to be an airport manager, not a military man. We should pay the airport staff competitively, support them financially. Raise their salaries.

    INADEQUATE INFRASTRUCTURE

    I will have to continue spending on that, but not in areas where corruption is widespread. I will use the money for agriculture.

    HIGH POWER COSTS

    If you invite the investors and outsiders, prices would fall dramatically. In Europe, the Germans and Scandinavian countries have almost perfected solar energy.

    POSITIONS ON:

    Charter change:*Immediately, I will create a commission to educate people about federalism. Then maybe after six months I’ll try to figure out if we are ready for a constitutional convention, but it has to be in accordance with the process directed by the Constitution.

    EDCA: We need it because of China.

    Patronage politics: As a politician with a recurring term, you cannot go with it.

    Reproductive health: I am for family planning in any form and the limiting to two or three children. But I am against abortion.

    China/West Phl Sea: That it is ours, and if they do not want to return it, still that is ours. We are allied with the West. We will go along with them and their objection for bilateral talks with China. But if after one or two years nothing is moving and it’s still in the water and no way to push the sails, I will agree to talk to them (China). Do not talk about ownership because that is ours, and let us go back to the original agreement of joint exploration of gas.

    STATE OF HEALTH

    Have you consulted a psychiatrist?

    When you want to get a firearm in this country, you have to submit to a psychiatrist.

    One psychiatrist report said you are a narcissistic anti-social?

    That report I dispute because I never talked to the psychiatrist who wrote or submitted that report.

    What is the state of the nation you are inheriting on June 30?

    Not really in misery but in its normal course. Drugs are flooding the country, corruption is growing. We must not change rules to favor one over the other.

    Relatively peaceful. If I succeed with federalism, then I can end corruption because it would be easily checked (under a federal system). A country that is, on a scale of one to 10, maybe I could improve it to 7. I’d be happy with that.

    How do you see the country at the end of your term?

    HOW WILL YOU...

    Encourage investments

    I will create investment economic zones in almost all of the regions. Then I will allow complete freedom to get profits out. All I need are jobs. I’m not interested in so much taxes. Initially, only human resources.

    Spur growth to catch up with ASEAN

    We have to improve law and order in this country. You have to get rid of the kidnappers. Also, we have to reform taxation. Lastly, make it so that contracts we entered into*cannot easily be revoked by the president. That’s what the president is there for, to honor the contract.

    Reduce poverty/promote inclusive growth

    The only way to do this is for people to have jobs. No job means no money. No money then the people suffer. The measure of growth is GDP. Are all your people working, do you have products to be sold? That is the backbone of the economy. We have to invite investors, invite the Chinese. They are so awash with money. They are willing to come in.

    Improve quality of education

    Nothing wrong with K-12 but it is just that our teachers must have seminars. They have to be at par with the teaching profession in the world. A teacher has to be attuned with the global environment and even the geopolitics of the country. You need somebody who is well-rounded.*I was against it but a priest in Ateneo explained to me the benefits.

    Make it easier to do business in the Phl

    Curb corruption. Do not change the rules midway.

    Part deux:

    Promote tourism

    We have to make it safe for them to go to Mindanao again and not be kidnapped. It is always a question of law and order.

    WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR:

    Health care

    Pagcor is where I would get the money for health. What I plan to do is we group three to five barangays which are not so populated and assign a doctor there. He will be the barangay doctor. Not everyone who is sick needs to be taken to hospital, but if there is a need for hospital intervention and machines, Pagcor money will be put away as a trust fund. I would request all hospitals, for the rich or for the poor, to go back to the practice of having an up to 30-bed facility, some kind of a charity ward and pay the hospitals with funds from Pagcor.

    Tax reform

    Give us time and we will come up with economic policies. But certainly, there are economic provisions in the law.

    Role of the Church

    No more. Why should they have a role when they asked people not to vote for me? I will not die if Catholics don’t vote for me.

    WHAT ARE THE COUNTRY’S BIGGEST PROBLEMS?

    Corruption and stagnation. We are really behind with anunderdeveloped economy and poor peace and order.

    ARE YOU IN FAVOR OF:

    IncludE casinos in AMLA: Yes

    Divorce: No

    Marcos burial at Libingan ng mga Bayani: Yes

    Same-*** marriage: YES, but needs legislation

    Income tax cut: Yes

    Lift mining moratorium: Conditional yes

    Freedom of Information: Yes

    Creation of DICT: Yes

    PHL joining TPP: FoR STUDY

    contractualization: NO

    Death penalty: YES,for heinous crimes

    Anti-dynasty law: UP TO WHAT DEGREE?

    Anti-epal law: Yes

    Total gun ban except for security forces: YES

    Wang-wang FOR VIPs: YES

    poor you, you decide based on bits of info and not taking the whole picture in consideration...

    there is always two sides to a story... example a vehicle, it can be used for good like transporting humans and it can be used for bad, example transporting illegal items...

    it all boils down on how you weigh the pros and cons by reading and analyzing the whole story and not reading the first few and then getting bored...

    still solid DU-CAY!

    not sure how reviving the steel industry will help the economy...

    there's currently an oversupply of steel because China overproduced them...

    reviving it will just cause an unnecessary bubble
    Damn, son! Where'd you find this?

    Labo nga nyan.

    A moving economy will pull the steel industry (which is what is happening now really). Forcing it will just create supply and credit problems.

    #The Cult of Duterte. 14M social media supporters in four months! Naluma niya and sect/cults inc, jil, kjc, etc., combined. Even the chair where he sat when he voted will be preserved in a museum.

    Its time PASSIVE cbcp change their attitude and endorse candidates. Soon, we'll be having female deacons.
    Divorce bill is just at the corner. Pati death penalty; and even same *** marriage?

    After all is said and done, it's time for all Filipinos to change for the better. If DU13 fails, lahat tayo olats.
