On the Reported ‘Direct Hand’ of Mayor Sara Duterte in the House’s Leadership Change

If talks about Mayor Sara Duterte having a direct hand and influence in the change of House leadership were true, it may not speak well of President Duterte’s much-touted “strong leadership.”

Any power or authority delegated outside the official chain of the government bureaucracy should not only be discouraged, but challenged and checked at the soonest possible opportunity.

We should not have a repeat of our past experiences under the previous administrations from Marcos to PNoy, where persistent talks of interventions and influence-peddling by relatives of sitting presidents did not help any in the efficient and smooth management of state affairs.
