Regional Poll • Thoughts on Duterte's First SONA?

The Holy Republic of Ariusgrad wrote:On July 25, President Rodrigo Duterte delivered his first State of the Nation Address. From the original 38-minute script, the speech itself was extended to 98 minutes, making it one of the longest in recent history (President B. S. Aquino's last SONA was 130 minutes). Any thoughts on the president's address and its content? Discuss further in the RMB.

Voting opened 1 day 21 hours ago and will close . Open to residents. You cannot vote as you are not logged in.

Last poll: “What do you think of the so-called "DU process"?”

Thats probably the case. But next time around it could be a different scenario. Or perhaps we can look back what happened in 2010 and 2004 elections.

The Republic of Fuga Federation wrote:"Democracy sans majority tyranny" may only mean "consensus democracy". The problem with this is the question of decisiveness and resposiveness to every particular issue.
Our constitution on the other hand, with all its peculiarities, designed our government to be ruled by "tyranny of plurality" because we do not have run-off election for the presidency yet holds so much explicit and latent powers. Duterte got 15M votes out of 50M registered voters which translates to 30% of the total votes. Yet he got the mandate by virtue of our constitution. Its good thing he got a high approval rating at present at 91%. This means there are only few disapproving him even only 30% voted for him last election.
However it's possible to have a scenario that a president got 30% of the votes while the remaining 70% disapproves him completely.
My point is there is wisdom in having a run off election for the presidency considering that this position in our country bears so much power and responsibility.


This begs the question as to why the conversation of having run-off elections does not exist anywhere in the Philippine political landscape.

Because we literally copied the American Constitution. Why? Neo-colonialism

We must tear apart the 1987 document and reclaim the 1899 Malolos constitution for ourselves!

Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! Asia for Asians!

MABUHAY!

Indeed, for only if we go back to our past and true selves can our nation be truly great!

President Duterte reiterated his call for a Federal-Parliamentary government. He wants the France model. He wants a referendum/plebiscite 3-4 years from now. Senate President Koko Pimentel already filed a resolution calling for a constitutional convention. Exciting times ahead.

If it's a federal-parliamentary form of government you might mean Germany or India. France has a semipresidential unitary form of government. Though it has a minister, the president is still more powerful than the former. And it is as unitary as you can get. The administrative regions are firmly controlled by the central government.

Update: Our 2011 regional constitution and the 2012 revision have been retrieved in full and are now posted in our regional history page. Take time to review them. Again, after the Interim Cabinet is organized, the selection of delegates for the Constitutional Convention would follow. You can send your application to the Delegate today. Our target date to have the 2016 regional constitution ratified through referendum is August 2016. Thank you. For unity, stability, progress.

Heads up! It has been planned that this coming month of August, our fifth (5th) anniversary celebration be finally commemorated. As you may know, this region is founded on January 17, but perhaps it is better late than never. Kindly discuss which theme we would have for that month so we can orient a line of activities centered upon it. In addition, since August is National History Month, take time to read history articles from the history blog linked above. Thank you. For unity, stability, progress.
