Daig pa ibang presidente! Elpidio Barzaga says Duterte’s drug war a success

Nov 23, 2019 @ 9:29

Comparing records of past Presidents, Cavite Rep. Elpidio Barzaga said President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign against illegal drugs is more successful compared to his predecessors.

In a statement, Barzaga said Duterte is the first President to expose a list of narco-politicians— ranging from congressmen to mayors; and even naming some members of the judiciary, as well as the so-called ninja generals and cops.

“It is a bold and brave move of the President to make such public declaration considering that drug problem is a complicated social problem involving powerful syndicates,” he said.

Barzaga noted that the President’s “very good” satisfaction rating in the third quarter Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey reflects the accomplishment of his war on drugs which is the centerpiece of his administration.

“Indeed, President Duterte has started a radical leadership that targets even the hardest and seemingly unending problem of illegal drugs,” he said.
