first year of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was full of violence, controversies,
and progress. Before he was elected the media was already full of news about
deaths in crime. And after he was elected the death rate of drug related incidents

Furthermore even if the first year is a bit unsatisfactory, I can still see a
