President Duterte , who ran on a promise to end corruption, admits that there is still corruption in his government, and that there will still be corruption in succeeding administrations. Related report:
MANILA — President Rodrigo Duterte said on Wednesday that while he would continue to fight corruption up to the last year of his stay in Malacañang, a 'pristine clean' bureaucracy would be 'impossible.'
Duterte has created a task force to probe state-wide corruption. He also devotes a chunk of his weekly televised speeches to reading a list of officials either dismissed or suspended from their posts due to malfeasance. "I would dedicate the last remaining months of my stay in the office of the President going after corrupt people," he said in his latest public address.
"Do not expect me to entirely clean, pristine clean the bureaucracy. That is impossible, and cannot really be achievable." Repeating a warning for government personnel pocketing payoffs, Duterte said, "You should not be there in the service at all."
In 2016, Duterte won the presidency campaigning on a promise to fight corruption, crime, and illegal drugs.But his administration has been dogged by scandals and allegations of graft and cover-ups in state agencies ranging from prisons, the state insurer, immigration, airports and customs, to police and the drugs enforcement agency, few of which led to convictions or high-profile resignations. headtopics.com
The Philippines also fell 14 notches to 113th spot among 180 countries in Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index in 2019. Last year, the country slipped to more spots to 115th. Duterte is not eligible for re-election, but fulfilling his campaign pledge on corruption could help the chances of his chosen successor in the 2022 elections.
The justice department, which heads the anti-corruption task force, earlier said it would work with other government agencies on investigations.- With a report from Reuters FROM THE ARCHIVES: Read more: ABS-CBN News »

Nakakasilaw ang Pera, Dami kasing Gusto yumaman. Akala ko sa mga Engineer malapit ang corruption dahil sa Government projects at pulitiko. Ngayon pati Doctor na, kahit hindi Covid19 ang ikinamatay basta maka kubra sa Philhealth, Covid19 agad ang Cause of Death. Paano ito ngayon, ang mga naniwala ba sa kanya na wawaksan ang corruption kapag naging presidente siya, ay mga stupido din katulad noong naniwala sa kanya tungkol sa pagsakay sa jetski.

talagang meron pa at mas lumala kaya lang mas matindi ang takipan 😂 The biggest joker of all time! jokelang 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Moral lesson: WAG MAGYABANG! For future Presidentiable, just promise that those involved in corruption be exposed & put to jail forever. This will not end if the president & his family is involved that's why others don't take this offense seriously ! Myriam had promised to build a jail for corrupt people.
Sa palagay ko dumami ang korapsyon sa gubyerno under Duterte...yun nga lang magaling silang magtago ngayon kaysa nuon. Bakit nga ba...? Eh si Duterte ang number one corrupt, eh. Eh yung end of contractualization in 3-6 months ano ng nangyari do ba wala din.

Bato is one of the 16M supporters of the president whom the latter just plainly and simply called stupid

TVPatrol Addressing social illness like corruption falls within the realm of religion. Corruption is a failure of the religious institutions to instill ethics and morals among its members. Religious institutions are actually serving as fronts for intelligence gathering and psy-ops... di talaga mawawala ang corruption sa kahit saang gobyerno pero ang tanong is anong ginawa para di lumala at maalis ang mga sistemang sanhi ng corruption
