I think that this is a good system to be used in our country but like I said before I’m not sure if Filipinos can handle it or if peace will remain. Another is that with the current qualifications for the presidential position I don’t think we’ll be able to have an effective one since I think the following candidates will just be actors and create a very catchy theme song to win the elections.

Rodrigo Duterte should be elected as the next president here in the Philippines Many people have different choices and opinions on whom they are going to elect as the next president here in the Philippines. Binay, Poe, Santiago, Roxas, and Duterte. But with these people, there is only one person who could bring shivers to the criminals and law-breakers, and that is no other than, Rodrigo Duterte. Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte should be elected as the next president here in the Philippines because he is a man of action, he is firm, he is decisive, he is being true to his self, and he is an advocate or a supporter.

Government change from presidential to parliamentary would result to a leader that has a sufficient knowledge in politics, no separation of power, lesser cabinet members, and most of all passing of laws would be faster. In some countries parliamentary is their governing political system, these countries are: Singapore, United Kingdom, Thailand, and many more. Taken for example Singapore, we could always hear that they have the world-class university, world class airport, and world class business center. Looking back in the history of the Philippines during the Marcos administration, we were much like the Singapore at that time, many foreign investors would flock Philippines just to invest. We also had the first airlines and airport in Asia, which is the Philippines Airlines, and the Manila International Airport
One of the main characteristics of the Philippine party system before the revolution of 1986 is its two party system. Nacionalista and the Liberals are the two core parties that compete during elections (Lande 1976, 19) However much has changed since then.
