Erice: Duterte looked like a sloppy leader in barong at ASEAN meet
President Rodrigo Duterte was less than a head-turner at the recently-concluded Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit.
That was the fashion review of Caloocan City second-district Rep. Edgar Erice when asked to comment on the President’s performance at the summit.
Duterte met world leaders at the Asean event wearing a barong with the top button unfastened.
“The sloppy way of wearing the barong of the president is something that downgrades the image of a Filipino leader,” Erice said.
“I think a president shouldn’t be lousy and sloppy in the way he dresses specially while representing the Filipinos in an international major event,” the Magnificent 7 lawmaker said.
