Tom Villarin says Duterte like Marcos in terms of corruption legacy


Tom Villarin said President Rodrigo Duterte’s “mega task force” vs corruption is unlikely to do anything to clean up his government’s acts.

The former Akbayan congressman said Duterte’s crackdown on corruption is just for show, a dash to suddenly clean up his image barely two years left into his reign.

“Populism and authoritarian rule just glosses over corruption as shown by history. Marcos did it before but ended up being Guinness’ record holder for corruption,” he said, with a warning that “history repeats itself.”
