DUTERTE leading TIME 100 Magazine Annual list of influential people in the world



The TIME 100 annual list of the most influential people in the world—features a number of leading artists, politicians, lawmakers, scientists and leaders of tech and business. Although TIME's editors will choose the final list of honorees, TIME want readers to share their choices with us as well.

Did football player Colin Kaepernick or Oscar-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins strike you as most influential this year? What about the Women's March co-chairs, Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Bob Bland? Or perhaps Steve Bannon or Kellyanne Conway, close advisers to President Donald Trump? Or our President Rodrigo Duterte who was part of the cover of the magazine of last years May issue?

Peter Laviña, Duterte’s spokesperson, confirmed to INQUIRER.net that the Davao City mayor has appeared on the cover of the prestigious magazine. The cover featured a smiling Duterte in a photo by Edwin Tuyay with the headline, “The Punisher: Why Rodrigo Duterte is the Philippines’ new leader,” written by Charlie Campbell.

Filipino personalities who have previously graced the cover of Time magazine include former president Corazon Aquino and boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.

During the 90-day campaign, the tough-talking mayor repeatedly vowed to stop crime, illegal drugs and corruption in government within the first six months in office.

Known for his iron-fisted leadership in Davao City, Duterte has been tagged for extrajudicial killings during his term as mayor for over 22 years.
But Duterte has denied these allegations, saying police operations in his city were legitimate.

To implement his anticrime drive, he has pronounced that his presidency would be a dictatorship but only against society’s bad elements.
Known for his profanity-laced speeches, Duterte has vowed to be “prim and proper” once he assumes his post as president.

He said he could no longer be rude since he would be speaking for the country.
Once officially proclaimed as the winning candidate, Duterte will be the 16th president of the Republic of the Philippines.

Time (styled within the magazine as TIME) is an American weekly news magazine published in New York City. It was founded in 1923 and for decades was dominated by Henry Luce, who built a highly profitable stable of magazines.

Time has the world's largest circulation for a weekly news magazine, and has a readership of 26 million, 20 million of which are based in the United States

President Rodrigo Duterte is leading TIME Magazine’s online poll for its annual list of 100 most influential people in the world.

As of Sunday afternoon, Duterte has garnered four percent of total votes, ahead of other global figures like Pope Francis (3 percent), Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (2 percent), Beyonce (2 percent), and German chancellor Angela Merkel (2 percent).

As of this writing, other personalities who secured 2 percent of votes include Bill Gates, Bernie Sanders, Serena Williams, Mark Zuckerberg, J.K. Rowling, Emma Watson, Oprah Winfrey, Viola Davis, Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, Lady Gaga, and Vladmir Putin.

Duterte has gained global attention following his electoral victory in May and his administration’s controversial “war” on drugs, which has been called out by international rights groups due to supposed human rights violations and extrajudicial killings.

Recently, the firebrand Davao mayor turned President has been featured in a New York Times article titled “Becoming Duterte: The Making of a Philippine Strongman,” which Malacañang denounced as sounding “like a well-paid hack job.”

Cast your vote below. Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. E.T. on April 16, and the winner of the reader poll will be announced immediately after. This year's official TIME 100 list will be announced April 20.
