MALACAÑANG said President Rodrigo Duterte’s first year in office “felt like three years” because of the amount of work his administration has accomplished, and took aim at critics who act “as if they were not Filipinos.”

After winning the presidential race with a commanding lead over his closest rivals, Duterte will mark his first year in office on Friday, June 30, still trying to fulfill his campaign promise of change.

“You know it actually feels like three years already, right? Considering the amount of work to be done, considering the challenges and all the matters that have been addressed,” said Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella.

Duterte’s spokesman added that he simply wished for people to be “more united in appreciating [the President] and not act as if they were not Filipinos.”

Now dealing with an Islamic State-inspired terrorist threat in Mindanao where he declared martial law, Duterte, 72, may be hard pressed to fulfill his promises.

The president’s strategy has obvious potential pitfalls — and not just because of the grief and anger spread by the mounting drug death toll. His apology to the people of Marawi this week was a recognition of the damage that the siege and a wider upsurge in attacks by Isis-aligned groups could
inflict on his popularity in his Mindanao homeland.
