The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

MANILA: The gov­ern­ment of Philip­pine leader Rodrigo Duterte has been a “huge dis­ap­point­ment and let­down”, ac­cord­ing to a former pres­i­dent and one of his men­tors, buck­ing pop­u­lar sen­ti­ment and a high opin­ion poll rat­ing for his first 100 days in of­fice. In rare crit­i­cism of Duterte, 88-year-old Fidel Ramos said the gov­ern­ment was “los­ing badly” by pri­ori­tis­ing a con­tro­ver­sial war on drugs at the ex­pense of is­sues such as poverty, liv­ing costs, for­eign in­vest­ment and jobs. – Reuters
