It was only a few weeks ago when President Rodrigo Duterte declared that he would not allow his family to be exiled like former President Joseph Estrada. Duterte’s statement caused a stir in the Philippine political arena, with analysts weighing in on the implications of the president’s remarks.

Many political pundits have said that Duterte’s statement is a political survival tactic. They argue that Duterte is trying to show that he is strong and capable of handling the presidency on his own, without the help of his family. Others believe that Duterte’s statement is a sign of his softer side, and that he is actually concerned about the well-being of his family.

Regardless of how Duterte’s statement is interpreted, it is clear that it has caused a lot of confusion and speculation in the Philippine political arena. The final word on this matter will likely be determined by the outcome of the upcoming presidential elections.
