President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is one of the most talked-about president in Philippine history. He is the first president to come from Mindanao and several controversies surrounded him from being a foul-mouthed character, iron fist ruling, to alleged extrajudicial killings.

But despite these controversies, and criticism from his political foes, he performed well during his first year as leader of Philippines. He proved to be a man of his words.

Here is a list of some of the notable things achieved by the Duterte administration for his first year:

What some senators have to say

While these achievements show the Duterte administration’s good performance, expressions of disappointment and criticism were thrown from opposition. Among them are Senators Antonio Trillanes IV, Risa Hontiveros, and Liela De Lima.

Senator Hontiveros labeled President Duterte’s presidency as ‘dangerous year to be a woman’ and ‘marked by a colossal human rights crisis.’

She said that 2017 ‘is a year of national grieving’ because of the alleged extrajudicial killings committed by the current administration against criminals.

In addition, Senator Leila De Lima labeled President Duterte’s first year in office as full of lies and fake news.

Isang taong mga kasinungalingan. Isang taong panggigipit. Isang taong pagmumura at pambabastos. Isang taong mga pangakong napako. Lalo na yung mga kasinungalingan. Fake cases. Lalo na itong mga paratang sa akin. Fake cases, fake news,” she said.

Translation: A year of lies. A year of pressure. A year of invective and harrasment. A year of unfulfilled promises. Especially the lies. Fake cases. Especially these allegations against me. Fake cases, fake news.

Recently, Senator Trillanes also thrown critical remarks to the administration in a BBC Hardtalk interview with Stephen Sackur.

Nevertheless, others, like Senate President Koko Pimentel and Senator Tito Sotto gave the president a high grade of 8.5/10 and 8/10, respectively.
