Pres. Duterte's Morning Show on TV: The People's Direct Line for Complaints


During the mayoralty of now-President Rody Duterte in Davao City, the people of the city was used to listen to his public affairs program and now as President he wanted to share his success in Davao to the entire Philippines.


Pres. Rody Duterte announced during the Banana Congress in Davao City that he would allot an hour-long morning show on national TV which can be used by the Filipino public who wants to air their complaints against various government services.

During the President's speech he was quoted as saying "Now there is a Malacanang TV, PTV4, so may program ako dyan, I'll give about, every morning an hour," he said.

Pres. Duterte added further that "Lahat ng Filipino na nakatikim ng, whether it’s in the permit sa office of the mayor, or an electrical clearance or way of right already paid but unimplemented, i-text mo na lang. Your name, the government official, do not add your name," he added.

According to the 71-year-old Pres. Rody Duterte the move is not new to him because he had a similar service-oriented program in Davao City dubbed "Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa," a radio program in Davao City.

During the past few weeks of the Duterte administration, the idea of mounting a TV program and publishing a tabloid was already raised in June by Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Chief Martin Andanar.

During Duterte's announcement he reiterated that it should not take too long for the public to process documents in government agencies and if there's corruption in government, Filipinos could now directly report it to the President himself.
