With only three years remaining for the Duterte administration to actualize their promises, Ateneo de Davao University political analyst presented possible president-vice president tandems in the 2022 national elections during the “Comprehensive Review on the First 100 days of Elected Local and National Government Officials.”

Former Political and History Department Chair Ramon Beleno III revealed nine potential partners based on their current performance and media presence who may or may not attract the support of the majority in upcoming elections.

These include current Vice Pres. Leni Robredo-Sen. Ping Lacson, Leni-former Senator Antonio Trillanes, Leni-Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, Lacson-Sen. Grace Poe, Lacson-Sen. Manny Pacquiao, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Pacquiao, Pacquiao-Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno, Duterte-House Speaker Alan Cayetano, and Duterte-Moreno.

With this, the Blue Vote director explained that one of the main factors that make a successful president-vice president alliance is the representation of Luzon and Mindanao between the candidates.

“For the first time winners, first few months to establish their executive policies and legislative agenda, ” he said, indicating that three years for an elected official’s term is not enough.

He also presented the projects and policies during the first half of the Duterte administration and the issues that arose in his term such as the infamous drug war, alleged corruption, budget cut, and the dispute on the West Philippine Sea.

“Disasters have also changed the landscape of our politics especially if yung administration can’t cope up with the expectations of the locals,” he said.

He also encouraged the students to “make proper decisions based on right information” and engage in political issues.

Aside from that, Samahan ng mga Mag-aaral ng Agham Pampulitika (SAMAPULA) Internal Vice Pres. Alvin Almonte presented a comprehensive report on the winners of the 2019 midterm elections and the issues of local politicians and dynasties.
