Duterte Dynasty - Ghost of Marcos Past

The Philippines has, for the past three decades, been deeply entrenched in political dynasties, embodied in the likes of Ferdinand Marcos, Beningo Aquino III, and Gloria Arroyo. A nation’s frustration with establishment politics, and the emergence of a politician vowing to relieve it - has culminated in the form of Rodrigo Duterte’s presidency.

Duterte positions himself as an anti-establishment figure and a new breed of politician. We explore if he really is revolutionary, or just another version of the Philippines’ political dynasties.

This is a report by Wang Junmey and Keith Kam.
