Duterte Is Turning Philippines Into A More Corrupt And Less Democratic State

The Philippines is getting a more corrupt and less democratic state under President Rodrigo Duterte. That's according to recent rankings published by international agencies.

The Philippines is the 113 least corrupt nation out of 180 countries, according to the 2019 Corruption Perceptions Index reported by Transparency International. That's 14 notches below the 2018 ranking and 18 down from 2015 before Duterte becomes President!

Meanwhile, the Philippines slid down one notch in the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Democracy Index for 2019, to 54th place.

That's on top of two notches it slid in 2018.

Rising corruption means that President Duterte's anti-corruption rhetoric that helped him grow in power was just that — rhetoric. Meanwhile, his death squads and attacks on media have undermined the country's democratic institutions, without helping the Philippines in the corruption front.

For my DDS 'friends" who cannot understand why it's bad that the rating went down:

Bumaba ang rating nya: ibig sabihin mas malayo sya sa top 10...
Number 1 sa listahan ay pinaka magandang bansa, then number 2... number 3... hangang number 180 ang pinaka corrupt. Pilipinas ay # 113. Noon 2015 #95 ang Pilipinas.
