It's time next RP President came from Visayas, Mindanao
Friday, July 24 2015

Of the 15 Presidents who have served the Filipino people, including the incumbent Benigno Aquino, only three came from the Visayas - Sergio Osmena of Cebu (Aug. 1, 1944-May 28, 1948); Carlos P. Garcia of Bohol (March 18, 1957-December 30, 1961; and) Manuel Roxas of Roxas City, Capiz(May 28, 1946-April 15, 1948). They also had shortest stint.

President Ferdinand Marcos from Sarah Ilocos Norte (Luzon) was the longest in power. He occupied the post for more than 20 years.

No doubt, then, that progress and development were concentrated mostly in Luzon. Fort each President, bias toward their hometown or region, is a given.

This time, why don’t we pick our President from the Visayas and Mindanao? We have two emerging, aspiring leaders in the next 2016 election - Mar Roxas ll of Roxas City, Capiz and Rodrigo Duterte of Davao City. They are also among the incorruptible.
