Corrida à sucessão de Duterte nas Filipinas

By Jordi Bou

May 9, 2022 - Um pugilista de fama mundial, um ator e o filho de um antigo ditador estão entre os principais candidatos à substituição do autoritário Rodrigo Duterte como presidente das Filipinas.

More than 35 years after the country emerged from his father’s dictatorship, polls suggest Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is heading towards a landslide victory in the May 9 elections.

Boosted by a massive social media campaign and a formidable alliance with vice-presidential candidate Sara Duterte-Carpio, daughter of outgoing president, Marcos Jr. has vowed to “unify the country”.

Other candidates to replace Duterte are Leni Robredo, vice-president and only female candidate, former actor and city mayor Francisco Domagoso – known by his screen name Isko Moreno – and retired boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao.

The stakes for the Philippines could not be higher. Once one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia, the country has been battered by the pandemic.
