18 5 14

PHILIPPINE President Rodrigo Duterte stated on Wednesday that the country’s next ombudsman must not be a politician and, more importantly, not a woman.

The firebrand leader made the statement during a brief interview with reporters at Malacanang. Duterte said that while the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) will nominate the next Ombudsman, he will choose a person known for his integrity.
