MANILA, Philippines- President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. did only “bare minimum”. in his first 100 days in office, according to militant groups this Friday.
“What the President says is that his achievement was able to build a government, that is not an achievement. That’s the bare minimum,” according to Bagong Alyansang Makabayan secretary general Renato Reyes Jr. this Friday.
Marcos said this Wednesday that his administration was able to find the “best and brightest” officials to serve the government in his first 100 days as president.
He was asked at the President’s Night organized by the Manila Overseas Press Club (MOPC) what could be considered his accomplishments and things that he would have acted or responded differently.
“Our biggest problem right now is like we’re on a ship with no direction while what we’re on is sinking,” Reyes insisted.
“While they are partying, we are ordinary citizens, suffering. This is not the desired result in the first 100 days and we fear that this will be the goal in the next months,” he continued.
Also, Alliance of Concerned Teachers chairperson Vladimer Quetua said they are saddened that the administration sees the reopening of classes as an “achievement”, and said they have been appealing for a long time.
“We don’t think that just opening classes is enough. The quality of education must be ensured or the deficiency in schools can be lifted… the limit can be given and the condition of the teacher especially in terms of salary, benefits and rights can be given,” added Quetua.
IBON Foundation executive director Sonny Africa announced that the administration failed to present “bold and new initiatives” to revive the economy.
“We did not see it in the first 100 days of President Marcos and most likely, we will not see it in the coming six years of his office,” said Africa.
