The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
The votes that have been reflected in the COMELEC Transparency Servers and reported in real time by various media outfits and citizen watchdogs seem to show one thing—a landslide victory for the tandem of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos and Mayor Sara Duterte.

The robust 8.3 percent economic growth in the first quarter of 2022 is giving presumptive President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. a solid head start. He is not inheriting a weak economy. Rather, he is receiving a strong one—in fact the fastest-growing economy in East Asia—from outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte.

Now, we are done with the battle of platforms, the war of words, the conflict in the airwaves and the many, many scuffles on social media. It is not an exaggeration to say that this campaign has been very divisive.
