Taiwan Politician Uses Duterte’s Photo For His “Value life, say no to drugs” Campaign



It is not unknown to people that President Rodrigo Duterte has a “rockstar” status in other countries.
Despite the way his fellow Filipinos and political rivals are criticizing him for his alliance with China, a country who is a direct rival of China showed support for him.

Campaign pull

In fact, one politician in Taiwan decided to use the photo of President Duterte to campaign for his “No to drugs” aim.

When translated, the ad says “Value life, say no to drugs”.

A Filipino in Taiwan emphasized the importance of the photos of the president in ads in Taiwan.


She said that this only shows that Duterte is not only effective in the Philippines, but in the other parts of the world too. Even in Taiwan who is a rival of China.


This image is significant in more ways than one. First. The world is now accepting and admiring how our president is handling the drug problem, so much so that politicians from other countries are using PRRD’s image to get votes. Hindi lang siya effective sa Pilipinas, it seems even sa Taiwan.
The second and more important angle here is that PRRD’s image is being used positively in Taiwan – a country that is technically considered a rebel province by China. You would expect them to ridicule PRRD who is known to be close to the mainland government. Apparently there are those in the rebel state that thinks it is actually worthwhile to use the image of a character closely linked to that of their enemy – China. This is indeed a testament to the popularity and charisma of this old mayor from the province.



Now, if there are those who believe that President Duterte is effective in other countries, what more in ours. Where we were able to see progress in the little time that he had since he started to assume office.

Doesn’t this make you proud as a Filipino?
