MANILA, OCTOBER 4 (ANSA) – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has announced that he will retire from politics after the end of his term in office next year. After stating that he would run as the country’s deputy leader in the May 2022 elections because he could not run for president again, the 76-year-old backed down.

“The prevailing feeling among Filipinos is that I am the wrong person and that being elected would be a violation of the Constitution and the abolition of the law and the spirit of the Constitution. Therefore, I am announcing my retirement from politics, ”said Duterte.

However, the president’s speech has not been corroborated by opinion polls, which show that he is almost as popular as when he was elected in 2016.

According to local media reports, the decision was prompted by the nomination of her daughter Sarah Duterte-Carpio. Officially, the 43-year-old politician announced only that she would run for mayor of Davao, but it is possible that she will run for president.

His name is even indicated in polls as the leader of the pre-election race.

If elected, Duterte will receive special protection, and he will have to answer numerous lawsuits – on national and international territory – due to the deaths caused by his “war on human trafficking”.

On September 15, inclusive, the International Criminal Court (ICC) authorized an investigation into this “war on drugs” and thousands of murders committed during this period.

Elected under the promise of harsh reprisals against criminal organizations, especially the drug trade, Duterte ordered the murder of all those accused of the crime, even during military operations. However, several organizations said that the president, under the guise of prosecuting criminals, had ordered the assassination of political opponents.

During his years in government, Duterte was known for his bad language against world leaders, sexist speeches and an extremist worldview. Despite the desire to show simplicity, the current president of the Philippines comes from a wealthy family that has always made a living from politics – his father was the governor of Davao province.

But, in addition to drawing attention to his speeches, the president has created a warlike climate and a constant rise in authoritarianism, ordering the arrest of even journalists who spoke about crimes in his government.

Other Candidates – On the 1st, the Philippine Election Commission began accepting candidates for elections in May 2022.

Among the first to apply for registration are former boxer Manny Pacquiao and former actor and current Mayor of Manila, Francisco Domagoso. One of Duterte’s allies, former police chief Panfilo Laxon, also presented his candidacy.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021

The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.
