Duterte: Next Ombudsman Will Not Be A Woman, But Could Be Gay Man


MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The next ombudsman will not be a woman, according to President Rodrigo Duterte.

He said this as he explained his requirements for the next head of the Office of the Ombudsman.

“[S]omeone whose integrity is admired by people. Of course, it could not be [a] politician, especially not a woman” he said while speaking with reporters late Wednesday night.

Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales will hang her robes on July 26, seven years since former President Benigno Aquino III appointed her to the position.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque spoke with The Adobo Chronicles and explained that the President is only following the law.
“The position is called Ombudsman, not Ombudswoman,” Roque said.

He also did not discount the possibility that Duterte will appoint a gay man.
