MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is reporting that there are over 34 million single individuals in the country as of 2015. This number accounts for 44% of the total population ten years old and above.

The PSA said that of the total single population, males account for 54.1% which results in a ratio of 118 males for every 100 females.

We asked The Adobo Chronicles statistics experts to analyze the PSA Census report, and here is what they came up with:

Duterte Says Daughter Sara not Running For President, same thing he said about himself in 2015

DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao City Bureau) – Never mind the supposedly misogynistic comment about women not fit for the Presidency, but do you believe Rodrigo Duterte when he says his daughter Sara is not running to succeed him in 2022?

As they say, history repeats itself.

Listen to Duterte then as he announced that he wasn’t running for President in 2016, nor was interested in doing so.

On A Woman President: Duterte Says He Was Misquoted

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Rodrigo Duterte is in hot water after he commented that women are not fit for the Presidency. He made the statement as he denied speculation that his daughter Sara is running in 2022 to succeed him.

Many women and advocates criticized the President, tagging his statement as misogynistic.

But Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that Duterte was misquoted, and that Duterte did not say “Hindi ito pambabae” (it’s not for women). What the President said, according to Roque was “Hindi ito pambababae” (It’s not about womanizing).

Roque said that the context of his statement had something to do with past Presidents who have been known to be womanizers or were romantically linked to women other than their First Ladies.

Now that’s clear.
