Identify all the distinctive achievements of each of the presidents of the third republic up to the present. Manuel RoxasIn 1948, Roxas declared amnesty for those arrested for collaborating with the Japanese during World War II, except for those who had committed violent crimes. Elpidio Quirino His six years as president were marked by notable postwar reconstruction, general economic gains, and increased economic aid from the United States. Basic social problems, however, particularly in the rural areas, remained unsolved, and his administration was tainted by widespread graft and corruption. Ramon Magsaysay As president, he was a close friend and supporter of the United States and a vocal spokesman against communism during the Cold War. He led the foundation of theSoutheast Asia Treaty Organization also known as the Manila Pact of 1954, that aimed to defend South East Asia, South Asia and the Southwestern Pacific from communism. He was also known for his integrity and strength of character. During his term, he made Malacang Palace literally a "house of the people", opening its gates to the public. Carlos Garcia During his administration, he acted on the Bohlen-Serrano Agreement which shortened the lease of the US Bases from 99 years to 25 years and made it renewable after every five years. He also exercised the Filipino First Policy, for which he was known. This policy heavily favored Filipino businessmen over foreign investors. He was also responsible for changes in retail trade which greatly affected the Chinese businessmen in the country. Diosdado Macapagal During his presidency, the Philippines enjoyed prosperity and was the second mostdeveloped country in the Asian region, next only to Japan and ahead of the future tiger economies of Asia such as Singapore, Taiwan, and Korea. Allowed the Philippine peso to float on the free currency exchange market. abolition of tenancy and accompanying land reform program in the Agricultural Land Reform Code of 1963 which underscored his endeavor to fight mass poverty. Ferdinand Marcos During his first term he had made progress in agriculture, industry, and education. Yet his administration was troubled by increasing student demonstrations and violent urban-guerrilla activities. Initially, he had a good record as president and

the Filipinosexpected him to be one of the best. However, conditions changed in later years and his popularity with the people started diminishing. Proclaimed Martial Law. Corazon Aquino Despite the euphoria following the overthrow of the Marcos government, Aquino faced the massive challenge of restoring the nation. She established a revolutionary government under the terms of a provisional "Freedom Constitution", legally establishing the structure of the government pending the adoption of a permanent, democratically-drafted constitution. Fidel Ramos The first few years of his administration (1992-1995) were characterized by economic boom, technological development, political stability and efficient delivery of basic needs to the people. During his administration, Ramos began implementing economic reforms intended to open up the once-closed national economy, encourage private enterprise, invite more foreign and domestic investment, and reduce corruption. Joseph Estrada Idolized by the poor, he campaigned on a combination of policies that are both market-friendly and designed to reduce widespread poverty in a population of 70 million. Gloria Arroyo Arroyo, a practicing economist, has made the economy the focus of her presidency. Early in her presidency, Arroyo implemented a controversial policy of holiday economics, adjusting holidays to form longer weekends with the purpose of boosting domestic tourism and allowing Filipinos more time with their families Benigno Aquino IIISome of the laws that he immediately signed were the banning of the use of siren or "wangwang" in the streets for no serious reason, and the voiding of "midnight appointments" in government positions. He also established the "Truth Commission" to investigate graft and corruption, and abuses of the government of Pres. Gloria Arroyo. 2. base on your analysis above justify who do you think is the best president?

The question is when his credibility sustain the hunger of Juan Dela Cruz for a "Big Change"? We, as a Filipino, the only thing we can do is to support our President. One year is not enough to solve the chained problem of our country. We need to change our self first because admit it we are not law abiding citizen. sabi nga lahat ng malaki nagsisimula sa maliit. We look forward for a better governance. We can do it PNoy and Pinoy. I have to go with Marcos. He's the best we've had and will always be (IMO). He has the traits of what a real leader should be. Too bad he f*cked it all up on the other half of his 20-year rule. Based on accomplishments, he's the only president who: - was able to implement Land Reform in its true sense, therefore achieving selfsufficiency in rice and corn production during those times - focused on agricultural infrastracture (e.g. irrigation) in the major food processing regions in the country, therefore increasing the yield in agricultural products; this resulted in the elimination of rice imports in 1968 - the construction of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (which is the only Nuclear-powered plant in SE Asia) - during the 1972-81 martial law period, tripled the country's road network, doubled the electrification of the country's homes, increased irrigated cropland eight-fold, and achieved rice and corn self-sufficiency - minimum daily wage rates tripled, although inflation, driven by international oil price hikes and exploding U.S. interest rates, more than wiped out these wage increases Ilan lamang ito sa mga nagawa ni Marcos noong panahon ng panunungkulan niya. Ngayon, kung ihahambing natin ang ibang mga presidente ng Pilipinas sa kanya, eh panis silang lahat

There's really no best yet. But I believe that with him as the president, Philippines was better off economically. Yes it was a dictatorship. Yes it was corrupt. But at least we are not the third world country we are now. We were ahead with infrastructures. Peso was not weak. I think that in a country like the Philippines, there has to be fear instilled. Unlike the past few years of democratic government that most officials are corrupt and nothing gets done. They are all just waiting for their pockets to get filled

BEST 1. Ferdinand MARCOS: like it or not, it was during his term that roads throughout the country were improved, and Manila was beautified thoroughly. He jumpstarted the building of Makati, NLEx, SLEx, EDSA, and the Reclamation areas, and he made Filipino culture to be unified into one national culture. 2. Manuel QUEZON: he is the father of the Filipino language. If not for him, we would still be talking in English with other Filipinos who hail from regions other than ours. 3. Fidel RAMOS: during his term, the Philippines was known as Asia's emerging tigers; US bases were dismantled during his term - and the Philippines became fully independent for the first time in about 600 years. 4. Carlos GARCIA: proponent of the Filipino-First policy and the Parity Rights with US was rescinded.

5. Emilio AGUINALDO: proponent of Filipino nationalism. WORST 1. Gloria Macapagal-ARROYO: record-holder in the number of civilians, activists, and journalists killed; heavy graft, corruption, and nepotism in government. 2. Ferdinand MARCOS: poor track record in human rights and did a big deal of corruption. 3. Joseph ESTRADA: first and only president of the Philippines who have been impeached by the Court; his term was also full of corruption. 4. Ramon MAGSAYSAY: during his term, the Philippines was virtually ruled by CIA Agent Edward Landsdale; his blind nationalism led to the mass exodus of thousands of Spaniards and Chinese from the Philippines. 5. Sergio OSMENA: did nothing much for the country.

Let's start off by simply saying that Former Pres. Ferdinand Marcos was the best Philippine president because he made the Philippines world class during his time...He declared Martial Law for the people of the Philippines,so that they would be better people than what the Filipinos are now..... Report this Argument

Con This topic is very much of ones own opinion,.. However, I will disagree and provide several very constructive arguments that go against my opponents claim. Ferdiand Marcos was ousted by his own people,.. They did like being under martial law! They booted him out in 1986. That is a pretty strong case for backing the belief that he was not considered the best at all. Ramon Magsaysay was perhaps one of the most popular and heroic,.. He was best known for successfully defeating the communist led Hukbalahap (Huk) Movement. Idol of the masses, champion of democracy, and freedom fighter. Carlos Garcia was admired by his people as well!

He was famous for his austerity program and policy. He maintained the strong tradition ties with the United States and sought closer relation with non-communist Asian countries. Fidel Ramos, a recent president. As head of the State, his administration centerpiece program is the Philippines 2000, which aimed to uplift the Philippines as a newly industrialized country by the year 2000. These are a few presidents that were much more popular, and provided much better and balanced leadership than Ferdinand Marcos.
