Ang mga datu ay naging cabeza de barangay at sila ay naging bahagi ng principalía.

Speech of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during the Sulong Pilipinas: Local Governance Series: LGU Consultations on Peace and Order and Social Development with Luzon local officials Delivered at Mayuree Grand Ballroom, Dusit Thani Hotel, Makati City | 4 October 2016 Salamat po. Alam natin ho lahat ang problema sa Pilipinas and in my generation, ito ang pinaka-mabigat. I was doing trial work for almost eight years and I became an OIC vice mayor, eventually to run in 1988 elections. Huwag ka matakot, sabihin mo: P***** i** mo, papatayin kita. And so with three million, hindi ko binilang ‘yung akin eh.

May I address everybody, my co-workers in government, ladies and gentlemen. Before I became mayor, I was a prosecutor in Davao City. Or if you, if there is anyone who disagrees, give me the provision of law. By the end of the year, it’s going to hit to another million. And 700 was the last clear count, the newspaper stopped. I do not know if because you know my father was a Cabinet member of President Marcos during the first term of his presidency.
I’ve nowhere to go but to retire and perhaps in the fullness of God’s time, I die early so that I can rest. I’d like to just give you a resumé of myself para you’d know where I come from. There is no law at all which says I cannot threaten criminals, either as mayor or President.

Sa panahon ng mga Espanyol o Kastila, ang mga iba't-ibang barangay ay pinagsamahan upang makabuo ng mga bayan at lungsod.All throughout, it would be something like 40 years in the government service. Whoever told you I was, I’m applying to be a statesman? And it was only Ebarle and my father who stood by Marcos. ‘Nong piskal ho ako and because that was near, about the time shabu was making its entrance in the social scene. Ang pagkaalam ko tumakbo ako ng Presidente, ordinaryo lang ako na tao. Dumating dito sa, hindi ko nga ma– sa totoo lang, just to illustrate to you how destiny plays us. That is why when he won, my father was one of the Cabinet members of Marcos. Kabilang dito ang 1951 Mutual Defense Treaty, 1998 Visiting Forces Agreement, 2001 Mutual Logistics and Support Agreement, 2006 Security Engagement Board Agreement, at ang pinakabagong dagdag sa koleksiyon, ang 2015 Enhanced Defense Cooperative Agreement.Pinangangatawanan ng Korte Suprema bilang constitutional ang mga kasunduang ito, kahit pa malinaw sa mga kritiko na nilalabag nito ang soberanya ng bansa, at nagbibigay-daan para lalong mangialam at manghimasok ang US sa mga internal na usapin. Nasa ikatlong linggo na ng armadong labanan sa pagitan ng Armed Forces of the Philippines at Maute/Abu Sayyaf Group nang may namataang U. P3 Orion Surveillance aircraft na umaaligid sa Marawi City noong Hunyo 9.
