[PODCAST] Seat of Power: Jess Dureza on how Duterte leads the Cabinet
A former Cabinet member and Duterte's longtime friend talks about how the President has changed over his five years in power

Five years as the country’s most powerful man should change you, right?

If there’s anyone who should know about Rodrigo Duterte’s leadership style as president, it should be a Cabinet member.

The Cabinet is a group of the President’s most trusted men and women, put in charge of all aspects of governing the country – from transportation management, to the national budget, to defense and security.

Duterte meets with his Cabinet every month, and it’s through them that he implements his policies.

Rappler reporter Pia Ranada speaks to a former Cabinet member and longtime friend of Duterte’s, Jesus Dureza, for insights into the President’s leadership and governance style.

Seat of Power is Rappler’s political podcast about the Philippine presidency.
