Top 10 Worst Politicians in the Philippines

The Philippines has been ranked as one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Who are the top picks?
The Top Ten
1 Corazon Aquino Corazon Aquino Maria Corazon "Cory" Sumulong Aquino, popularly known as Cory Aquino, was a Filipina politician who was the 11th President of the Philippines, the first woman to hold that office and the first female president in Asia.

Didn't even have any background in politics, what more of leading a whole country? And if it wasn't worse than that, she used the "democracy card" to negate the incompetency of her and her allies. She does not deserve to be commemorated nor be included in the 500 peso bill. Her husband was more sensible, and talking about her HUSBAND, she used the demise of Benigno Aquino Sr. as FUEL to the FIRE that has been burning the Philippines since the communist insurgency broke out. She deserves the Top 1 in this list. So much for being the first female president of the Philippines.

Housewife politician. Increased the debt from 478 billion pesos to 972 billion pesos in just 6 years with no infrastructures built. Mendiola massacre. Sold Meralco, Maynilad and Manila Water to the Lopezes.

The true dictator, and NPA communist protector.
Mother of all liars, the heart is full of hatred. Jealous.
Most worst President. Murderer

The lack of diplomacy and leadership skills, and the failure of sustaining the economic growth the Philippines had before her term made her a horrible president.

2 Benigno Aquino III Benigno Aquino III Benigno Simeon "Noynoy" Cojuangco Aquino III (born February 8, 1960) is a Filipino politician who served as the 15th President of the Philippines from 2010 until 2016.

Rode the people's sentiments on the death of his mother, but was generally inept and incompetent in government.

He never apologize to the government of Hong Kong after the Manila hostage crisis in 2010.

Philippines changed into a Third World Country and the reason of this is because of the Aquinos.

Stupid President, Murderer, and no heart for the poor. protector of communists.
The most worst president and dictator.

3 Jose "Peping" Cojuangco

One of the worst politicians in the Philippines. He is attempting to overthrow his nephew, Noynoy Aquino during his nephew's term.

I don't know what to say about this man.

4 Ferdinand E. Marcos, Sr. Ferdinand E. Marcos, Sr.

He is the worst president the Philippines has ever had the misfortune to see! Two years of 50% inflation is a record-breaking achievement! Along with his wife, Imelda, who has coerced him into doing things her way, he was a participant in the greatest conjugal government theft the world has ever seen, which took place in the United States. Historical revisionism has long governed the nation, and now, aided by paid social media trolls and vloggers, they are preparing to retake control of the country in order to fulfill Imelda's goal of returning to Malacanang once again.

Before his term, the culture of violence, killings, black political propaganda, human rights abuses, abuse of power, rebellion and insurgency were not already existing and the life before him was so very peaceful and the politics and government were stable. Until he occupied the highest seat in government, all of the cultures above-mentioned were started by him and he made those negative culture as his an excuse in order for him to impose martial law nationally as to extend his power. The culture of corruption was discreet before his time but he made the corruption in government as culture. He has no respect in democracy and he made the Philippines as silent Communist state alike. When the country gets into chaos and doomed, the peaceful popular revolt happened in order to oust him in power.

After they exiled into Guam and Hawaii, the Philippines was already fallen down and experienced the national crisis due to the political instability he made and his economic mismanagement. ...more

His dark legacy still continues on as his son, who refuses to admit the wrongdoings of his father's regime, runs for PRESIDENT. Please save the Philippines from these THIEVES!

Wasn't even able to control people around him from plundering the national coffers. May have even escaped with some of it too.

5 Jinggoy Estrada

All his guts come from being A FORTUNATE SON and no more. It was from him that all senators exists for the whims of the President (from their political party). Let their staff do their work.

There was nothing good in his term. It was his fault the EDSA People Power Revolution 2 was enforced.

All he think is money he can get from the government.

Never heard of any laws that benefitted Filipinos that he was an author of or he co-authored.

6 Rodrigo Duterte Rodrigo Duterte Rodrigo "Rody" Roa Duterte, also known by the nickname Digong, is a Filipino lawyer and politician of Visayan descent who served as President of The Philippines from 2016 until 2022.

China's lapdog. Made the pandemic 10x worse due to his negligence and him not listening to health experts, enabled the police force to power trip, made the country the sick man of asia once again, and worst of all this senile bastard promoted a culture of degeneracy among Filipinos.

Ferdinand Marcos wannabe. His main racket was to borrow so much money internationally and pretend that the regular government projects were achievement of such loans.

All the while he has accumulated billions in his secret bank accounts.

Has also sold most of the Philippines to China.

Worst president since Erap. Was also a good friend of Donald Trump. Created the idea that the Marcos era was a "golden age" that the late dictator's son Bongbong Marcos must restore when he succeeds Duterte as President.

Cry Baby, Keeps on blaming previous admin to cover up his failure as a leader of a country. Exchanging our sovereign for vaccines and almost 1 Trillion Debt, that we didn't know where it went, because every weekly briefing with the press he keeps on telling "Wala tayong pera (We don't have money)"

7 Joseph Estrada Joseph Estrada Joseph "Erap" Ejercito Estrada is a Filipino politician who served as the 13th President of the Philippines from 1998 to 2001 and as the 9th Vice President of the Philippines from 1992 to 1998. He has currently been Mayor of the City of Manila, the country's capital, since 2013.

Also known as ERAP, and also stole money from the people with plunder cases. He is the second Ferdinand Marcos, and was ousted through a people power revolution, just like what happened to Marcos.

One of the Most Corrupt Politician in the Philippines and the most Lazy President.

Why did he even became the president of the Philippines?

A gambler, womanizer, and a shady character as a president.

She was the country's ...read more.

This tiny lady is as nasty as it gets. She is one of THE MOST CORRUPT presidents due to the intelligence of her husband of how to pilfer government funds. Mostly kickbacks and shady government deals.

She may have initiated infrastructure projects, but there is no doubt that she is one of the most corrupt presidents of the Philippines, with the most corrupt government officials being involved with multiple scams.

One of the most controversial "Hello Garci" scandal involved her, being million votes ahead of FPJ in the 2004 Presidential Elections, there are many protests against her, manier than Noynoy and Digong. And I think that neck brace worn by her isn't true.

One of the Greatest Corrupt and Greatest Liar in the World.

9 Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr.

The moron of the senate. Always has been a moron and always will be. He knows that people are laughing at him because everyone knows that he is a thief. But he still persists running after government position banking on the unintelligent Filipinos that still sees him as an actor.

Had the guts to dance "Budots" without even promising the people his advocacies and laws. Surprisingly, he will have a seat in the Senate this 2019, hoping that it is an electric seat.

This man is shameless. After the P1B PDAF Scam, he is still motivated to run for Senator. How did this man get free anyway?

He is the most prominent senator involved in the Pork Barrel Scam.

The BLABBERING LUNATIC. A certified nutjob. She thinks that their reign as dictators were heroic and she thinks that her time dressing and living lavishly was good for the image of the country hence she aims to live the old life once again.

Used public funds to pay for her travels. Hid wealth along with children after the death of their patriarch Ferdinand. Still pretending to not know anything about what happened during her husband's reign. Also, believes that aliens talk to her.

He keeps on making false promises to the filipino masses, making them believe that he will truly serve the nation, but has not made a single law, or can't even keep a decent political and legal discussion.
