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 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.

2 Ferdinand E. Marcos, Sr.

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

The father of corruption in the Philippines. All those Marcos apologists think that Martial Law was a "golden age" in history, not noticing how he put the whole country in debt, violated freedom of expression, stealing at least $5 billion and started the decline of the country.

He brought one of the darkest ages in the Philippine History. Sadly, few people has remembered that because presently millenials has wrongfully recognized him as the best president.

Thanks to this dictator for turning the Philippines into a third world country. Shame on this man!

3 Rodrigo Duterte Rodrigo "Rody" Roa Duterte, also known by the nickname Digong, is a Filipino lawyer and politician of Visayan descent who is the President-elect of the Philippines after topping the official Congressional canvass for the 2016 election.

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 1Trillion 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)"

Double standard, his allies can do whatever they want. Lives in an old world where where he thinks masochism and threats proves his masculinity. Thinks Dirty Harry is still cool.

- Claimed that he is a defender of human life, whilst he murders innocent citizens and protects those who pervert human rights of Filipinos.
- Claims that he wants to kill druglords. His own son was accused but was not put on trial. No druglords have been killed, while many poor Filipinos were killed because of the war on drugs.

He Killed 5,000 people. He called the Pope a son of prostitute, he Joked About raping a woman. He called the former U.S. Ambassador a Gay son of a prostitute. His son has been suspected to be a syndicate. He curses the U.N. and E.U.. He si praising Marcos, Russia and, China

4 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.

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.

Illegal president of the Philippines.

The worst President in the Phillipines she declares democracy to result of undicipline.

Not corrupt, but lacks leadership.

5 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.

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.

Most stupid president ever.

6 Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr.

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.

Pork barrel senator. Corrupt

7 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.

Why did he even became the president of the Philippines?

8 Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is a politician who served as the 14th President of the Philippines from 2001 until 2010, as the 10th Vice President of the Philippines from 1998 to 2001, and as member of the House of Representatives representing the 2nd District of Pampanga since 2010. She was the country's ...read more.

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.

She deserves the first rank.

Corrupt to the core...

9 Jejomar C. Binay, Sr.

Vice President Jejomar Binay has run a 30-year political dynasty in Makati City. He has multiple corruption charges in both the locality and on the national level, and has a lot of ill-gotten wealth.

10 Emilio Aguinaldo Emilio F. Aguinaldo (March 22, 1869 – February 6, 1964) was a Filipino revolutionary, politician, and a military leader who is officially recognized as the first and the youngest President of the Philippines and first president of a constitutional republic in Asia. He led Philippine forces first against ...read more.

Should be on top 10. He was considered as one of the traitors of the history. He was responsible for the deaths of Andres Bonifacio and Gen. Antonio Luna.

The Contenders
11 Imelda Marcos

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.

First lady of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Corrupt and murderer.

The other half of the conjugal Marcos dictatorship...no remorae until now...

Why is she even here?

12 Cynthia Villar

A land grabber. Anti-poor senator who authored the Rice Tarrification Law, which made the poor filipino farmers suffer.

The woman behind the Rice Tarrification Law that caused the sufferings of the local rice farmers.

13 Manny Pacquiao Emmanuel Dapidran Pacquiao is a Filipino professional boxer and politician, currently serving as a Senator of the Philippines. He currently ranks #4 in BoxRec's ranking of the greatest pound for pound boxers of all time.

Fake, usurper, bigot, hypocrite and false prophet who banks on the poor and the gullible filipinos. 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.
He would always divert to the bible and to God just so he can keep a conversation going. But all are just superficial and petty.
He had never helped the poor except for posterity and for media milage.
His own constituents in his hometown in General Santos City despise him and shunned him.
He has billions of tax fraud cases and is a known womanizer and drug lord

Being rich doesn't make you a good leader.

14 Juan Ponce Enrile Juan Ponce Enrile Sr. is a Filipino politician and lawyer. He was a protégé of President Ferdinand Marcos, and served as Justice Secretary and then Defense Minister under the Marcos regime.

Marcos' former defense minister. Responsible for human rights violations under martial law. A corrupt politician.

Responsible for deaths in Ormoc by deforestation and selling the woods toi Japan.

15 Andal Ampatuan, Jr.

HE must be on the top list due to Maguindanao massacre... Next is Estrada for the plunder case stealing the Filipino moneys.

He is the example of a person that thinks he is God.

16 Bong Go

Duterte's puppet. An incompetent senator who won only because he's an ally of duterte. Epal.

17 Jejomar Erwin Binay, Jr.

The son of Vice President Jejomar Binay, and the mayor of Makati City who has been suspended from office due to plunder and anomalous projects.

18 Tito Sotto

One of the worst senators of 2010's era. He is planning to change the last lyrics of our national anthem.

Unflinching Plagiarism plus many more dirty tricks and skeleton in the closet.

19 Bato dela Rosa

Duterte's puppet. Retired police chief that murdered thousands of filipinos under the fake drug war.

Loves the limelight. Mr Second the motion.

20 Janet Napoles

The devil's advocate.

21 Leni Robredo
22 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.

23 Leila de Lima
24 Aldrin San Pedro

Now here it goes. The Ferdinand Marcos of Muntinlupa City. I believe I placed him too high on the list, but he needs to get attention. The only reason why his ghost projects and plunder cases don't get into much media attention is because of him lying in public or paying the media to not put his cases on the news. The only difference between him and Marcos is that he hasn't murdered anyone. It's a shame that he still has supporters, knowing how he stole taxpayers' money and put the whole city in debt by an equivalent of at least $43 billion (2 billion Philippine Pesos).
