  • President Rodrigo Duterte scratches his head as he addresses Philippine Marines in suburban Taguig City east of Manila, Philippines, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016. Duterte used an expletive to warn key ally Barack Obama not to lecture him on human rights and, in another impromptu speech, declared a dramatic policy change such as removing US counterterrorism forces out of his country's volatile south. Impassioned speeches by Duterte about the United States, the European Union and the United Nations have repeatedly led his government to issue clarifications, although he had been on the job less than three months.

President Duterte announced his intent to end the annual exercises between the Philippines and its longtime ally, the United States. What's your say?

The House of Representatives agreed to grant immunity to witnesses, who are also convicted inmates at the Bilibid, to possible additional charges in connection with their testimonies at the inquiry into the drug trade inside the national penitentiary. Do you agree with this move?

President Rodrigo Duterte recently told Indonesian President Joko Widodo that he respects Indonesia's judicial processes in dealing with the case of Filipino worker Mary Jane Veloso, accused of drug trafficking years ago. Should the Philippines stop trying to have Veloso spared from execution?

President Rodrigo Duterte said the Philippines can temporarily set aside the ruling by the tribunal under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea favoring the Philippines in its case against China. The president's statement comes as the two countries are trying to restart negotiations over the longstanding maritime row. What's your say? Vote!

Should this year's US-Philippines military exercises be the last?
Do you agree with the grant of immunity for convicts in Bilibid probe?
Should the Philippines leave Veloso's fate to Indonesia?
Do you agree with the declaration of a state of lawlessness?
Should the Philippines temporarily set aside sea ruling in initiating talks with China?
