Roxas: Duterte should open his medical records to public scrutiny

/ 03:47 PM April 22, 2016

Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas believes Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte should make his medical records, particularly the result of his psychological test, open to public scrutiny so the voters would have an idea about the character of the candidate they are rooting for.

“Lahat ng datos tungkol sa amin ay fair game. Basta totoo. Diba? So kung meron mang ganon (psychological record), bakit hindi? Ang ganon ay para malaman ng kababayan natin kung sino ang mga pinipili nila,” he said in a media briefing in Nueva Ecija on Friday.

Roxas, a former trade and industry secretary, said voters should be protected just like the public are protected by the consumer protection law against fraud and deception.

“Ang isa na minungkahi natin at sinulong natin sa DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) ay ’yung consumer protection. Walang kinaiba ang consumidor sa botante. Kailangan protektado ang botante para alam niya,” said Roxas.

Scrutinizing the presidential aspirants is like assessing a package where the ingredients of a particular product are written, he said.

“Parang, nakasulat kung ano nasa loob ng paketeng ito, diba nakasulat yung asukal, asin, ano mga ingredients, ano mga kabahagi ng binibili nila para alam nila kung ano ang binibili nila. Ganon din, lalo na sa pagpili ng pagka-pangulo,” Roxas explained.

ABS-CBN has made public a psychological report submitted as evidence in the annulment proceedings between Duterte and his former wife Elizabeth Zimmerman. The purported medical report showed that Duterte was diagnosed with “antisocial narcissistic personality disorder,” characterized by “gross indifference, insensitivity and self-centeredness, grandiose sense of self-entitlement and manipulative behaviors,” and “pervasive tendency to demean, humiliate others and violate their rights and feelings.”

Like Roxas, Vice President Jejomar Binay  challenged Duterte, who has topped recent surveys on   presidential candidates, to undergo a psychological test.

Duterte, however, shrugged off the idea and said Binay was lucky he didn’t have his psychological record revealed to the public as it would show, he claimed, that the former Makati mayor was a thief. RC
