President Duterte included in Forbes World's Most Powerful People 2016


There are approximately 7.4 billion humans on planet Earth, but only a modest bunch of men and women make the world turn. Forbes Magazine on Wednesday uncovered its annual ranking of the "Most Powerful People in the World."

Indeed, even before he was sworn into office, President Duterte was making out as truly newsworthy because of his real open talking style and his dangerous war on medications.

Fourth place went to China's President Xi Jinping, while the fifth spot on the list went to Pope Francis. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was also number 10 on the list.



And placing in the seventeenth spot is the Philippine President Rodrigo "Roa" Duterte. He was the only Filipino who made it to the list this year.

Even before he was sworn into office, President Duterte was making international headlines due to his candid public speaking style and his deadly war on drugs.

Duterte announced a "separation" from a century-long strategic alliance with United States, and plans to realign the Philippines towards China. “Duterte’s tendency to say what he thinks, no matter how raw, also keeps him in the headlines” Forbes Magazine wrote.

Forbes said it assesses the influence of "hundreds of candidates from various walks of life all around the globe" as it compiles its annual list, which this year has on it 74 powerful movers and shakers.
