In “Wanted: President,” the long-time mayor faces veteran anchor Mel Tiangco as she questions him about his alleged human rights’ abuses and the so-called Davao Death Squad. When Tiangco asks Duterte about how he intends to rid the country of drugs, crime and corruption in six months, Duterte replies, “It could be bloody.”

“Wanted: President” ngayong 2016

Ibinabalik ng GMA News and Public Affairs ang “Wanted: President.”

Head researcher ang unang trabaho ko sa GMA Network. Para ito sa mga programang “Bio-Data,” “Paninindigan,” at “Wanted: President” noong 2004. Sa “Bio-Data,” kinilala at kinilatis ang mga tumatakbong pangulo at pangalawang pangulo ng bansa. Sa Paninindigan, inalam ang kanilang posisyon sa iba’t ibang isyu. Sa “Wanted: President” naman, tinalakay ang mga tungkulin, pananagutan, at pribelihiyong kaakibat ng pagiging Pangulo ng Pilipinas.

Memorable para sa akin ang mga panahong iyon. Sinaliksik at binalikan namin ang mga naisulat na tungkol sa mga kandidato. In-stalk namin sila. Na-interview ko si FPJ at si Luli Arroyo. Na-meet namin si Ka Roger at ilang pulang mandirigma. Nakabisita kami sa Malacañang at napasok ang ilang silid doon sa tulong ni Manolo Quezon.

Ngayong taon, ibininabalik ng GMA News and Public Affairs ang “Wanted: President.” This time, isa itong serye ng one-on-one interviews sa mga nangungunang kandidato sa pagkapangulo.
