As the new salary of President Rodrigo Duterte increased from P165,752 to P222,278. His critics also were busy dealing with the issue.
But it appeared that the pay hike was done by former President Benigno 'Noynoy' Aquino III.
According to the report, the salary increased is under the Executive Order No. 201 of Aquino last February 19, 2016.
Sass Rogando Sasot reacted to the new tirades of Duterte critics against the president.
She said it was Noynoy who raised the salary but it only take effect to the next president.
O, bagong issue nila: Mas mataas daw ang sahod ni Duterte kay Aquino. Mga burikat, Aquino raised the salary of the president. Pero ang rule eh salary increases take effect in the next admin. Hwag kayong tumanga.
Also, it is said that among officials, Duterte will have the highest salary increase equivalent to Grade 33.
Meanwhile, followers of Sasot also shared their thoughts about the issue. Some of them mocked Aquino and criticized the yellow party.
Netizen Laurie Leslie Lee Tan said, "akala kasi niPNoy nung nilagdaan niya yun, mapupunta kay Mar Roxas yung inapprove niya na salary increase."
Netizen Say Jovita said, "andaming tangang follower nila ang naniniwala dyan sa mga tanga ring admins ng yellowtards pages hahaha kinakalat pa tlaga nila yan eh samantalang ung leader nilang isip bata pala me akda."
While, Gee Balajadia said,"Kulang na kulang pa yan actually! He must have the highest pay in the land! Kung maka trabaho si Tay Digong parang walang bukas. E sa saksakan ng baho at katiwalian ng sistema ba naman...
We need a leader like him in the next 12 years and another 12 years para hayahay ang Pinas!
