President Duterte was finally able to thank US President Joe Biden for America’s donations of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines to the Philippines, and this was just among the many developments in the twin Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) which is being held in Brunei Darrusalam.

With the country’s coronavirus disease (COVID-19) problem turning for the better, focus shifts to the political scene with all presidential candidates slugging it out in a mad contest leading to the May 2022 polls.

Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) presidential bet Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa puts Vice President Leni Robredo to task for her advice to voters to pocket bribes and still vote according to conscience, saying that vote-buying was illegal, and voting for a candidate other than agreed upon was tantamount to estafa.

These are among the top stories this Thursday morning, October 28, 2021.
