Well, how much does a President of the Philippines makes per month? according to my research, here a line quoted from http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_much_is_the_salary_of_the_Philippines_president
“Answer Currently, the Philippine Republic President is receiving Php60,000.00 (about USD1,333.33 at Php45.00 to 1 USD exchange rate) monthly. This is how much I pay for a mid-senior Developer/Programmer (PHP/Java) monthly. If compared to the President of the United States, as of 2001, the US President’s salary is about USD400,000.00 annually – or almost 3,000% higher than his Filipino counterpart.
Executive Order 611 authorises a 10% increase on the salary of government employees including the President of the Republic of the Philippines. EO 611 amends Republic Act 6758, and provides a monthly salary for Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo of Php 63,525.
If you’re interested to know the salary of the vice president, the speaker of the House, etc, may I suggest matching the job titles within RA 6758 and the new salaries in EO 611.”
And the job / responsibility below:
Under Article 7, Section 2 of the Philippine Constitution, in order to serve as President, one must be at least 40 years of age, a registered voter, able to read and write, a Filipino citizen by birth, and a resident of the Philippines for at least 10 years immediately preceding election.  Oath
Under Article 7, Section 5 of the Philippine Constitution, before the president enters on the execution of his/her office, the President shall take the following oath or affirmation :
“ I do solemnly swear [or affirm] that I will faithfully and conscientiously fulfill my duties as President [or Vice-President or Acting President] of the Philippines, preserve and defend its Constitution, execute its laws, do justice to every man, and consecrate myself to the service of the Nation. So help me God. ”
Under Article 7, Section 1 of the Philippine Constitution, the president heads the Executive branch of the government, which includes the Cabinet and all executive departments. The executive power, as such, is vested on the President alone.
Section 18 of the Philippine Constitution, the president is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. As Commander-in-Chief, the President can call out such armed forces to prevent or suppress lawless violence, invasion or rebellion. In case of invasion or rebellion, when the public safety requires it, he or she may, for a period not exceeding sixty days, suspend the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus or place the Philippines or any part thereof under martial law.
Section 19 gives the president power to grant reprieves, commutations, and pardons, and remit fines and forfeitures, after conviction by final judgment, except when the President is under impeachment.
Section 20 provides the president to contract or guarantee foreign loans on behalf of the Republic of the Philippines with the prior concurrence of the Monetary Board, and subject to such limitations as may be provided by law.
The president exercises general supervision over local government units.
The president appoints, with consent of the Commission on Appointments, members of the Constitutional Commission, ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, or officers of the armed forces from the rank of colonel or naval captain, and other officers whose appointments are vested in the President in 1987 Constitution.
The members of the Supreme Court are appointed by the president, based on a list prepared by the Judicial and Bar Council. These appointments do not need the consent of the Commission on Appointments. ”
Well, it seems that the salary of a Pinoy President is too low versus the job itself (task and responsibilities), and the work duration last only about 4-6 years. so if u compute 60thousand times 6 years is equal to 4.32 Million only. (please correct me if im mistaken)
PERO, ITS FUNNY WHY THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR THE POSITION, and can SPEND MILLIONS OF PESOS just for political ads…
