Ferdinand E. Marcos - President

Sixth President of the Third Republic


Ferdinand Emmanuel Edral?Marcos (September 11, 1917 ? September 28, 1989) was President of the Philippines from 1965 to 1986. He was a lawyer, member of the Philippine House of Representatives (1949-1959) and a member of the Philippine Senate (1959-1965). During World War II he claimed to be the leader of Ang Maharlika, a guerrilla force in northern Luzon. In 1963 he became Senate President. As Philippine president and strongman, his greatest achievement was in the fields of infrastructure development and international diplomacy. However, his administration was marred by massive authoritative government corruption, despotism, nepotism, political repression and human rights violations. He has also led a large personality cult in the Philippines during his regime, which was often compared to Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Saparmurat Niyazov, and Kim Il-Sung.[1] In 1986 he was removed from power during the People Power Revolution after it was revealed he had moved hundreds of millions of dollars of embezzled public funds to the United States.
