Elpidio Quirino


From 1948 until 1953, this Liberal Party turned Nacionalista Party politician served as the sixth Leader from the Philippines. Previously, he previously offered as Vice Leader, Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Secretary of the inside, Secretary of Fund, and Leader Pro Tempore from the Philippine Senate. After getting his law level from the School from the Philippines, he started his political profession as an associate from the Philippine Home of Staff. Like American Leader Franklin D. Roosevelt, Quirino instituted some ‘fireside talk’ radio broadcasts to see the general public about the programs of his administration. His relationship to Alicia Syquia created children called Tomas, Armando, Norma, Victoria, and Fe. Victoria offered as First Female from the Philippines after her mom and three of her siblings had been tragically murdered during Globe Battle II by Japanese soldiers occupying the Philippines. Before acquiring office as Leader, Quirino offered as Vice Leader from the Philippines beneath the administration of Leader Manuel Roxas.
