About Fidel Ramos
Fidel Ramos: The President Who Brought Stability to the Philippines
Fidel Ramos, born on March 18, 1928, in Lingayen, Pangasinan, was the 12th President of the Philippines, serving from 1992 to 1998. He was a former general in the Philippine Army and played a crucial role in the country's transition to democracy after the Marcos dictatorship.
Ramos was a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and served in the Philippine Army for over 30 years. He was appointed Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines in 1986, following the People Power Revolution that ousted President Ferdinand Marcos.
As President, Ramos implemented economic reforms that helped stabilize the Philippine economy, which had been struggling for years. He also pursued peace talks with various rebel groups, including the Moro National Liberation Front and the Communist Party of the Philippines.
Ramos was known for his "Philippines 2000" vision, which aimed to make the country a newly industrialized nation by the year 2000. He also championed the cause of overseas Filipino workers and strengthened ties with other countries, particularly the United States.
Despite facing several challenges during his presidency, including a coup attempt in 1995, Ramos was able to maintain stability and promote progress in the Philippines. He left office in 1998 with high approval ratings and was succeeded by Joseph Estrada.
Ramos continues to be active in public service and is involved in various organizations, including the Ramos Peace and Development Foundation. He has received numerous awards and recognition for his contributions to the Philippines and the international community.

While campaigning for the presidency, Ramos declared his support for reinstating the death penalty. Capital punishment was abolished for all crimes in 1987, making the Philippines the first Asian country to do so. In 1996, Ramos signed a bill that returned capital punishment with the electric chair (method used from 1923 to 1976, making Philippines the only country to do so outside U.S.) "until the gas chamber could be installed". However, no one was electrocuted or gassed, because the previously used chair was destroyed earlier in a fire and the Philippines adopted the method of lethal injection. After his presidency, some people were put to death by this means, until the death penalty was abolished again in 2006.
