Benigno Simeón Cojuangco Aquino III (8 February 1960 – 24 June 2021) was a Filipino politician who served as the 15th president of the Philippines, holding office from 2010 to 2016. He succeeded Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Also called "Noynoy" and "PNoy," he was the son of Corazon C. Aquino, the 11th Philippine president, and Benigno Aquino Jr., a former senator and critic of dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Before becoming president, he was a senator from 2007 to 2010 and a representative of the 2nd district of the province of Tarlac from 1998 to 2007.

Thrust into national prominence after the death of his mother, Aquino ran for presidency in 2010, winning by a plurality (42.08%) against his closest rivals, former president Joseph Estrada and Manuel Villar. His term ended in 2016, and he was succeeded by Rodrigo Duterte.

Time named Aquino one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013. Among his accomplishments during his term were the stabilization of the economy, the enactment of the reproductive rights law, and being the face of the regional confrontation with Beijing over its claim on the West Philippine Sea. His six-year term also faced national crises and controversies, including his handling of Mamasapano Clash ("SAF 44"), Typhoon Yolanda, and the Manila Hostage Crisis.

Dilawan is a colloquial term used to refer to the members of the Liberal Party (LP) and their supporters. It comes from the word “dilaw,” the Filipino word for yellow, the symbolic color of the party. It is often used as a pejorative by critics of the LP to disparage the party’s members and their supporters.[1]

Under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, who defeated Liberal Party candidate Mar Roxas in the 2016 presidential election, Duterte’s supporters have taken to using “dilawan” to mockingly call his critics regardless of their political affiliation or affinity.[2] Similarly, loyalists of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, who was succeeded by Corazon C. Aquino in the presidency following his ouster via the 1986 People Power Revolution, label his and his family’s critics “dilawan” whether or not they are sympathetic towards the Liberal Party.[3]
