Ramon Magsaysay (1953-1957) was a highly popular president who initiated peace talks with the guerillas. He opened the gates of Malacanang Palace to ordinary people. Among his many reforms were the acquisition of land settlements for the poor, lowering the price of consumer goods, and breaking up the big landed estates. He died in a plane crash on Mount Manunggal in Cebu in March 1957, which to this day remains a mystery to many Filipinos.
