“I never said those words and I will never say those against Dutertes,” said House Speaker Pantaleon “Bebot” Alvarez in his respectful reply to Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte.
The Speaker denied saying to the mayor to belong to the opposition in organizing a separate political party named Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HnP) which will be launched today, Friday in Davao City.
At the same time yesterday, President Duterte said that the ruckus between his daughter and the Speaker, “who are both lawyers”, was just an intrigue, a wedge driven by the “media again”.
Sara made two posts on her Facebook and Instagram accounts lashing out at the Speaker, his father’s most staunchest ally. (mindanaosunchronicle.com/Cha Monforte)
