Malacañang has not ceased to give people surprises, the most recent of which was when President Rodrigo Duterte cancelled his press conference.
KAMI learned that instead of the conference, the President opted for a one-on-one with the Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Sal Panelo.
Spokesperson of Malacañang, Harry Roque, said that the Palace did not cancel the presscon, they simply "modified" the format.
In the said one-on-one with Panelo, the only network that would be allowed to cover it would be PTV-4.
Roque isn't sure though if the said one-on-one will be streamed live. However, he assured the public that questions from the media would be asked.
"I don't think anyone can complain because your questions were collected and will be asked," said Roque.
He also stated that the decision to modify the format was made by both the President and the Communications Operations Office.
Netizens reacted adversely to such pronouncement though. Some stated that Duterte does not have word of honor. There were others who expressed their support forTrillanes.
