- At first, President Duterte did not have any idea about the ouster plot
- However, he finally revealed who orchestrated to oust former House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez
- He even said that he is close friends with Alvarez
It has been three months since former House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez was ousted from his post. Who could be behind this ouster plot?
KAMI has learned that President Rodrigo Duterte has confirmed that it was his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, who orchestrated the entire plan to oust Alvarez.
According to the report of Philippine Star, the President did not know the plan until it was made. He heard the news from Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.
“Sinabi daw ni Inday, nagkita sila sa washroom. 'Tell my father I'm sorry.' So, I did not know the implication. Wala akong...honest to God. Si Inday yun, gi-maneuver niya,” the President said.
In the 44th Philippine Business Conference and Expo at Manila Hotel, the President even warned the public about the capabilities of Sara.
“Talagang ano yan si Inday, so be careful with that woman. She can oust even a Speaker, she operated in Davao. This is a female. She operated in Davao as mayor. Look at what happened in Congress, [Alvarez] was ousted,” Duterte said.
Before, Alvarez released a statement saying he could impeach President Duterte. However, President Duterte stated that they are close friends.
“Bebot, he is a close friend of mine,” Duterte said.
“For us politicians, that’s nothing for us politicians. But why will you impeach when we are friends, that’s the usual answer when you banter around,” he added.
When Sara heard the threat to his father, she did not take it lightly.
“Kung anak, lalo na ito, bantay kayo dito. Nung narinig niya, nag… ‘Bakit mo ganunin ang tatay ko,” Duterte said.
As previously reported by KAMI, during the State of the Nation Address by President Duterte, it surprised the many when they announced that former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will be seating as the House Speaker, ousting Alvarez.
Alvarez served as the House Speaker since 2016 to 2018. He is also serving as the Representative of Davao del Norte's 1st District.
