Duterte’s regular public address again moved on Wednesday
MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte’s regular public address, which is usually held on Mondays, has once again been moved on Wednesday, May 26, Malacañang said Tuesday.
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the President was supposed to hold his public address on Tuesday night but was again moved due to the hectic schedule.
He said the President attended a Regional Peace Council meeting in Dumaguete on Monday, which concluded late at night.
“Na-move po muli. It was initially scheduled tonight pero mamomove po siya for tomorrow,” he said in a Palace briefing.
(This has been moved again. It was initially scheduled tonight but it will be moved again for tomorrow.)
“I think the reason is nakauwi na kami from Dumaguete, ako ala una na ako nakauwi, so medyo puyat po lahat ngayon, including ‘yung mga tao sa OP [Office of the President], so Wednesday ang Talk to the People,” he added.
(I think the reason is we came home from Dumaguete, I, myself, got home at 1 a.m., so people lack sleep, including those from OP, so the Talk to the People will be held on Wednesday.)
During the President’s last public address on May 17, Duterte and former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile discussed maritime issues in the West Philippine Sea.
