Duterte tells Francis Tolentino: ‘Wag mo kaming kalimutan sa Congress!
Is Francis Tolentino making another run for the Senate? That seems to be the case based on the remark uttered by President Rodrigo Duterte about his political adviser Thursday (June 14).
In a speech before newly elected barangay chiefs of CALABARZON, Duterte told Tolentino not to forget him and other politikos when he’s already in Congress.
“Presidential Adviser for Political Affairs Francis Tolentino. Senador, ‘pag nandiyan ka na sa Congress huwag mo kaming kalimutan ha,” he said in Laguna.
Tolentino, who served as mayor of Tagaytay City and chairman of the Metro Manila Development Authority, placed 13th in the 2016 elections.
He has yet to announce his political plans in 2019, though he’s a regular sight in the President’s official engagements.
