In a speech in Taguig on Monday, President Rodrigo Duterte asked the members of the Cayetano family when their dynasty will end.
“House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano and his lovely wife. Saan si Lani nandito ba? Si Mayor and si Lino. Sorry, the Taguig mayor. Kailan kaya matapos ang — ang dynasty ninyo,” said Duterte as he acknowledged the presence of the Cayetanos in the audience.
Lino is currently the mayor of Taguig City while Lani is the incumbent congresswoman of the second district.
Alan, who ran unsuccessfully as Duterte’s vice president in 2016, on one hand, is the representative of the city’s first district.
His elder sister, Pia, is a senator.
“Well, you can ask the same question safely with me,” the President said whose three children reign the local government of Davao City.
Duterte’s daughter, Sara, was reelected mayor while her brothers Paolo and Baste won as congressman and vice mayor, respectively.
