Duterte to discuss pressing concerns in televised tete-a-tete
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte is scheduled to hold another tete-a-tete with Chief Legal Counsel and Spokesperson Salvador Panelo at 5 p.m. today, Wednesday.
“The tête-à-tête part 2 of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Chief Presidential Legal Counsel and Presidential Spokesperson Salvador S. Panelo will be held today, January 22, 2020 at the Heroes Hall, Malacañang Palace at 5:00 p.m.,” an advisory sent to Palace reporters said.
The live one-on-one interview will be aired live over state-owned PTV-4.
Malacañang said that Duterte will tackle “issues of national concern and affecting national interest.”
In September 2018, Panelo also hosted a one-on-one interview with the President, who mainly spoke about the revocation of the amnesty granted to then-Senator Antonio Trillanes IV by the Aquino administration and the supposed ouster plots against him.
