President Rodrigo Duterte will reveal his choice for House Speaker on June 28, said Senator-elect Christopher Go.

Go said Duterte made the announcement during a dinner hosted by his son, Congressman-elect Paolo Duterte for newbie representatives at the Malago Clubhouse in Malacañang last Tuesday.

“Actually humingi po ng konting panahon si Pangulong Duterte. Talagang nahihirapan po siya. Lahat naman po ng mga kandidato ay magagaling. Competent naman po sila. Qualified po sila maging… Speaker po ng House,” said Go, former special assistant to the president.

“At humihingi si Pangulong Duterte up to June 28, kung gusto nila na si Pangulo, kung mas nanaisin ni Pangulo na hindi na po siya ang pumili subalit talagang binabalik sa kanilang mga miyembro ng House na pumili siya para makatrabaho na po kaagad sila bago pa po dumating iyong SONA. So humihingi lang ng konting panahon si Pangulong Duterte,” according to him.

Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo had said Duterte will not meddle in the selection of the next Speaker of the House of Representatives.
