President Rodrigo Duterte felt House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano duped him by moving to stay in his post despite a term sharing agreement with Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco.

In an interview on ANC’s “Headstart” Friday (October 9), Velasco said the President was visibly enraged about the developments in the House when they met on October 5.

“Kitang kita ko ‘yung galit ng Pangulo. Sabi sa akin ni Pangulo, ‘Lord, hindi lang ikaw ang napahiya dito, tayong dalawa.’ Actually, the President used the word ‘Lord, nadenggoy tayong dalawa,” he said.

Cayetano offered to resign on September 30, a day after meeting with Duterte and Velasco in Malacanang about the term sharing agreement for the speakership. 184 lawmakers rejected his offer.

The Speaker’s camp has touted the rejection of his resignation offer as a vote of confidence for his leadership.

Velasco, meanwhile, has insisted that Cayetano step down on October 14, the last session day before Congress goes on a month-long break.

The Marinduque lawmaker said Cayetano had agreed to resign on October 14 during their September meeting with the President.

“Sabi niya kay Speaker Cayetano, ‘Alan, ok na. Oct. 14, you will resign. You will announce that on Oct. 14 you are resigning because you abide by the gentleman’s agreement.’ After that, nag-shake sila ng hands,” he said.
