Malacañang refused to comment on the statement of former senator Antonio Trillanes IV that President Rodrigo Duterte plans to extend his stay in office beyond 2022.
In a Twitter post, Trillanes said Filipinos should expect Duterte to do worse than the United States Capitol riot just to cling to power.
“Nagpapansin lang po yan dahil mukhang nananaginip na bumalik sa Senado. No comment is necessary,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Monday.
Despite the initiative to amend the constitution, Roque reiterated that Duterte is not interested in extending beyond the end of his term.
