“I am not attending any proclamation”. This is Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte said when asked if he will attend to the congress to proclaim him as the next president of the country.
“I am not attending any proclamation. I have never attended any proclamation in my life,” Duterte said in a press conference in Davao City on late Saturday.
He said his lawyers will represent him in the proclamation “May mga abugado ako doon. Makinig na lang sila,” Duterte said.
“In all of my political aspirations, nanalo naman ako. Sabi ko nga baka God would want me to taste defeat but it never happened,” he said.
“Pero hindi bale, sa sugal talo naman ako parati so bawi lang din” the tough-talking president said in jest.
