Bongbong hits back at Cayetano
Bongbong Marcos to Alan Peter Cayetano "Sabi ni Mayor Rody Duterte kapag hindi nalutas ang krimen in 3-6 months ibibigay raw niya ang pagkapangulo sa'kin... kasalanan ko ba na mas gusto nila sa akin kaysa sa'yo?" #BilangPilipinoFor more vice presidential debate updates: http://bilangpilipino.philstar.com/debatePosted by philstar.com on Sunday, April 10, 2016
During one of Sen. Marcos and Sen. Cayetano's heated exchange, Sen. Marcos stated that the tough-talking mayor of Davao City, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has promised him the presidency should he failed to deliver his promise of stamping out criminality in the country in just 6 months.
Sen. Marcos was quoted as saying "Sinabi ni Mayor Digong na kapag hindi nalutas ang problema ng krimen in three to six months, ibibigay niya ang pagka-presidente kay Bongbong. Hindi niya sinabi na ibibigay niya kay Senator Alan,” Marcos said.
The son of former Pres. Marcos added further that maybe the reasons why Mayor Duterte did not mention Cayetano to replace him was because of Sen. Cayetano's record in Taguig City.
Sen. Marcos stated further "Palagay ko dahil sa record ng Taguig na hindi nalutas ang problema. Ngunit nakita niya ang aking kakayahan dahil sa problema ng peace and order sa Mindanao ay meron tayong maibibigay na substitute bill na magbibigay kapayapaan sa Mindanao,” Marcos said.
Sen. Cayetano on his part downplayed Marcos' statement,saying that Mayor Duterte made that remark in jest. The senator was quoted saying "Sinabi ni Mayor Digong kaharap yung mga Ilokano mayors. He was being playful. Pero ang sinabi niya all over the country, ‘pag hindi mo binoto si Alan, huwag mo akong iboboto’,” he said.
Sen. Cayetano reiterated further "Ako kahit hindi niyo ako iboto, 100 percent Duterte…Huwag niyo na lang akong gawing presidente. Alalay lang ako ni Duterte,” Cayetano said.
