Pres. Duterte delivered a speech in front of an enthusiastic crowd in Pasay City during the PDP Thanksgiving Party themed "PDP Takbo sa Puso, NO to Drugs, Yes to Federalism," the President reiterated his commitment to work for a federal form of government.

The President was also quoted as saying "(M)agkadiperensya tayo sa lahat ng bagay huwag lang sa public interest, kase kung public interest lang either magkasundo tayo or hiwa hiwalay tayo,” Duterte said at one point during the event.

One of the promises of Pres. Duterte during the election period is to decentralize governance from Manila and towards local government units particularly in strife-torn Mindanao.

“Yung talagang pinupukpok ko noon was federalism, that was the centerpiece. Let me remind the Filipino people, ito ano ko lang -- kung tatanggapin ninyo, 'pag hindi then you can disregard it maybe, answer in contempt or sarcasm will apply. Pero ito ang tandaan ninyo, we have to change the system," he said.

Pres. Duterte also reiterated his willingness to cut short his six year term once a new system of government is adopted.
