"On the extreme, maybe I will just give you guys, walang personalan ‘to. Trabaho lang (this is not personal, I’m just doing my job). I’ll give you about towards the end of the year a new setup that could provide enough energy to run a place and so that it can develop, operate and it can move. You have to upgrade your source of energy," he added.

According to Pres. Duterte he will bring in big players, even foreign ones, if the local government cannot meet the said deadline.

"Kasi kapag hindi, ang gawain ko, maghanap ako ng may pera talaga (Because if not, I will really look for someone who has the money to do it)," Duterte warned.



"China nangangati ang kamay niyan eh (China is itching) just to get hold of developments here. I will expropriate your franchise. Bilihin ko ‘yan (I will buy that) at an evaluation that is fair, just compensation, to end this almost an impasse," he said.

“I’d like to talk to the governor and si mayor, mag-usap tayo, magkape lang tayo sir sa opisina ko. Pag-usapan natin ‘to, because di ko maano na hanggang ngayon, at this age, mayroong electricity tapos napuputol (and the mayor. Let’s talk about it over coffee in my office. I cannot accept that until today, there are still power interruptions),” he added, referring to Palawan Gov. Jose Alvarez and Puerto Princesa Mayor Lucilo Bayron.

According to various reports the residents of Puerto Princesa and Southern Palawan have been experiencing daily power interruptions since 2017 due to power line faults and problems in their independent power provider's generators.
