President Duterte believed that he’s still the chairman of PDP-Laban, according to Malacañang.

On Wednesday, Malacañang said that President Rodrigo Duterte believed that he’s still the chairman of PDP-Laban despite being “ousted” by his rival camp.

During the Presidential press briefing on Wednesday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that President Duterte had no reaction to the development because to him, he’s still the chairman of the ruling party.

However, Roque said that the President was aware that the Supreme Court had to intervene in order to settle the matter.

Wala po, kasi sa mata po ni Presidente nanatili po siyang chairman. Kinakailangan po talaga na madesisyunan ang isyung ito ng Korte Suprema at alam po ‘yan ni Presidente,” he said.

Roque’s statement came after the faction led by Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao ousted President Duterte as party chairman last week and elected Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III as his replacement.

Pacquiao’s camp had repeatedly rejected the legitimacy of the election of Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi as party president along with his allies who belong to the Cusi faction.

According to Pimentel, their camp was certain that the Commission on Elections (Comelec) will recognize and rule in favor of their group.

The Cusi faction of PDP-Laban had endorsed President Duterte as their candidate for vice president in the May 2022 national elections.

Meanwhile, PDP-Laban Executive Director Ron Munsayac on Monday said that Senator Pacquiao was prepared to run as an independent presidential candidate next year.

According to Munsayac, the Pacquiao-led ruling party was ready for “any scenario” should the Supreme Court and the Comelec rule in favor of the faction led by Cusi.
