MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – “May hangganan din ang tumanaw ng utang na loob.” (Debt of gratitude has its limitations.)
This was how Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan responded to Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte’s attacks that he was “opportunistic.”
In her Facebook page, Duterte this week accused Pangilinan and Senators Risa Hontiveros and Antonio Trillanes IV of having presidential ambitions. She also recounted how they asked for help from her and President Rodrigo Duterte regarding endorsements in the previous elections.
‘Twenty percent of tbe country above all else “ Pangilinan told The Adobo Chronicles.
He was apparently referring to the latest Pulse Asia survey that shows President Duterte enjoying an overwhelming 80% approval rating among Filipinos.
Pangilinan — advocate of the 20% minority. Or less. But nevertheless above all else.
