A TOP Palace official confirmed efforts that TV host Willie Revillame is being wooed by the Chief Executive to run for senator under the administration party.
“Yes, I confirm that,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press briefing with Palace scribes.
Roque also said that the President has yet to confirm if he would be able to sit down and meet with PDP-Laban president Senator Manny Pacquiao for a meeting over what the latter described as a simple misunderstanding within the ruling party.
The rift stemmed when Pacquiao, the acting PDP-Laban president, asked members not to attend the party’s May 31 national council meeting organized by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi. The meeting, however, pushed through after Malacañang said it has the blessings of Duterte, the party’s chairman.
