Trillanes: I will not rain on anybody's party

ABS-CBN News

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Tuesday said he will give Halalan 2016 winners the time to celebrate before continuing with his advocacy of ensuring a system of checks and balances, if the need arises.

"At this point in time, I'm not gonna rain on anybody's party. I'm going to hold my peace. We let the victors celebrate and the vanquished to lick their wounds. And at some point in time, probably we can talk about it again, but at the end of the day, we will not be an obstructionist. We will give Mayor Duterte the latitude to let him do his thing," he told ANC.

Trillanes, who has already accepted his defeat, also vowed that he will not stop presumptive President Rodrigo Duterte from exercising his mandate.
