MANILA - Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said Thursday he would have a one-on-one interview with President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday, Jan. 22, to discuss different state concerns.

The interview will be held at Malacañang Palace and will cover all “current issues,” Panelo said.

“Ang sabi niya kasi sa akin ‘I want to discuss many things and I want the Filipino people to listen to what I’m going to say,'” Panelo told reporters.

(He told me that he wants to discuss many things and that he wants the Filipino people to listen to what he’s going to say.)

Panelo had his first live one-on-one interview with Duterte in Sept. 2018 where they discussed martial law in Mindanao, his critic former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, inflation and the rice supply crisis, among others.
