Starting Monday, Salvador Panelo will begin speaking for President Rodrigo Duterte.
Panelo is currently Duterte’s chief legal counsel.
In a text message to reporters, the abogado confirmed that he will replace Harry Roque Jr. as spokesperson next week.
Early today Roque, who had filed a leave of absence to travel overseas Monday, said he has not resigned as presidential mouthpiece.
Asked if he knew Panelo was the next spokesman, Roque said: “Ok (let’s) wait for (next) week.”
