In an exclusive interview with Mindanation, President Rodrigo Duterte said that former Secretary of Foreign Affairs Alan Peter Cayetano will do a “great job” as the next Speaker of the House of Representatives, should he win as congressman in the lone district of Taguig City in the 2019 midterm elections.

“I dare say that he will do a great job as he did as foreign secretary. Mahusay si Alan, he understands the problem and is a very good human. Tumutulong talaga sa kapwa tao nya.”

The President also praised Cayetano, who was celebrating his birthday in Davao City, for his work in securing arrangements with other nations for the protection of the overseas Filipinos.

“Alam nyo, sya ung inuutusan ko palagi ung mga kailangang tulong natin (sa) mga OFWs. He is part of the team, and he has been responsible for so many agreements na mabigyan (ang mga OFWs) ng proteksyon.”

Duterte added that he “hopes that as a congressman,” Cayetano will continue his work for the Filipino community abroad in congress.
