"Agcaoili and Jalandoni, I will not keep it a secret, I do not want confidential-confidential, pupunta dito sabi nila gusto nila ako kausapin," said Duterte, who was was in Puerto Princesa for the Subaraw Biodiversity Festival.
"Ang problema nila kapag hulihin sila. Sabi ko talagang huhulihin kayo," the president added.
"So nagtawag ako ng cluster meeting kasali ng mga military. [I asked them,] ‘So what do you think?' Sabi nila, baka, baka pa lang. It's not a very big margin there. Pero baka pa lang."
