Incoming Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez described President-elect Rodrigo Duterte as sincere, sensitive and strong-minded but soft-hearted. “He is a sincere and sensitive person. Matapang lang tingnan, pero I’m sure malambot ang puso” Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted Alvarez as saying.
He added that the tough-talking Duterte even cried at the backstage during his campaign sorties “Several times umiyak siya sa kampanya. Hindi lang makita kasi nasa backstage”. Alvarez said that Duterte listen to others opinion “but he processes it himself.Huwag mo lang siyang madalihin, o kaya kulitin na gawin mo ‘to, gawin mo yan. Ayaw niya yun eh. In his own time, but kino-consider niya lahat,” Alvarez said. “’Pag binigyan mo ng advise, reverse ang kaniyang ginagawa. Kabaligtaran lagi ang ginagawa niya. Kaya yung bandang huli, sabihin na lang natin huwag na siya tumakbo para tumakbo,” Alvarez said.
