Outgoing President Benigno Aquino III and incoming President elect Duterte have finally spoken to each other via phone call.
According to politic.com.ph
A Politiko source said that President Benigno Aquino III contacted President-elect Rodrigo Duterte Thursday, June 16 while the latter’s representatives were being given a tour inside Malacañang in Manila.
The same source said that Aquino congratulated Duterte for his landslide victory in the May 9 polls. The brief conversation is said to be the first between the two since the elections.
Aquino reportedly used the phone of Bong Go, Duterte’s designated executive assistant, to reach out to the tough-talking politiko.
The call took all of one minute while Aquino and the Duterte delegation were on the barge on their way from Malacanang to Bahay Pangarap across the Pasig river.
