Sen. Kiko to Duterte: Choose your words carefully when you speaks out

A lot of politicians have been reminding the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to clean up his potty mouth.

Due to the president's sharp way of choosing his words, he earned a lot of supporters and also people who are doubting him.

Recently, Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan reminded President Duterte to practice “greater restraint” in his wording on his public statements following his feud with Supreme Court Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno. Pangilinan posted on his facebook account: “We welcome President Duterte’s public apology for his ‘harsh words’ meant for Chief Justice Sereno.

It shows that he is willing to admit when he is wrong and this is laudable,” Pangilinan wrote on Facebook.

“We appeal to the President to exercise greater restraint and to choose his words carefully when he speaks out on various matters now that he is President of the entire nation and no longer just the Mayor of Davao City,” he added.

Pangilinan only wanted to remind President Duterte that as a representative, not only by the country but also its 100 plus million citizens, both here in the country and abroad the words he say on his public comments will have a great impact on all Filipinos.

Whether it is positive or negative, he has to watch his mouth.



Here's a full statement of Senator Kiko Pangilinan:
We welcome President Duterte’s public apology for his “harsh words” meant for Chief Justice Sereno. It shows that he is willing to admit when he is wrong and this is laudable.

We appeal to the President to exercise greater restraint and to choose his words carefully when he speaks out on various matters now that he is President of the entire nation and no longer just the Mayor of Davao City.

As President of our nation, he represents all 100 plus million Filipinos both here and abroad, including myself, my wife, and my children. Thus every time he speaks in public, depending on what he says and how he says it, all of us Filipinos can be affected either positively or negatively.

Tayo’y natutuwa sa public apology ni Pangulong Duterte ukol sa kanyang “harsh words” para kay Chief Justice Sereno. Ito’y nagpapakita na siya ay handang umamin ng kamalian. Ito’y kapuri-puri.

Tayo’y umaapela sa Pangulo na maging mas mapagpigil at mapili sa mga salitang binibitawan ukol sa iba’t ibang bagay ngayong siya na ang Pangulo ng buong bansa at hindi na Mayor ng Davao City lamang.

Bilang pangulo ng buong bayan, siya ang kumakatawan sa higit na 100 milyong Filipino dito at sa buong mundo, kasama na kami ng aking asawa at anak. Kaya tuwing siya’y nagsasalita sa publiko, depende sa kanyang sasabihin at paano niya ito sinasabi, nakaka-apekto sa ating lahat na Filipino, positive man o negatibo.
