MANILA, Philippines – Duterte's close aide said that after deciding not to hold press conferences for the meantime, Duterte started boycotting the media yesterday (04 June 2016). Malacañang prefers to wait and see how president-elect Rodrigo Duterte will carry out his promise to “metamorphose” when he assumes office on June 30 instead of commenting on his pronouncements.

President-elect Rodrigo Duterte restricted media coverage following his rants against members of the industry in his recent press briefings.

Herminio Coloma Jr, the Outgoing Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary said that he does not see anything wrong if all statements of Duterte will be made through state-owned television network PTV4 to avoid misinterpretation of his statements. 

“There is no issue about that… All pronouncements from him (Duterte) will be carried by the People’s Television,” he added.

Coloma said it would be best to wait until he assumes office as the country’s 16th president regarding the Duterte's complaint against media.

“We heard the pronouncement of president-elect Duterte that he would change,” said Coloma.

He said it would be best to wait for the official pronouncements of Duterte as president, being the principal architect of the country’s foreign policy.

He also refrained from reacting on Duterte’s statement against the United Nations when the president-elect was asked about the international organization’s opposition to his statements on media killings.

Coloma said the official policies would carry more weight over “initial observations, preparatory remarks” and current discussions.

Duterte’s camp has been complaining that the statements of the president-elect have been taken out of context by the media.
