THREAD: @iampinkywebb speaks to Presidential Spokesperson @attyharryroque on #TheSource

• DND ends deal barring state forces in UP campuses
• Duterte to Galvez: Be transparent with Sotto on vaccine deals
• Lacson clarifies no senator said they prefer Pfizer or any vaccine Image
Roque says it was Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana's decision to terminate DND's agreement with UP, which bars the entry of state forces in campuses without notifying school officials.

Roque: As far as I know, he did not consult President Duterte.
Roque on termination of UP-DND accord: Speaking as a lawyer, I don't think mutuality is required
Roque: As a UP graduate and professor, I offer my good office, hoping the matter will be resolved by both parties
Roque: I've studied in UP since high school. To me, it's foreign having police and military there.
Roque on UP-DND accord: My personal opinion, if it worked for 30 years, let's talk why it shouldn't continue for another 30 years
Roque on termination of UP-DND accord: I don't think any UP student will be cowed. They will exercise their rights, academic freedom.
Roque on termination of UP-DND accord: I'm asking UP and DND to sit down and discuss the matter, and I offer my good office
Roque: I'm not duty-bound to follow what [UP journalism associate professor] Danilao Ariao said. I spent more time in UP than him.
Roque says vaccine czar Carlito Galvez wanted to resume vaccine talks to assure supply
Roque on Duterte telling vaccine czar Galvez to be transparent with Senate President Sotto on vaccine deals: The President didn't say Galvez should snub the Senate. He said continue answering questions, but if they start being abusive, just walk out.
Roque on cost of COVID-19 vaccine: We gave a price range so as not to violate non-disclosure clause
We’re hours away from the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden.

Roque: It's always good news that democracy has prevailed. We look forward to having close and friendly relations with the Biden administration.
