Tweets by our digital producers @laratyan, @cathmodesto1, @pplmanuel
Duterte says the government is studying opening the COVID-19 vaccination program to the general public by October depending on vaccine supply
Duterte: We always have to keep equity in mind, dapat unahin natin ang walang-wala at mahihirap
Duterte issues a proposal to senators: I will require that the Cabinet members invited to your hearings, they will clear the invitation with me
Duterte: We don't question the authority and power of the Senate to investigate... The subpoenas are repeated every hearing. Most of the DOH officials were there... Doing nothing.
Duterte on Senate probes: If I think that he (Cabinet official) will be called na walang silbi except to harass, berated in front of the public, hintuin ko iyan at pagbawalan ko
Duterte on Senate probes: May option kayo to cite the person in contempt. Ako na magsabi. Ako ang may utos na hindi mag-attend.
Duterte on Senate probes: Umabot na from the procurement [of PPEs], then down to Pharmally, now you're branching out to issues on drugs.
Duterte on resource persons in Senate hearings, which include Cabinet officials: Mahirap pinapatawag niyo, pabalik-balik, di niyo naman nau-utilize testimony
Duterte on controlling attendance of Cabinet members in Senate probes: I think I can do it as president if there is exceeded authority there. I will limit what you can do with the executive department.
Duterte accuses senators of "stretching" legislative probes because it is good for their election prospects
Duterte: You can crumple Pharmally. Wala kaming pakialam diyan. Ang pakialam namin nag-order kami, dumating, ang presyo negotiated.
Duterte warns Senator Richard Gordon: I will campaign against you for being unfit to be a senator
Duterte reiterates the government only made payments to Pharmally until after the orders were delivered
Duterte slams Senate probes which last for hours: Tama ba 'yang ginagawa niyo? Are you crazy?
Duterte on DOH Sec. Duque's appearance in legislative probes: The next time he's invited, he should clear sa'kin the invitation to appear. I will decide.
Duterte asks PDEA chief Wilkins Villanueva to deliver his presentation: Wag ka na mag-ano ng mask, matibay ka naman. Ilang dekada mo na.
PDEA chief Villanueva discusses the Davao City ‘clandestine laboratory operation’ in 2004
PDEA chief Villanueva recalls how PNP, PDEA were at odds from 2002-2004: Ayaw tanggapin ng PNP na PDEA is the lead agency. Yung mga nasa PDEA, panay pulis din so yung capability niya that time, talagang mahina.
PDEA chief Villanueva recalls the 2004 clandestine drug laboratory operation in an attempt to clear Duterte's ex-adviser Michael Yang: Ito ang personalities, wala kayong makikitang Michael Yang diyan
Duterte on Senate probes: I plead for fairness sa mga taong tinatawag ninyo. Pag ganoon style ninyo, lahat ng taga-gobyerno sabihin ko wag na magpunta.
Duterte recalls a time he received intel reports on Yang’s alleged drug links from Acierto: Nagduda (ako) dito, kasi taga Davao ito (Yang), 20 years na itong may negosyo
Duterte: There's only one thing I can say: itong si Acierto at Fajardo, wala talaga credibility. Gordon now is in a bind: paano siya lalabas nito?
DICT Sec. Gringo Honasan: Itong connectivity, access to data and information is now classified as a right. Parang food, clothing, shelter, education, health services.
DICT Sec. Honasan talks about the department’s programs, accomplishments
DICT Sec. Honasan recalls how they signed a joint memorandum circular to fast-track the process of setting up common cell towers: Sa kasalukuyan, 16 days na lang. Nagsimula tayo, 214 days.
DICT Sec. Honasan: Mayroon na tayong 25,313 na tower ngayon kumpara sa 16,051 noong Dec. 2017
DICT Sec. Honasan on the telecom services in PH: We made some improvements. Hindi naman tayo zero.
DICT Sec. Honasan: Every day na nagmmeet ang inter-agency task force, we continue to rebalance economic, health, political, social, security variables
DICT Sec. Honasan says they have already established 10,996 free wi-fi sites across the country to date
DICT Sec. Honasan says 9 LGUs have already launched their Digital Cities Roadmap
DICT Sec. Honasan on VaxCertPH: Kaya nahuli ng konti, sinisigurado natin na ang datos ng local government ay accurate
DICT Sec. Honasan: We have to raise the level of awareness of government as a sector for ICT-driven connectivity
DICT Sec. Honasan: Isa tayo sa mga unang bansang nagpatupad ng vaccination certificate
DICT Sec. Honasan says they're helping LGUs in their vaccination activities to also allow the submission of correct data to their vaccine information system
DICT Sec. Honasan on ensuring connectivity in light of polls amid pandemic: We're not going to be voter density-driven. We will go for the farthest, smallest, poorest.
The taped address ends after one hour and 40 minutes with only two presentations from PDEA and DICT. Duterte says there may be another meeting on Wednesday.
