Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano is willing to step down from his position if his fellow lawmakers at the House of Representatives no longer want him to be their leader anymore.

Cayetano made the remark after the House plenary session on Monday, where an alleged plot to oust him from his position was supposed to take place.

On Sunday, presidential son and Deputy Speaker Paolo Duterte confirmed sending a text message to lawmakers saying that he would ask the Mindanao Bloc to declare House leadership positions vacant on Monday afternoon amid issues involving budgetary allocations for the legislative districts of congressmen.

However, on Monday, no motion to declare the positions of Speaker and Deputy Speakers vacant was made as the House plenary session abruptly ended just 18 minutes after it was called to order.

Cayetano said that although Duterte and him are not always talking personally with each other, he respects the President’s son very much and he believes the latter also respects the Office of the Speaker.
