Oriental Mindoro Rep. Doy Leachon said the allies of Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano “openly insulted” Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco during their meeting in Malacanang with President Rodrigo Duterte.

“It’s true that those on Cayetano’s side launched personal attacks against Velasco in the meeting with President Duterte last night,” Leachon told ANC in an interview.

Velasco was openly insulted, he added.

“Sinabi nila na kahit gusto nilang sundin ang wish ng pangulo at gentleman’s agreement, si Cong. Lord daw ay nag-betray dahil may mga kudeta daw. At wala raw ginagawa si Cong. Lord Velasco,” said Leachon, a Velasco ally.

The President then said “tama na ‘yan,” Leachon said.

“Binigyan naman ng pagkakataon ang lahat na magsalita,” he said.

Leachon said the two men reached an agreement during the meeting to honor their term-sharing agreement and have a change of leadership on October 14.
