Former president Rodrigo Roa Duterteb on Tuesday shared a cryptic post about the importance of having principles.

"Ang importante kasi 'yung prinsipyo. Kung may prinsipyo ka, magkakaintindihan talaga tayo," Duterte said in a post shared on his Facebook account.

"Ngayon, kung wala kang prinsipyo sa buhay at basta papayag ka lang just because of pakikisama even if you're doing the wrong thing…do not expect me to clap my hands every time you make a stupid thing there," he added.

The former chief executive did not particularly mention to whom the post is directed.


However, the cryptic post comes after House Speaker Martin Romualdez made an indirect swipe at Duterte and his daughter, Vice President Sara, during the resumption of sessions at the House of Representatives on Monday.

Romualdez stood up and said that the lawmakers must not allow people who would malign and dictate the House's direction.

He assured his colleagues in the House of Representatives that he would stand up in favor of the public’s interests and against anyone who threatens the institution just to get what he or she wants.


In an interview with Sonshine Media Network International (SMNI), Duterte accused the House, commanded by Romualdez, of being the most rotten institution and that its members had bellies full of pork barrels—lump sum amounts that lawmakers may allocate to projects after the General Appropriations Act was passed.
