Fingers are indicating Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as a moving power in the ouster of Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and the establishment of previous President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in his place, even though she's not an individual from Congress.

 She is not the President. She is only the President’s daughter. She is only the mayor of Davao City. But we can already see the influence she wields on Congress of the Philippines,” said Act Teachers Rep. Antonio Tinio. “It’s no longer the majority—it’s the mayor,” Tinio told a press briefing. 

The restriction administrator portrayed Mayor Duterte's evident rise as a "power behind the throne" in MalacaƱang as a disturbing improvement. Be that as it may, Deputy Speaker Fredenil Castro, one of Arroyo's best partners in the House, said Mayor Duterte was well inside her rights to campaign administrators.

It is her right to campaign for anyone who is running for a public position and I don’t see anything wrong if you campaign for a candidate,” Castro told reporters.


Castro sent inquiries on whether Sara Duterte had truly called House individuals to discharge Alvarez from the speakership.


“Some have said so and in fact it has been going on around that Mayor Duterte called some people to strengthen the move to unseat Speaker Alvarez, but I am not aware of it,” he said. “As a matter of fact, I was waiting for her call, but she did not call me,” he added.

“I did talk to Sara . . . We talked about motorcycles,” Suarez said

She openly praised Arroyo, whom she depicted as a "strong leader." She didn't remark on the theories about her part in the speakership fight.  She also upstaged the third State of the Nation Address of her Father.

Meanwhile, Oriental Mindoro Rep. Reynaldo Umali, ascribed the previous Speaker's go wrong to his fight with Mayor Duterte and said:

“I think it was more the rift of the Speaker with Mayor Sara,”

Rep. Teddy Baguilat Jr. said that the Alvarez’s quarrel with Sara Duterte is a tipping point that helped move force to support Arroyo. The Davao chairman shot Alvarez for evidently calling her recently framed Hugpong ng Pagbabago provincial gathering some portion of the restriction and for telling a group that he could reprimand her dad, charges the previous Speaker denied.

“We all thought Speaker Alvarez was such a diehard who took extreme measures to please the administration, but it turned out there was a bigger fish, which is why he was set aside”

Tinio said that Alvarez’s evacuation could not have occurred without the President’s favoring.
