In a statement, the presidential son said he does not want his name to be dragged into the speakership issue and "dirty" politics.

"Kung sino man ang gusto na idamay ako sa usapin ng speakership sa House of Representatives — huwag po ninyo akong gamitin. Huwag po ang pangalan ko. Ilabas po ninyo ako sa inyong marumi, mapanghamak, bastos, at nakakawala ng respeto na uri ng pulitika," he said.


Though he did not name the person he called a “friend”, it was obvious that he was referring to the former Senator. 

"Magkaibigan tayo, pero ang pagkakaibigan na ito ay may limitasyon.

"Ang pagkakaibigan natin ay hindi lisensya para gamitin ninyo ako upang sirain ang inyong kalaban, bastusin ang kanyang asawa o ang kanyang pamilya," he added.

Recently, Cayetano criticized Marinduque Rep. Lord Alan Velasco and his wife for supposedly refusing President Rodrigo Duterte’s proposal to share the Speakership term with other contenders. 

"I am deeply disappointed that after we both expressed full agreement with the President's proposal Rep. Velasco and his wife are now making a turn around and won't honor President's wishes," Cayetano said in a statement. 

On Monday, Cayetano said he did not feel alluded to in Paolo Duterte's statement. 

"I don't feel alluded to. Sinabi lang niya, sana walang bastusan. Ano bang pinakamalaking pambabastos na nangyari? When Lord said there's no such term agreement and the President said meron," he told ANC.
