Approaching president Rodrigo Duterte said Sunday he has not decided yet on a cabinet position for presumptive VP Leni Robredo.
Duterte and Robredo, who originate from opposing parties, are set to be announced champs of the May 9 races this week.
"Why should I talk to her? I have not considered anything for her because I’m more worried where I would place the friends na nagkautang ako ng loob," Duterte said of Robredo, the running mate of his opponent, previous inside secretary Mar Roxas.
"I should not be looking beyond my borders yet," he included.
Robredo beat the main son and namesake of the late despot, Ferdinand Marcos, amid a marathon official canvass in Congress a week ago.
Robredo, who has given free lawful help to poor people, has communicated inclination to work in the Duterte government's hostile to neediness crusade.
In a meeting with columnists Sunday, Duterte rejected feedback he was putting a premium on companionship over capabilities in picking bureau secretaries.
"Ang mga kilala ko, mga brod ko at yung mga kababata ko dito na mahusay," he said.
Duterte has picked long-term Davao companions Carlos Dominguez as money secretary and Jesus Dureza as presidential peace consultant.
