Change sought media covering president-electRodrigo Duterte's arranged thanksgiving party on Saturday, June 4, when occasion coordinators reported that media gatherings would never again be permitted inside a readied range close to the stage. 

This implies media telecast set-ups are no more permitted. Rather, live footage of the occasion will be gushed through Radio Television Malacañang (RTVM) and state-run People's Television Network (PTV4). 

The adjustment in arrangements, which was reported to media just before 8 am on Saturday, comes the morning after Duterte, through his official partner Bong Go, declared he would never again be holding public interviews. 

All declarations and meetings will be coursed through PTV4, Go said.

Duterte, who will take his pledge on June 30 yet, has been under flame as of late for declarations made in question and answer sessions this week. His comments in regards to media killings and his whistling of a female TV columnist amid a live public interview started resentment both locally and universally. 

Kat Dalisay, one of the occasion's coordinators, was not able clarify the explanations for the change of set up. "The higher powers will answer that for us," she told columnists in a chance meeting. 

By "higher powers," Dalisay signified "consolidated security government offices." 

"Sinabi lang na may bagong convention na RTVM and PTV4 yung for media rin (They recently said that there's another convention and that exclusive RTVM and PTV4 will cover for media)," included Dalisay. 

A blend of nearby and national security powers are in Davao both for the occasion and to secure the approaching president. The "One love, one country" occasion at the Crocodile Park includes around 6,500 security work force from the Presidential Security Group (PSG), the military and the police. 

RTVM, Malacañang's in-house video generation unit, was made in 1987 amid the administration of the late Cory Aquino. RTVM is "the substance with the sole obligation and selective privilege to choose approach/operational matters concerning the TV medium as it is used for the official documentation of all the President's exercises for news scattering purposes and for video chronicling." 

Dalisay alluded to the Duterte thanksgiving party as "an occasion sorted out and arranged by the private segment however it is an open occasion."
