Staying true to his populist Presidential style, President Rodrigo Duterte has issued a memo asking government officials to refrain from using “His Excellency” in addressing him in all official communications.


The memorandum was signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea. He said that “the President shall be addressed in all official communications, events or materials as President Rodrigo Roa Duterte only, and without the term His Excellency.”
