GMA News anchor and reporter Mariz Umali said it seemed improper for President-elect Rodrigo Duterte to catcall her during Wednesday's press conference in Davao City but said she does not expect an apology.
In an interview on "News To Go" on Thursday, Umali said, "It may have been improper from a president-elect but, of course, we will continue to do our job and we are not expecting any apology from him personally."
Umali said she did not receive any statement or apology from the camp of Duterte but tried to understand the outgoing Davao City mayor's personality.
"From their end, walang lumapit o nakipag-usap man lang. I'm not expecting any apology pero wala man lang nakipag-usap from their end," she said.
"Iniintindi natin yan because sa mga coverage natin sa kanya talagang sinasabi niya na ganoon talaga siya and mayroon pa nga siyang sinabi na pabiro noong previous press conference na baka hindi daw perfect si God because he created him that way.
Mayroon pa siyang sinabi na kapag daw nagbago siya ay hindi na siya si Rodrigo Duterte," Umali added.
