On the other hand, Senatorial candidate Walden Bello also mentioned the words by the tough senator to tell the voters to make a “judgment” on Duterte. He said, "He says he won’t apologize. Well, if he does not, let’s punish him in the polls on May 9."

Bello said, "To excuse Duterte’s comments is an insult to the women’s movement’s struggle for human rights and dignity, which we have supported and enshrined in a number of laws to make violations of these right illegal and politically unacceptable."
