Watch: President Duterte plans to rename Malacañang to People’s Palace


President Rodrigo Duterte says he wanted to change the historical name of Malacañang to People’s Palace.

According to President Duterte, one day he will rename Malacañang to People’s Palace.

“In the word Malacañang, it sucks with imperialism,” said Duteret.

“Who gave that name? The Spaniards? One day I will rename it People’s Palace,” he added.

However, a historian explained that Malacañang is a Filipino word, which derived from “may lakan diyan'” phrase — a place of leader.
