Ipinakilala na! Pantaleon Alvarez introduces girlfriend as ‘his wife’
Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez on February 17 introduced his girlfriend, Jennifer Vicencio, as his wife.
The Davao del Norte politiko made the remark during the groundbreaking ceremony of a hospital in San Isidro.
“Siya na ang misis ko ngayon. Tingnan niyong mabuti baka may mamamasyal, magpapakilala, fake news ‘yan,” Alvarez said.
Alvarez is separated from his legal wife Emelita Apostol Alvarez.
Mrs. Alvarez previously said she was ‘abandoned’ by the Davao del Norte politiko in 2016 after he was elected as House Speaker.
But Alvarez said the Manobo tribe, which he claims he belongs to, allows polygamy.
