Sara Duterte has this revelation about the “veiled threat” of Alan Peter Cayetano

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte revealed that she received a veiled threat from Congressman-elect Alan Peter Cayetano.

Inday Sara, as the presidential daughter, is not just popular in her hometown or in the region of Mindanao.

It is not a secret that there are supporters who are hoping that she will soon become the President of the Philippines. She was also expected to run for Senator in the 2019 midterm elections.

However, the lady mayor chose to remain as the mayor of Davao City.

After the May 13 election and winners from the local government have been proclaimed, an issue surfaced.

Based on the Facebook post of celebrity Vivian Velez, a known supporter of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, Sara Duterte revealed the “veiled threat” she received from Alan Peter Cayetano.

A portion of the statement by the Davao City Mayor stated:

“Cong-elect Alan Peter Cayetano was correct when he said that he did not seek for my endorsement when he came to Davao to talk to me sometime last year. He, however, came with a veiled threat, that if I endorse Rep. Velasco for Speaker, I would break up the “group.” And this, he said, will affect the presidential elections of 2022.”

Inday Sara was talking about the next Speaker of the House endorsement. However, the Mayor said that it is not true that she recommended anyone.

“I am only the Mayor of Davao City. I am not the correct person to endorse someone to be the next speaker,” she said.

Sara Duterte added that she has her personal choice who will be the next Speaker of the House but she does not intend to influence Congress.

Here is the full statement.
