Roque Claims Duterte Told Him He Wants Inday Sara To Take Presidential Bid
ROQUE – Presidential spokesman Harry Roque stands by his claim that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte wants Mayor Inday Sara to run for president in the 2022 Elections.
The 2022 Election is fast approaching and there are already talks on who might take the presidential race. One of those eyed to probably run for president is Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. There are calls for the presidential daughter to take the presidential bid.
Previously, Mayor Inday Sara has denied intentions to run for president in 2022. However, her political party, the Hugpong ng Pagbabago, is persistent in urging her to take the presidential race. She is given until July to decide.
Previously, presidential spokesman Harry Roque said that Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte really wants her daughter to her successor. It is amid claims of Mayor Inday Sara that both her parents do not want her to run for president.
Roque stands by his claim. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the presidential spokesman stressed that he can only repeat what Pres. Duterte told him but he also has apprehensions.
According to Roque, the President said that he really wants Mayor Inday Sara Duterte to run for the top post in the government but he also does not want her to go through the most painful part of being a president – to be criticized even without basis.
Based on the report, the presidential spokesman expressed that it is “unthinkable” for him to claim something that the President did not say. He further claimed that the Chief Executive has talked to the Davao City Mayor but she really has no intention to run for president.
“I just repeat what the president says, and as spokes[man], it is unthinkable for me to claim that the President said something that he did not,” the presidential spokesman said.
