Pres. Duterte Reveals Firm Stand on Mayor Sara Duterte’s Possible Presidential Bid
Currently, none has yet to confirm a bid for the 2022 Elections. Truths be told that the so-called “election fever” is starting as many people are wondering who might go for a presidential race. There are consistent names in survey results.
One of those who are usually part of survey results is Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. Many are undeniably calling for her to run for president in the next election.
Amid the widespread tarpaulins urging the Davao City Mayor to run for the highest post in the government, she previously expressed that she has no intention to run for president.
However, Mayor Sara’s political party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago, is persistent in encouraging the Davao City Mayor to run for president. She’s asked to reconsider her decision and she is given until this month to decide on it.
As for Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte, he is firm that he does not want Mayor Inday Sara to run for president. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the Chief Executive wants his daughter to be spared from the “vagaries of politics”.
According to the 76-year-old President, his daughter is just “open” for the possibility of a presidential bid but it does not mean that she will run. He said that he wants her spared from personalities like former Senator Antonio Trillanes III and Sen. Leila de Lima.
“Walang ginawa kundi mag-atake ng mga kapwa tao nila. I’d rather na ibigay ang gobyerno sa kanila, let them win. I wish them luck,” he expressed.
Pres. Duterte added that he even wish them to win and, in case they would, the government is for them and they can do what they want. Based on the report, he admitted that he will get hurt if Mayor Sara would be attacked. He is open to her running in some other time but not at this time.
“Run at some other time, ‘wag ngayon kasi wala kang ma-ano dito,” the President said.
