Pres. Duterte To Support Sen. Bong Go not former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr. for President

DUTERTE – Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said that he will not support the bid of former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr. for president.

Substitutions for the Election 2022 are allowed until today, November 15. Among the recent changes include Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte withdrawing her bid for re-election, leaving her regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago and joining Lakas-CMD, and filing her candidacy for vice president in 2022.

Mayor Inday Sara is the running-mate of presidential aspirant and former Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr. In the vice presidential race, she will supposedly face-off with Senator Bong Go.

Sen. Go is a long-time aide of Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte before he joined politics and won a seat in the Senate. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the 76-year-old Chief Executive expressed that the Senator was crying and he planned to back out from the vice presidential race as Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte is running for the same position too.
