Mayor Sara Duterte Speaks amid Tirades against Former Sen. Bongbong Marcos
SARA DUTERTE – The vice-presidential aspirant and Davao City Mayor urged her supporters to protect former Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr.
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte withdrew her candidacy for re-election in 2022 and endorsed her younger brother, Davao City Vice Mayor Baste Duterte, for the mayoralty bid instead. She resigned from Hugpong ng Pagbabago, the regional political party she founded, and joined Lakas-CMD.
Under Lakas-CMD which she now chairs, Mayor Duterte substituted their vice-presidential bet. She also agreed to tandem with presidential aspirant and former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr.
Marcos Jr. is the standard-bearer of Partido Federal ng Pilipinas. His party adopted the Davao City Mayor as the vice-presidential candidate that they will support in the Election 2022.
Currently, there are five (5) petitions filed before the Commission on Election (Comelec) against the presidential bid of former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr. His candidacy undeniably triggered the issues surrounding the Marcos regime and the alleged ill-gotten wealth of their family.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte also recently criticized Marcos Jr. saying that he is a “weak leader” when it comes to the character except for his surname. The Chief Executive also branded him as a spoiled child as an only son.
Amid the criticisms, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte called on their supporters to protect former Sen. Bongbong Marcos Jr. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, she also asked their supporters to protect their votes in the upcoming May 9 election.
According to the Davao City Mayor, she chose Marcos Jr. as her running-mate in the upcoming election because of his experience in politics. She also explained that she run for vice president and not for president because there are times that there is a need to stand behind another leader.
