The Chinese team looks forward to their next match after..
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio revealed that senators Bong Go and Sherwin Gatchalian offered to be her vice president if she decides to run for presidency in the 2022 elections.
“I can confirm the people who have personally expressed their offer to run as my vice president: Senator Sherwin Gatchalian (and) Senator Bong Go,” Duterte-Carpio’s statement posted on her Facebook page read.
In the same post, the mayor denied her father President Rodrigo Duterte’s statement that Senator Imee Marcos went to Davo to express an intent to be her running mate.
“This is not true. She visited me in Davao last May 29 to personally relay her birthday wishes. So far, this is the only visit she has made to me in Davao,” Duterte-Carpio said.
She also clarified that there is no rift between her and the president nor between her and Senator Go, citing an online article and social media posts alleging the issue.
“I do not hold a grudge against Senator Go concerning his relationship with PRRD. I am not the keeper of the President, he is allowed to have friends as I am,” her statement read.
Duterte electoral plans
Duterte-Carpio has not laid out her plans for the national elections in 2022, despite the several calls for her to run for president.
Meanwhile, President Duterte has accepted his party, PDP-Laban’s endorsement for him to vie for the vice presidency. He, however, clarified that should the younger Duterte decide to run for the presidency, he will step back from the bid.
