Tuguegarao City, Cagayan – With a recent meeting of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte and Presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in Cebu City last Saturday, the speculations have once again boiled up for a possible tandem of the two.
However, President Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter on Sunday, Oct 24, has dismissed rumors about her running for a national post in 2022 and reassured the media that she will be supporting former Senator Bongbong Marcos in 2022.
The Davao City Mayor has also confirmed that she will only go for re-election in the polls next year.
Mayor Duterte said in a statement on Sunday, “No, I do not have plans to run for president.”
Duterte added that she and Marcos have only talked about her party – Hugpong ng Pagbabago and its plans to support him for his Presidential run.
In their meeting last week in Cebu, Duterte has mentioned that her family has close ties beyond politics with Governor Gwen Garcia and has confirmed that she will be visiting the province more in the coming years. TNF
