Pres. Rodrigo Duterte addressed the rumor that his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will run for the presidential position in 2022; and said a woman is not suitable to be a president.
During his speech for the Skyway Stage 3 inauguration on January 14, Thursday, the president mentioned that he discouraged Inday Sara from running for his current position.
“My daughter, inuudyok naman nila. Sabi ko my daughter is not running. I have told Inday not to run kasi naawa ako sa dadaanan niya na dinaanan ko,"
The president also said that he does not think that the presidency is for women, based on emotional coping mechanisms.
"Hindi ito pambabae. Alam mo, the emotional set-up of a woman and a man is totally different. Maging gago ka dito. "
Currently, Inday Sara is the mayor of Davao City. Then, in a recent survey, she leads the presidential candidates for the upcoming 2022 elections. Sen. Grace Poe and Bongbong Marcos got second place; Mayor Isko Moreno is third; Sen. Manny Pacquiao is in fourth place; and Vice President Leni Robredo landed in the fifth spot.
Moreover, the president made it clear that he will not be seeking to extend his term. He said that even if it would be given to him on a silver platter or he would be given a free ten-year extension, he would not accept it.
“Maski ibigay mo sa akin in a silver platter, maski ibigay mo sa akin libre another 10 years, sabihin ko sa iyo…iyo na lang ‘yan. Tapos na ako,” Pres. Duterte said.
Recently, the Palace denied the allegation that the reason why they are pursuing Charter change is for the term extension of government officials.
Pres. Rodrigo Duterte was succeeded by her daughter as the mayor of Davao City. He was 71-years old when he started his term as the President of the Philippines.
Currently, the Duterte administration is focused on resolving the pandemic issues. Earlier, Pres. Duterte declared that the government officials will be the last to be given vaccines. He said that the frontline workers will be prioritized. Before 2020 ended, the president announced the new quarantine classifications for the month of January.
