In a report by Inquirer, Panelo mentioned that Duterte-Carpio is even stricter than her father, President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Si Mayor Sara napaka-istrikto niyan. You know what the people there in Davao City said when she was Mayor, until now, mas istrikto pa iyan kay Mayor Digong,” Panelo said.
“I will not be surprised if she becomes President of this country after her father,” the Presidential Spokesperson added.
According to a report by ABS-CBN News, Panelo said that many Filipinos admire and support Duterte-Carpio. He added that there is a movement supporting the mayor to become the next president.

The Davao City mayor has addressed this issue earlier. According to her, it is not yet the right time to think about the Presidential race.
“Masyado pang malayo ang 2022… It’s not yet time to think about it,” she said.
“Iyan ay dapat ipagdasal for guidance and wisdom, dahil kung para sa iyo iyan, magiging madali dahil nandyan ang diyos na magbubukas lahat ng mga opportunities,” Duterte-Carpio added.
