- There have been talks going around that Sara Duterte-Carpio will be the next president of the Philippines
- The Presidential daughter has spoken regarding this issue
- She has also set a deadline for her to decide on the presidential bid
Presidential daughter and incumbent Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has spoken about the issues that she will be running as a president in 2022. KAMI learned that Duterte-Carpio has set a deadline for her to decide.
In a report by Inquirer, Duterte-Carpio said that it will take her time to decide whether to run or not as the country’s next president.
“‘Yung pagtakbo kasi ng presidente hindi ‘yan overnight na decision,” she said.
“It needs money, machinery at pinaka importante sa lahat yung wisdom at guidance ng Panginoon. Siguro gawa nalang tayo ng deadline, January of 2021,” Duterte-Carpio added.
Duterte-Carpio also addressed the issues that her regional party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), is being used for her political agenda in the 2022 elections.
“HNP cannot endorse a presidential candidate since HNP is a regional political party. Nangyari lang naman na lumabas kami this senatorial election dahil marami ang humingi ng tulong,” the Davao City mayor said.
According to a report by Rappler, Duterte-Carpio urged her followers to stop labeling her as the “next president.”
“I wish they would not talk about me like that dahil 'yung mga gustong mag-president as early as now, ilalagay nila ako sa number 1 sa hate list nila," she said.
In a previous report by KAMI, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said that he won’t be surprised if Duterte-Carpio will become a president. He also shared that many Filipinos admire and support her.
Panelo added that there is a movement to launch Duterte-Carpio as the next president of the country.
Born on May 31, 1978, Sara Duterte-Carpio is the incumbent mayor of Davao city. She already served as the mayor of Davao City from years 2010 to 2013. From June 2007 to 2010, she became Davao City’s vice mayor.
