There have been speculations going around that it is possible to see Vice President Leni Robredo, Senator Grace Poe, and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio running against each other in the Presidential election in 2022.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, KAMI learned that the female politicians have addressed the speculations. Reelectionist Senator Poe shared that her experience running as a president in 2016 must be put in the past already.
“I don’t know, siguro nakalipas na ‘yon sapagkat nabigyan na ako ng pagkakataon. Marami naman diyan ang pwede, maaaring ikonsidera ng ating mga kababayan. Kahit naman sa Senado, marami rin naman na tayong pwedeng maitulong,” Poe said.
According to a report by Inquirer, Vice President Robredo also commented about the issue. She shared that for now, she is focusing on her projects as the vice president.
“Iyong sa akin lang, magiging masama para sa akin kung ang iisipin ko 2022 kasi ang dami kong ginagawa bilang Pangalawang Pangulo,” Robredo said.
“Iyong sa akin kasi, iyong pagiging Pangulo, destiny iyon… Iyong kasaysayan natin nagpapakita na hindi ito napapaghandaan,” she added.
“Maraming nagbalak. Pero kapag para sa iyo ito, magiging sa iyo. Kapag hindi talaga ito para sa iyo, kahit anong gawin mo, hindi sa iyo ibibigay,” the vice president stated.
As previously reported by KAMI, Presidential daughter Duterte-Carpio has set a deadline for her to decide. She said that she will be revealing her plans for the Presidential bid in January 2021.
