Pangulong Duterte, wala pang desisyon kung sino ang susuportahan sa 2022 elections – Malakanyang

Robie de Guzman   •   June 3, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Inihayag ni Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque ang pangalan ng ilang personalidad na posibleng basbasan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte bilang kandidato ng administrasyon sa 2022 presidential elections.

Kabilang sa mga binanggit ni Roque ay sina Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, Senador Bong Go, Senador Manny Pacquiao, dating Senador Bongbong Marcos, at Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

Ngunit paglilinaw ni Roque, wala pang desisyon ang Pangulo kung sino sa mga ito ang kanyang susuportahan.

Hindi rin aniya sang-ayon ang nakatatandang Duterte na tumakbo sa pagka-pangulo ang kanyang anak sa darating na halalan.

“Alam ninyo nung talagang kinausap ko siya diyan at wala pa siyang desisyon. Mayroon lang talaga siyang options na sinabi but as of now, siguro nakatutok pa rin ang presidente dito sa pandemiya, dito sa bakuna,” ani Roque.

Samantala, naniniwala naman ang Palasyo na hindi ipinagbabawal ng batas na tumakbo sa pagka-bise presidente si Pangulong Duterte kasunod ng resolusyong ipinasa ng partidong PDP-Laban na nag-uudyok sa punong ehekutibo na kumandidato sa 2022 election.

Ngunit sa ngayon, ayon kay Roque, ay pinag-iisipan pa ito ng Pangulo.

“Kung pinagbabawal po ang presidente na tumakbong VP (vice president), dapat po sinulat yan, nagkaroon ng teksto sa ating saligang batas na nagbabawal diyan pero since wala pong prohibition, it must be allowed,” ayon sa opisyal.

Samantala, sinabi naman ni Roque na walang nakikitang problema ang Pangulo sa PDP-Laban at nananatili pa rin namang acting president ng partido si Pacquiao.

Ito ay sa kabila ng nangyayaring tensiyon sa pagitan ng ilang miyembro nito kasunod ng pagpalag ni Pacquiao sa ipinatawag na national council meeting ng PDP-Laban kamakailan.

Go expressed hope that the bills would immediately be signed into law after hurdling the bicameral committee and be included in the budget for next year.

 

Duterte in good health, busy with paperwork — Go

Robie de Guzman   •   April 8, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte is in good health condition and busy with paperwork, Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said, dispelling rumors that the president suffered a mild stroke.

In a post on Facebook on Wednesday night, Go shared photos of him with Duterte to dismiss rumors circulating on social media about the president’s health and whereabouts.

“Sa mga may masasamang hangarin, wag muna kayo mag celebrate!! Nandito lang si Tatay Digong. Tambak ang trabaho,” said Go, a former long-time aide of Duterte.

“Hindi ito ang panahon ng pagsisisihan kundi panahon ng Pagtutulungan. Suot ko damit kong dilaw pero DU30 yan!!!” Go said, referring to the term “yellow,” which is associated with the Liberal Party.

“Sana tulungan na lang natin ang ating mahal na Pangulo para malagpasan natin ang crisis na ito bilang nagkaka-isang mamamayang Pilipino. Salamat po,” he added.

Go’s post followed rumors claiming that Duterte’s public address was canceled this week because he suffered a mild stroke.

The senator earlier disclosed that Duterte’s usual “Talk to the People” was postponed after some members of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) caught COVID-19.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the public speech was rescheduled because the “physical safety of the President remains our utmost concern.”

“In addition, the preparation for the Talk of the People address entails a number of staff complement and we also take due consideration of their well-being,” Roque added.
PSG Commander Jesus Durante III earlier confirmed that a number of his members were infected with COVID-19. Out of 160 members, only 45 cases remain active.

He, however, assured that these guards are not closely detailed with the president and that they are stationed around Malacañang grounds, making their exposure to possible COVID-19 cases inevitable. – RRD (with details from Correspondent Rosalie Coz)
