Mayor Sara Duterte posts several appeals to supporters, media

Maris Federez   •   November 12, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Friday posted on Facebook several appeals to her supporters regarding the upcoming 2022 national and local elections.

Mayor Sara particularly appealed to her supporters and the members of the media who would camp out in front of the Commission on Elections office in Manila.

“Sa lahat ng aking mga taga-suporta, pati na po sa mga miyembro ng media — nakikiusap po ako sa inyo na sana ay huwag na kayong mag-camp-out sa labas ng Comelec,” Mayor Sara said.

“Nakikiusap din ako sa mga nasa probinsya na huwag kayo bumiyahe papunta Manila nandito lang po ako sa Davao City dahil sa sunod-sunod na pag-ulan at pagbaha,” she further appealed.

Duterte reiterated that camping out in front of Comelec is not necessary, considering that there are still the threats posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the country’s extreme weather conditions.

“Hindi na kailangan mag-camp-out pa dahil meron pang pandemya at ayoko kayong magkasakit. Ulan at init ng araw ang inyong kalaban. Isipin nyo rin po sana ang kalagayan ng inyong mga pamilya,” she warned.

The local chief executive, meanwhile, lauded her supporters, as well as the members of the media, for their dedication.

“Sa aking mga supporters, humahanga po ako sa tibay ng inyong puso. Sa mga kasapi naman ng media, humahanga rin ako sa inyong dedikasyon sa trabaho,” she said.

Duterte directed the media and her supporters to her social media pages for official statements, photos, and videos on certain issues. The same will also be distributed by her spokesperson. —/mbmf

Salceda on Mayor Sara running under PDP-Laban: ‘Unlikely’

Maris Federez   •   November 10, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The possibility of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte running under the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) in the 2022 national and local elections is now very unlikely, according to Albay 2nd District Representative Joey Salceda during a virtual presser Wednesday (November 10).

“Ayaw niya nga may gulo pa kasi sa COMELEC ang PDP, kaya obviously hindi siya dun tatakbo,” he said.

The solon said Mayor Sara will likely run under the Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-CMD).

Salceda added that Duterte could have filed her certificate of candidacy for the presidency had there been no hindrance that occurred during the filing period.

“That shows her unyielding firmness towards that purpose. There were hurdles put on her way […] May mga conditionalities, or whatever. So ngayon wala na yun. It’s simply there were hurdles, that’s why she did not file on the 1st day,” Salceda explained.

He, however, refused to specify the said hurdles against the young Duterte’s plans for the presidency.

Salceda also refuted claims that Mayor Sara is duplicating President Rodrigo Duterte’s stunt in 2016 when he was branded as the “last-minute candidate.”

“I violently disagree. She would have filed on the first day without those conditionalities […] I know that because that’s our chat,” he said.

He said there is nothing left to do but wait for further development on Mayor Sara’s political plans before November 15, the deadline for the filing of substitution of candidates for the 2022 elections.

Meanwhile, the PDP-Laban Cusi wing said it is on the lookout for Mayor Sara’s next moves.

“PDP Laban watches with keen interest the developments on Sara Duterte’s decision to withdraw her certificate of candidacy for Davao City Mayor, especially considering the public support she enjoys,” said DOE Secretary Alfonso Cusi, PDP-Laban President.

Cusi said that no matter what her decisions will be will surely affect the country’s political landscape.

“In any event, her actions, including any decision to run for a national elective office, will most certainly affect the political landscape,” he said. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Nel Maribojoc)

Mayor Sara Duterte likely to run for president — Salceda

Maris Federez   •   November 10, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will likely be running for the presidency in the 2022 national and local elections.

This was announced by the mayor’s close friend, Albay 2nd District Representative Joey Salceda in a virtual conference with reporters on Wednesday.

He did not offer any more detail but said that based on their online chat, the young Duterte will run for the presidency under her terms.

“She wants to run under terms. She never yielded a single inch. She will run as president under her terms,” Salceda said.

Salceda claimed having talked with Mayor Sara Tuesday morning before she withdrew her mayoral candidacy.

“That is the only logical conclusion to all the gyrations in politics inside the administration. And VP is definitely not an option,” he said. —/mbmf (from the report of UNTV Correspondent Nel Maribojoc)
