VP bid ni Duterte sa 2022 polls, hindi iligal pero pananaw ng publiko ikukunsidera – Malakanyang

Robie de Guzman   •   September 28, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Iginiit ng Malakanyang na walang lalabagin sa Saligang Batas ang posibilidad ng pagtakbo bilang bise presidente ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa 2022 national elections.

Ginawa ng Palasyo ang pahayag matapos lumabas sa pinakahuling survey ng Social Weather Stations (SWS) na 6 sa 10 Pilipino ang naniniwalang labag sa Konstitusyon ang vice presidential bid ng pangulo.

Sa survey na ginawa mula Hunyo 23 hanggang 26 sa 1,200 respondents, lumabas na 60 porsiyento o 6 sa 10 Pilipino ang naniniwalang labag sa Konstitusyon ang kandidatura ng pangulo.

Lahat ng respondents sa major regions sa bansa ay ganito ang sentimyento. Hindi rin nagkakalayo ang opinion ng mga mahihirap, nasa katamtamang kalagayan at hindi mahirap ang pamumuhay.

Lumabas din sa SWS survey results na pinakamataas sa mga nagsabi na labag sa Konstitusyon ang kandidatura ng pangulo ay ang mga pinaka-hindi nasiyahan sa kanyang performance.

Ayon kay Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, hindi ipinagbabawal sa batas ang planong kandidatura ng pangulo bilang bise-presidente ngunit nakikinig naman aniya ito sa boses ng masa.

Kaya ang panawagan nito sa publiko, hintayin na lamang ang pinal na hakbang ng presidente sa Oktubre 1 hanggang 8 kung kailan nakatakda ang panahon para sa pagsusumite ng certificates of candidacy ng mga nagnanais kumandidato sa 2022 elections.

“Pero masasabi ko lang po, sensitibo po ang presidente sa pulso ng taumbayan, hintayin na lang po natin ang kaniyang pinal na desisyon,” ani Roque.

Noong Setyembre 23, pormal na nilagdaan ng pangulo ang certificate of nomination and acceptance para sa kanyang pagtakbo bilang bise presidente sa ilalim ng PDP-Laban faction na pinangungunahan ni Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

Ngunit bago pa man ito, marami nang personalidad at grupo ang nagsabing labag sa batas ang VP bid ng pangulo. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Rosalie Coz)
