Martinez cited a circulating resolution wherein members of the aforementioned party are asking the incumbent president to seek the vice presidency in the upcoming elections.

“Yes, there is such a resolution that’s been going around PDP members. It’s going around the country now as PDP members are being consulted,” he said.

According to him, the first to adopt the resolution were the members of the PDP-Laban party from the National Capital Region.

The party said that it is calling President Duterte to run the post to allow for a continuity of policy that he has started in his present term as the country’s highest leader.

“We feel continuity is the sentiment on this PDP reso and the President, with the highest approval rating ever seen in an incumbent President, holds the key to future decisions of the party,” the house speaker noted.
