President Duterte To Davao City Mayor Sara: “Do not run for president”.
President Rodrigo Duterte said that he asked his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, not to run for president in next year’s elections.
It seemed that the proposed “Duterte-Duterte” tandem in next year’s elections may not push through.
President Duterte told Pastor Apollo Quiboloy in an interview that Sara wouldn’t get anything from being the Chief Executive apart from a “sense of fulfillment”.
“Pero si Inday, kagabi man ako dumating, si Inday kinausap ko talaga kagabi. Do not run, do not ever commit the mistake of running for the presidency. I do not mean to insult the Filipino people. Wala ka talagang makuha, wala para sa iyo, except for one thing, yung sense of fulfilment mo sa kapwa mo na may nagawa ka. Aside from that, it’s an empty,” President Duterte said.
The President had previously shot down calls for Sara, who continued to emerge as the top contender in Pulse Asia surveys for president, to run for the said position.

President Duterte also said that the presidency wasn’t for a woman, adding that there’s nothing to gain from the presidency aside from a “sense of fulfillment”.
“Unless magtakbo ka ng presidente tapos mangurakot ka, you can become a billionaire or millionaire… Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Knowing you, maawa ako sayo magtrabaho ka, ang sweldo 200’,” President Duterte said.
President Duterte initially said that he didn’t see anyone deserving to continue what he had accomplished. However, he eventually said that he may publicly name those aspirants “when the time comes”.
