Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque bared that the President gave a message on the issue of politics.

As of 5:46 kahapon (Wednesday) po ng hapon, heto po ang huling mensahe ng Presidente tungkol sa isyu ng pulitika: ‘Things are clear now, I will run as vice president’,” Roque said during the Presidential press briefing.

According to Roque, the President’s motivation for running for vice president next year was his “unfinished business” with the problems of corruption and illegal drugs.

Roque’s statement came after presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte wrote a Facebook post wherein she spilled the beans on the alleged background maneuverings of her father and his close aid, Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go.

According to Mayor Sara, her father and Senator Go have a private agreement to run in the 2022 elections as vice president and president, respectively. She also asked the two to “stop talking” about her.

Meanwhile, Roque was asked whether or not he thought the President can still serve another six years in office should he win as vice president in the 2022 elections.

According to Roque, that was a challenge of destiny that President Duterte will face. Roque also said that it’s the right of every Filipino to run for public office in the country.

Yan ay hamon ng tadhana nq sinasagot ng ating Presidente. Tignan na lang po natin kung ano mangyayari between now ang October 8,” Roque said.

The filing of certificates of candidacy (COC) for the May 2022 national elections was from October 1 to 8, as scheduled by the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
