PFP was adopting Sara Duterte as its vice-presidential candidate in the 2022 elections.
PFP — The Partido Federal ng Pilipinas was adopting Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as its vice-presidential candidate in the 2022 elections.
On Saturday, the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas decided that presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will adopt Mayor Sara as his vice-presidential candidate in the 2022 elections.
The party issued a resolution on Saturday afternoon adopting Mayor Sara and endorsing her for vice president in 2022. This quickly followed Mayor Sara’s filing of her certificate of candidacy (COC) as substitute for Lakas-CMD aspirant Lyle Uy at the Commission on Elections (COMELEC).

PFP Secretary-General Thompson Lantion also confirmed the said resolution, saying “yes” in a text message sent to Rappler when asked if PFP will adopt Mayor Sara as vice president.
For Lakas-CMD’s part, party chairman Senator Bong Revilla said on Saturday that they’re “in the process of formalizing the adoption” of a standard-bearer who Mayor Sara will be running with as her president.
“Abangan po natin ang Dream Tandem na aakay sa bansa tungo sa hinahangad nating pagbangon mula sa pandemya at tuloy-tuloy na progreso,” Revilla said.
Bongbong told SMNI earlier on Saturday that a Marcos-Duterte tandem will be a “strong tandem” and ideal for him and other allied parties.
Prior to this, Bongbong said on Friday that he wasn’t keen on term-sharing for the presidency with Mayor Sara in the 2022 elections. According to him, such arrangement will not do the country good.
