President Duterte said in an interview with Pastor Apollo Quiboloy that he thought the electorate should look for these qualities when casting their vote in the 2022 elections on May 9.

According to the President, his successor should be a lawyer who is decisive, compassionate, and a good judge of character.

Ang — ‘pag ganoon, huwag kang matakot but — basta kaila… Ang ano nga is, hindi naman ako nagsabi it’s the best quality, but one of the good qualities of a president sana abogado,” the President said. “Isang tingin mo lang maka-decide ka na kaagad, and the repercussions, alam mo na kung ano.

The President has not endorsed any presidential candidate for the 2022 elections, and Malacañang said that the President might “stay neutral” up to the last minute.
