According to One Cebu leader Winston Garcia, the One Cebu Party reached its decision to throw its support behind Mayor Rody Duterte, the PDP-Laban standard-bearer, after meeting with the mayor on Saturday.
During the meeting with Mayor Duterte, the party decided to support the candidacy of Mayor Duterte and wanted to bring a Bisaya to Malacanang. During an interview with the media, One Cebu's Winston Garcia was quoted as saying "WinNer ta, Duterte pa."
The One Cebu Party's backing of Mayor Duterte was reached after an extensive and thorough consultation with members and the burgeoning supporters of the party.
Mayor Duterte was informed of One Cebu's decision to support his candidacy, as a response, the mayor stated that his opponents might be panicking right now after One Cebu's endorsement of his candidacy.
As part of One Cebu's support of Mayor Duterte, the leader of the party promised to provide what Cebuanos did during the 2004 national elections when the province delivered the one-million vote difference for former Pres. Arroyo.
Cebu Province is considered as the country's richest-vote province with more than 2.7 million registered voters. Although One Cebu Party declared their support to Mayor Duterte as president, some members of the party preferred Bongbong Marcos instead of Sen. Cayetano as their Vice President. Leaders of One Cebu in the fourth district already announced their support to Sen. Bongbong Marcos.
