Congressman Joey Salceda Confirms Mayor Sara Duterte's Plan to Run for President in 2022

Congressman Joey Salceda, one of the most prominent leader of the ruling PDP-Laban party, confirmed in an interview with the media that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will be running for President in the highly anticipated 2022 national election. 


The confirmation was made by the congressman during an episode of Cignal TV's "Sa Totoo Lang" on OnePh news channel. 


Although Congressman Salceda already revealed the plans of the Davao City Mayor and Presidential daughter to the media, he also quickly clarified that Mayor Sara has been striking alliances with various other parties. 

Congressman Salceda was quoted as saying "May sources say she has been striking alliances with various other parties.... Mas maganda kung balansyado talaga because the tendency of the country ay kung taga-saan ang President, nandun lahat ng project," he added. 

Mayor Sara Duterte made some headlines earlier while celebrating her birthday when she met with former Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcoss, the son and namesake of the late dictator who ruled the country for almost two decades. 

The meeting between Mayor Sara Duterte and Sen. Bongbong Marcos has fueled speculations that the two are forming a formidable "north-south" tandem in the upcoming 2022 polls. 

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos was accompanied by Senator Imee Marcos, who did not elaborate to the media the topics of their meeting with the Davao City Mayor. 


Mayor Duterte on her part admitted that she talked about politics during the visit of the Marcos siblings in Davao City, but she did not elaborate further their topics. 

In a separate interview with the media, Mayor Sara was interviewed by TV5, who asked her about their discussions with the Marcos siblings but Mayor Sara just said "no comment."

Mayor Sara Duterte of Davao City is not a member of her father's Partido Demoratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan. Although Rep. Salceda already revealed the plans of Duterte, the ruling party PDP-Laban said they will support whoever will be anointed by the President. 

Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has been a frontrunner among potential presidential bets, based on a survey commissioned by Pulse Asia in April, saying 60 percent of Mindanao respondents preferred to elect her as her father’s replacement.
