Durano-Led BAKUD Party of Cebu Supports BBM-Sara Tandem for 2022

The Durano-led Bakud local political party in the 5th District of Cebu has formally announced its support for the BBM-Sara tandem in the upcoming 2022 national elections. 

The Barug Alang sa Kauswagan ug Demokrasya (BAKUD) Party formally thrown its support to the leading UniTeam tandem of former senator Bongbong Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. 

This was announced to the media by BAKUD Chairman Emiretus and Danao City Mayor Ramon "Nito" Durano III during a press conference on Tuesday, January 25, announcing that their group will be endorsing the Marcos presidency. 

BAKUD is reportedly composed of seven incumbent Mayors out of the 11 Local Government Units, with six Vice-Mayors, 57 out of 90 Councilors, and 115 out of 207 Barangay Captains in the Fifth District of Cebu. 

According to Mayor Durano, their support to the BBM-Sara Uniteam, acknowledges the long and tested alliance and friendship of the Duranos and the Marcoses. He also said that BBM is a very dear friend to the party most especially to him. 

"I have known BBM for more than four decades. Being in the company of BBM, I have known him as a very good person. Ligdong nga pagkatawo, sa ato pa’ng panultihon. Dili pala-away, at hindi mayabang," Durano said.

Bakud political party, the rival of One Cebu in the Province, foresees that BBM shall be a healing President who will unite the country and help it recover from the pandemic as Bakud commits its full force to work all-out for the victory of the BBM-Sara Uniteam. 

Danao City Mayor Durano also clarified that BAKUD's move to support Marcos and Duterte is a unilateral decision. He said that the party will support the two even if there is no guarantee that they will be endorsed also by the BBM-Sara UniTeam. 

The support of the Bakud local party in Cebu is a welcome development for the BBM-Sara Tandem in the vote-rich province of Cebu because they already got the commitments from Bakud rival, Cebu Fifth District Rep. Duke Frasco and Liloan Mayor Christina Garcia-Frasco who served as Mayor Sara's spokesperson. 

Rep. Duke Frasco was tasked by Bongbong Marcos to head the campaign for UniTeam in the Province of Cebu, after declaring their support last November 2021. The dominant local political party in Cebu, One Cebu of Gov. Gwen Garcia has yet to announced their support to any presidential bet.
