Mayor Duterte now on private jet to Manila

Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is reportedly on a private jet bound for Manila after his daughter Sara Duterte-Carpio filed her certificate of candidacy for Davao City mayor. This development brings hope to supporters of Mayor Rodrigo who are calling for his presidential bid. “Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on board a private plane bound to Manila,” The Philippine Star said.

“Digong, gahulat ko sa imuha. To all my fellow Filipinos, you will make him President, otherwise, lagot kayo lahat sa akin. Tandaan niyo ang araw na ito,” her daughter said with a photo of her COC for Davao City mayor.

“A private jet has flown to Davao City to pick up Mayor Duterte on the way to Manila,” Duterte friend and supporter Manny Piñol said. “Sara Duterte-Carpio, daughter of Davao City Mayor Rody Duterte whose refusal to run for Mayor has waylaid plans to convince her father to run for President, has agreed to run for Mayor of Davao City. Earlier today, her brother, Paolo, filed his Certificate of Candidacy for Vice Mayor.”

Piñol added that the filing of the COCs of the siblings now clear the way for the Presidential run of the older Duterte who in three previous instances has pointed to the refusal of Sara to take over the mayorship as the reason behind his refusal to run for President.


Bong Go, Executive Assistant of Mayor Duterte said over DZMM radio that the mayor was all the time in Davao. Go added that that COC of Sara Duterte-Carpio was not filed to local Comelec. He added that Sara only planned to file his COC if Mayor Duterte will cancel his candidacy for Davao City mayor.
