“A little over two years ago, I posted in the government website over the Internet that I was not interested in the Presidency,” Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said in a released statement. “Nothing has changed. I am comfortable where I am now.”
“If Inday Sara would want it (Davao City mayor post), she has the choice of running in 2016 or the next election,” Mayor Duterte added. “Personally, the earlier the better. I want to retire. I am tired. Give the presidency to the one who wants it. I don’t.”
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.
“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 (not filed) for Davao City mayor.
