Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio, daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte, announced on Thursday she will no longer run for presidency in the 2022 national elections.
President Rodrigo Duterte recently accepted the nomination to run as vice president under the PDP-Laban banner.
MANILA — Duterte-Carpio’s decision was due to a supposed agreement among their family that only one of them can gun for a national post at the elections.
“I am not running for a national position as we both agreed only one of us will run for a national position in 2022,” Duterte-Carpio said in a text message to media men.
Asked if her regional party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), will help PDP-Laban in next year’s elections similar to the support her party showed in 2019, Duterte-Carpio said: “No. I will not share my light this time.”
She later assured that politics does not affect her relationship with her father, and that it had no influence and is not taken personally. (HMP/The MiNT)
