‘No nat’l post for In­day Sara’

Manila Bulletin - - National News -

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte - Car­pio is not run­ning for any na­tional post in the midterm elec­tions next year, Pres­i­dent Duterte said Fri­day. “She will not run for sen­a­tor. She will not run for pres­i­dent. Be­lieve me. She's too wise for that,” the Pres­i­dent said dur­ing a press con­fer­ence in Davao City early Fri­day morn­ing. The Pres­i­dent's daugh­ter ear­lier said she was plan­ning to seek re­elec­tion as Davao City mayor. Her de­ci­sion comes even af­ter she ranked high in re­cent sur­veys of po­ten­tial se­na­to­rial con­tenders next year. She re­cently cre­ated a re­gional party, Hug­pong ng Pag­babago, which re­cently formed al­liances with other po­lit­i­cal groups. (Genalyn D. Kabiling)
