She added that her party had 10,000 scholars in the Davao Region.

The Dumper Party candidate, meanwhile, highlighte­d some of the assistance she provided in the city in terms of livelihood and infrastruc­ture.

The lawmaker said that her party had enacted 101 bills, of which seven were already signed by President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Mao nang magsakit gyud ang akong buot nga ingnon lang ko ni Enchong nga wala koy gibuhat (That is why I was hurt with the accusation of Enchong that I did nothing in my position),” Bautista-Lim said.

She revealed that the actor reached out to her after the latter criticized her wedding in 2021 with her husband, Jose French “Tracker” Lim, a businessma­n and the party’s second nominee for the party.
