DAVAO CITY—Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, this city’s longtime chief executive who is known for his tough brand of law enforcement, on Thursday night asked voters to make sure reelectionist Sen. Francis Escudero tops the senatorial race.

Or else…

“Do you still want to live? Then make him No. 1,” Duterte said in the Cebuano  dialect and apparently in jest during a campaign rally in the seaside community of Barangay Bucana Purok II-A in Talomo district on Thursday night.

Duterte cracked the joke in the presence of President Aquino’s  sister, Kris and another Team PNoy senatorial candidate, Grace Poe.

Kris Aquino on Thursday campaigned for Escudero and Poe in the Mindanao cities of General Santos and Davao.  She was also with the two candidates when they campaigned Cebu and Tacloban in the Visayas on Friday.

During the rally, Duterte  first made the mock threat when he endorsed the candidacy of congressional candidate Luis Bonguyan.

    Pasaway talaga si Kris Aquino! Inaagawan ang limelight mula sa mga Team
    PNOY candidates

    • Guest

      Hindi kailangan ng celebrity endorsers tulad ni Kris sa kampanya. Qualified candidates like Jamby will win based on integrity, track record and platform

      • alex ca

    What a dumb joke. That’s what really in his mind if given the chance. Like the Ampatuans mentality.
