Paolo Duterte files COC for House seat in 2019
Presidential son and former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte has filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for Davao City 1st District representative in the 2019 elections.
Duterte was accompanied by his sister, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio, when he filed his COC at the local Commission on Elections office on Friday.
Duterte is still under investigation for graft and four other cases at the Ombudsman.
He resigned December last year, citing his failed marriage with his first wife and his alleged involvement in the 6.4-billion worth of shabu from China through Bureau of Customs. /je
