Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said this in response to queries over Duterte’s supposed plan to seek the vice presidency.

“I think I will quote the President, he leaves it to God,” Roque said in an online briefing.

FEATURED STORIES

Previously, Roque said Duterte is focused on the government’s COVID-19 vaccination program amid calls for the Chief executive to run for vice president.

Some members of Duterte’s political party PDP-Laban had urged him to run as vice president in the 2022 polls.  

PDP-Laban’s acting president, Senator Manny Pacquiao, however, said the resolution among the party members calling for Duterte’s VP bid was “not authorized.”
