MANILA, Philippines — “I will not share my light this time.”

Davao City mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio had this to say Thursday when asked if her regional party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), will extend support for the ruling PDP-Laban party in the upcoming 2022 national elections.

Duterte-Carpio made the remark after her father, President Rodrigo Duterte, accepted the nomination of PDP-Laban as its vice presidential bet in next year’s elections.

Duterte-Carpio is the chairman of the HNP while President Duterte serves as the chairman of PDP-Laban.

FEATURED STORIES

Duterte’s role as PDP-Laban chairman, however, remains in question after he was ousted by the group led by Senator Manny Pacquiao—a move that is not acknowledged by the faction led by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi where the President is a part of.

The Davao City mayor added that she will no longer seek the presidential post after her father’s acceptance of the vice-presidential nomination.

“Yes, I am not running for a national position as we both agreed only one of us will run for a national position in 2022,” Duterte-Carpio said in a text message.

Duterte-Carpio stressed  that her relationship with her father will however remain “the same as it was before.”

“Our politics do not interfere with our familial relationship. Iba ang trabaho, iba ang pamilya. Walang personalan,” Duterte-Carpio said.
