Duterte officially accepts PDP-Laban nomination to run for VP in 2022 polls
MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has formally accepted his nomination by a PDP-Laban faction to run for vice president in the 2022 national elections.
Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi, who is leading a camp within the ruling political party, released a photo on Thursday showing Duterte signing the certificate of nomination and acceptance (CONA).
The PDP-Laban likewise released a photo of the signed CONA.
Earlier this month, the Cusi-wing PDP-Laban officially proclaimed Duterte as its vice-presidential candidate for the 2022 elections as well as Senator Bong Go as its standard-bearer.
However, Go has so far rejected the nomination.
On the other hand, the PDP-Laban faction led by Senator Koko Pimentel has nominated Senator Manny Pacquaio as its presidential candidate in the upcoming polls.
