Duterte on 2022 presidential race: ‘Inday is definitely out’
DAVAO CITY—President Rodrigo Duterte has discounted the possibility of his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, joining the presidential race in the upcoming elections.
In an interview during his visit to televangelist Apollo Quiboloy, the President said that his daughter has made up her mind not to join the 2022 presidential derby.
“Inday is definitely out, as she has said earlier, (in) the oft-repeated statements in so many interviews,” Duterte told reporters of the SMNI News Channel.
The President flew to Davao City on Friday after lending support to his favored senatorial bets who filed their respective certificates of candidacy.
Quiboloy said the President had wanted to “come for dinner” with him, just like in previous occasions, “for important talks.”
He said “talked about the future of the country, his future after a few months, and the coming elections.”
