In a Facebook post, Tirol said she followed Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, who withdrew her candidacy for mayor on Tuesday.

“Since Inday Sara withdrew her candidacy, Inday Leah also withdrew her candidacy,” she said.

“To my beloved supporters, I hope you will understand my decision. We’ll do it next time around. Take care and God bless us all.”

Tirol did not disclose more details about her decision.

A source said Dominic Butalid, the son of former governor Rolando Butalid, may replace Tirol, but the party has yet to issue an official statement.

Tirol, known as Bohol’s Internet princess, is the daughter of former Bohol governor David Tirol and former Board Member Amalia Tirol.

Her desire to serve her fellow Boholanos convinced her to run for board member in 2010, but she lost.
