Miriam Santiago’s PRP adopts Sara Duterte as VP bet for 2022 polls
MANILA, Philippines — The People’s Reform Party (PRP), which was founded by the late Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, has adopted Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio as its vice-presidential candidate for the 2022 national elections, PRP president Narciso Santiago Jr., confirmed Wednesday.
He said party members unanimously adopted Duterte-Carpio as their vice-presidential candidate, as the party has no official candidate for the second-highest post.
The party also has not endorsed nor supported any vice presidential bet yet for the upcoming elections.
“Among the candidates for the positions of president and vice president, Sarah exemplifies Miriam’s character, vision, honesty, courage, and commitment to public service,” Santiago said in a statement.
“We strongly believe that Sarah will never fail the Filipino people so let us give her the chance to serve us well,” he added.
