MANILA, Philippines Presidential aspirant Senator Panfilo Lacson has praised President Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Bong Go for choosing “peace as their path” as they withdrew their respective certificates of candidacy (COCs) for the May 2022 elections.

Both Duterte and Go on Tuesday formally dropped out from next year’s senatorial and presidential derby, respectively.
