Duterte-Carpio explained her decision to impose a motorcade ban in Davao City, saying she wants to “empathize” with those affected by the rising prices of commodities amid the increase in fuel costs.

“I am the mayor of Davao City. I am tasked to protect the interest of the Davaoeños and I believe with the pahirap na cause ng (issues caused by the) pandemic,” Duterte-Carpio said in an ambush interview.

“Pangalawa the increasing prices at ‘yong effect nito sa pahirap na naman ulit sa presyo ng ating basic commodities ay dapat po nakikiisa tayo sa mga kababayan natin who will most likely na ‘yung mga pinaka nasa baba sila ‘yong likely na pinaka maging vulnerable at mag suffer ng effects nito,” she added.

(Secondly, the increasing cost of fuel and its effect to the prices of basic commodities. So we should be as one with our countrymen who will most likely feel its impact.)

Asked if she will also not hold a motorcade in Davao City amid her vice presidential bid, Duterte-Carpio said: “Of course hindi kasi di ba I already said that we need to empathize with everyone who will most likely suffer because of the increasing prices and the effect of that war in Ukraine at sa Russia.”

Duterte-Carpio also said her attendance in motorcades outside Davao City is also subject to the availability in her schedule.

Presidential candidate Panfilo Lacson earlier expressed hope that Duterte-Carpio will reconsider the order “in the spirit of fair play.”

“The irony is that they’re the ones who have a liking for holding motorcades, in the spirit of fair play, she should not ban motorcades in Davao City…in other areas, they can hold motorcades,” Lacson said in Filipino.

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Isko Moreno Domagoso brushed aside the ban on motorcades in Davao City. On the other hand, fellow presidential candidate Leody De Guzman agreed with the directive.
