MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Sara Duterte has declared she will run for office again “in the next elections.”

Duterte revealed her political plan during a flag-raising ceremony in Barangay Bago Gallera, Davao City on Monday.


“Narinig ko na sinabi ng aking kapatid, si Mayor Baste (Sebastian Duterte), at ng aking mas matandang kapatid, si Congressman Pulong (Paolo Duterte), na hindi sila tatakbo. Baka hindi sila tatakbo sa susunod na eleksyon, kaya’t narito ako sa inyong harap dahil mangangampanya ako sa inyo dahil tatakbo ako sa susunod na eleksyon,” Duterte said in a speech in Bisaya.


(I heard that my sibling, Mayor Baste, and my elder sibling, Congressman Pulong, mentioned that they won’t run. Maybe they won’t run in the next election, so that’s why I am here with you. I will campaign for you since I will run in the next election.)

Duterte, however, did not specify what position she would be running for.

Pressed for details, the Office of the Vice President has not clarified Duterte’s announcement but said that her visit to Barangay Bago Gallera was “spontaneous.”

The upcoming national and local elections are scheduled for May 2025; however, Duterte’s tenure as Vice President extends until 2028.
