MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Sara Duterte on Monday chose to remain silent on her future political plans even after emerging as a top choice for President in a recent Pulse Asia survey.

According to Duterte, she instead would like to focus on her current work as Vice President and education secretary, rather than discussing her future plans in politics.


“Napakalayo pa kasi ng 2028 para natin pag-usapan sa ngayon (it’s still too far ahead, 2028, for us to discuss it now),” she told reporters in a chance interview.


“What we’re doing now, and what we all need to do, is to work first and contribute to nation-building,” she added.

Most preferred

In a recent survey conducted by Pulse Asia, Senator Raffy Tulfo and Duterte emerged as the most preferred presidential candidates in 2028.

Tulfo garnered a 35 percent preference share among the respondents, while Duterte almost tied at 34 percent.

Meanwhile, former Vice President Leni took the third spot with 11 percent.


Earlier this year, Duterte sparked questions about her political plans after declaring that she will run for office “in the next elections” in a speech in Davao.

But Duterte later claimed that there was merely a “confusion” in her speech and that the public interpreted her statement in a way they wished to comprehend it.
