Lakas CMD vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Wednesday again insisted Partido Federal ng Pilipinas standard-bearer Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is her only choice for president despite several supporters linking her to other presidential candidates.
In a short video statement released this afternoon, Duterte re-affirmed her decision to support running-mate Marcos buoyed by the commitment partaken by her parties Lakas-CMD and Hugpong ng Pagbabago.
“I intend to honor the commitment of my parties—the Lakas-CMD and Hugpong ng Pagbabago—that is to support Apo Bongbong Marcos as president,” Duterte said.
Duterte recalled that the formulation of UniTeam was a product of their shared vision for all Filipinos—which will start by forging unity to strengthen our country and move every Filipino’s dream forward.
“When we agreed to form the UniTeam of Bongbong Marcos and SaraDuterte, we both agreed to run together with the singular purpose of improving the lives of the Filipinos and making the Philippines a stronger country,” Duterte said.
Duterte is a constant frontrunner in the vice presidential surveys conducted by various polling bodies. But as she continuously leads preference polls, her supporters have also been forging tandems associating her with other presidential hopefuls.
Overwhelmed by the massive support she is receiving, the mayor thanked her supporters for showing their “confidence to as a leader.
