Duterte dynasty: Baste, Paolo, Sara running in 2019 polls
It’s a family affair in the upcoming elections as far as the First Family is concerned.
At least three children of President Duterte are seeking local posts in the upcoming midterm elections.
Sebastian “Baste” Duterte, the youngest son of the President, has filed his certificate of candidacy for vice mayor of Davao City. He will be the running mate of his sister incumbent Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte who is seeking reelection.
Duterte’s other son, Paolo Duterte, is gunning for a congressional seat in their hometown Davao City. The young Duterte earlier resigned as Davao City vice mayor last year amid controversies, including allegtaions linking him to drug smuggling.
Sara and Paolo have earlier filed their COCs for their respective positions.
