Duterte says Sara won’t run for senator or president: Masyadong wais ‘yan!
By Prince Golez
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, will not run for the Senate in 2019, President Rodrigo Duterte said.
“Sinabi ko na sa inyo huwag kayong maniwala kay Inday. Jajammingan kayo lahat diyan. Hindi ‘yan magtakbo ng senador,” Duterte said early Friday upon his arrival at Davao International Airport in Davao City from Bali, Indonesia.
The chief executive also dismissed early reports that Duterte-Carpio would be running for president in 2022.
“Hindi ‘yan magtakbo ng presidente. Maniwala kayo sa akin. She’s too wise for that,” he said.
In August, Duterte-Carpio, who ranked 3rd to 5th in the recent Pulse Asia senatorial survey, announced she would seek reelection in 2019.
