Mahihirapang maging politiko! Duterte reveals Kitty an American citizen

Mar 20, 2017 @ 15:06

It looks like President Rodrigo Duterte’s youngest child, Veronica or Kitty, will have citizenship hurdles to overcome if ever she wants to follow in his footsteps and become a politiko.

In a speech before the Filipino community in Myanmar Sunday (March 19), Duterte revealed that Kitty is an American citizen.

“Iyong anak ko sa second wife ko na — Amerikana ‘yan kasi citizen. Filipino ‘yung itsura pero doon ipinanganak ‘yon,” he said.

Kitty’s mother, Cielito “Honeylet” Avanceña, worked as a nurse in the US before returning to the Philippines.

Under the 1987 Constitution, anyone running for a local elective office in the Philippines must be a Filipino citizen.

Meanwhile, those running for president, vice president, senator or congressman must be a natural born Filipino.
