Risa Hontiveros: No ill will towards Sara Duterte

Oct 12, 2017 @ 17:40

Senator Risa Hontiveros on Thursday said she harbors “no ill will” on Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio after the latter denounced her for being ingrate.

Duterte-Carpio described in her Facebook account how Hontiveros “pestered” her during the May 2016 elections in her bid to get votes from Davaoenos.

“I am saddened by Mayor Sara Duterte’s recent remarks against me, especially since we have had several friendly interactions over the years,” Hontiveros said.

“I am grateful for her support during my election campaign and I have honored that support by defending women’s and gender rights, health, human rights, and our country’s democracy,” the senator said.

She added, “I harbor the Mayor no ill will and I wish her well. But this is not a question of loyalty. This is a matter of service, of consistency and of principle, and the defense of the rule of law and human rights. I am sure, as a fellow public servant, she understands that.”
