The 2022 elections may be more than a year and a half from now, but speculation’s swirling as to which politikos have cast a moist eye on the highest office in the land.

Manila Standard columnist Rudy Romero believes the presidential elections could be a four-way race, with three of the contenders women.

In his September 6 column, Romero named Vice President Leni Robredo, Senator Cynthia Villar and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as among the possible presidential contenders. He said Senator Panfilo Lacson could also run for president.

Romero said Robredo is a shoo-in as the Liberal Party’s presidential nominee, while Duterte is also a strong contender because her father is the President.

“Davao City’s mayor is young, has administrative experience, is professionally qualified—she is an Ateneo-trained lawyer. Most important of all, she will have the Duterte coalition machinery and resources supporting her,” he said.

Romero said Villar could run for president to “avenge” the loss of her husband, Manny in the 2010 presidential race. He said resources won’t be a problem for the senator because she is a billionaire.

As for Lacson, Romero said the former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief could run for president as there’s “no other strong male contender in sight.”

“If Lacson decides to go for another run for the presidency in 2022, he will be up against three powerful female opponents,” Romero said.
