Top business executives from esteemed companies shelled out P2,500 to personally hear Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte speak about how he transformed his turf from being the “Murder Capital of the Philippines” to becoming one of the most peaceful cities in the world.

There are rumors that Duterte might formally announce his presidential bid at the business luncheon, which is sponsored by top companies such as PLDT ALPHA Enterprise, AIG, Meralco and Aseana City.

In convincing business executives to pay for Duterte’s engagement, the event organizers stressed the importance of the upcoming elections and the role the mayor might play in it.

They said: “If the effective leadership of the most recent two presidents can be repeated, it is thought the country will reach a tipping point that will propel it to First World status by middle of the century, However, a bad choice in this election could unravel a decade of progress and send a generation of Filipinos back to squalor.”

Duterte has been eyed as a possible presidential contender owing to his strong showing in popularity surveys, placing third in the Pulse Asia poll next to Senator Grace Poe and Vice President Jejomar Binay.

Although he’s been coy about his political plans, a TV ad featuring Duterte has been leaked online, adding fuel to rumors that he will run for president in 2016.
