President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said he is not interested in running for another elective in 2022.
At a meeting of the joint National Task Force-Regional Task Force Ending Local Communist Armed Conflict in Tacloban, Duterte said that he’s already tired of politics.
Prior to this, the Chief Executive asked Senator Christopher Go, also his former long-time aide, if he’s joining the presidential race next year.
“Puro heneral ito,” Duterte said referring to the officials who shared the stage with him.
“Si Bong (Go) lang ang Presidente. Ayaw mo Bong? Mamili tayo, kasi ayaw ko rin. Pagod na ako,” he added.
This was not the first time the President teased Go about a possible presidential bid.
In a March 5 speech delivered in Cagayan de Oro City, Duterte praised the lawmaker and called him “presidente.”
