MANILA (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN): President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday (Jan 14) said that his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is not running for president.
Duterte reiterated that he had cautioned his daughter against seeking the presidency.
“They are urging my daughter to run. I told them my daughter is not running. I have told Inday not to run because I pity her that she will have to go through what I experienced, ” Duterte said in a speech at the inauguration of the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3.
The presidency is not a woman’s job, Duterte added.
“This is not for a woman. You know, the emotional set-up of a woman and a man is totally different. You’ll go nuts here. That is the sad, ” he said.
A recent Pulse Asia survey showed the Davao City mayor as the lead contender for the presidential race in the 2022 national elections. - Philippine Daily Inquirer/Asia News Network
