Sara Duterte to run for president in 2022 if opposition backs her

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said on Saturday that she would run for president in 2022 if the opposition would also support her candidacy and help her win the election.

"Ang isang Pangulo may anim na taon lang para tumulong, di ko magagawa maayos ang trabaho kung hindi tayo magkaisa," Mayor Duterte, the daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte, told GMA News.

"If we want to lift our fellowmen out of poverty, we need all hands on deck working hard and not spend the next 6 years wringing each other's necks," she added.

Mayor Duterte also responded to the "Run, Sara, Run" activities that took place on Saturday.

"I understand where they are coming from, I too am anxious where we are going as a nation. I am always grateful that I have their trust and confidence. I am pleading to them to please allow me to run for President on 2034, if at that time there is something I can do to help the country," said the President's daughter.

Earlier in the day, calendars urging Sara Duterte to run for president in 2022 were distributed in Banawe Street, Quezon City. — DVM, GMA News
