Philippines sceptical as Duterte daughter denies presidential bid

Aljazeera says Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter and heir apparent has declared that she will not run for the presidency in May 2022 but many remain sceptical after the months of meetings she has held with the country’s major political blocs over the past few months.

Sara Duterte-Carpio, who is currently mayor of Davao, said on Thursday that with her father’s decision to run for vice president, she would not run for the top job.

“I am not running for a national position as we both agreed only one of us will run for a national position in 2022,” Duterte-Carpio said in an interview and a separate statement to the media.
