Malacanang pushes Sara Duterte-Carpio as next President

Philippine politics is replete with instances where the child of former Presidents’,is eventually elected to the same post – Diosdado Macapagal –Glori Macapagal-Arroyo and Corazon Aquino- Benigno Simeon Aquino III.

So the idea of Rodrigo Roa Duterte – Sara Duterte-Caby the rpio is really not farfetched as long she is elected by majority of Filipino voters.

Last June 27, the Davao city Mayor Sara Carpio was adjudged to be the most qualified to succeed her father as the Chief Executive of the land after the latters term expires in 2022, all because she has “intellect” and “political will” Malacanang said.

"Sara [is fit to continue the President's policies and programs]. Pareho 'yung ugali ng dalawa eh. Pareho silang competent (They have the same character. They are both competent)," Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told Palace reporters

Panelo made the remark a day after Vice President Maria Leoor “Leni” Robredo announced the possibility of running for Presidency in 2022.

For Panelo, Robredo would have "no chance" of winning unlike Duterte-Carpio who would win "overhelmingly" if the presidential elections were held today.

"If the elections were today, walang chance [manalo si Robredo]. Eh 'di ba mababa naman ang rating niya (If the elections were today, Robredo would have no chance of winning the presidency because her rating is low)," he said.

"If she (Duterte-Carpio) runs now, [she will win] overwhelmingly," the Palace official added.

The elder Duterte has already warned her daughter Inday Sara not to pursue the Presidency for it will only ‘destroy’ her.

Atty. Panelo said the younger Duterte "might rise to the challenge" if there's a clamor for her to run.

"Depende siguro 'yan (Perhaps, it depends on the situation). The father doesn't want, pero (but) if people want her to run, she might rise to the challenge," Panelo said.

"She doesn't need convincing. People will make her run just like the father," he added.

Last Wednesday June 26, the Vice President was quoted saying “everything is possible”

The Presidential spokesperson said it would be “too early” to assume anything as he noted that there are "limitless possibilities" three years from now.

"If you talk about possibilities, gaya nang sinasabi ko (like what I keep on saying), we have limitless possibilities. For all we know, hindi natin alam ang mangyayari (we don't know what will happen) three years from now," Atty. Panelo said.
