Pres. Duterte: Inday Sara will not seek presidency




President Rodrigo Roa Duterte at the end of the day is a father to his daughter.

The Chief Executive in an exclusive with CNN Philippines said his daughter current Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio will not seek the Presidency in 2022.


Duterte reiterates that he would not allow his eldest child to seek the highest position of the land because he dreads the idea that Sara just like him would be bombarded with criticisms, should she become his successor in 2022.

“I told her, ‘No, do not run.’ She will not run kasi sabi ko maawa ako sa 'yo (because I’d just pity her). Ano nang gawin mo? Karaming isipin nitong mga u***, akala kasi nila bright sila (What will you do? These fools who think they are bright would have a lot to say) and they (will) come up with all sorts of scenarios,” Duterte said.

Ako ayaw ko. Ibang tao na lang, kasi bababuyin niyo lang anak ko (I don’t like that. Just look for another person because they would just assail my daughter),” he added.

The Chief Executive has time and time again repeatedly discouraged Sara from seeking the highest position of the land, saying that it will only “destroy” her.


The city mayor from Davao was quoted floating the ides that she might run for the position of President in 2022.

President Duterte said he has no plan to groom any successor.

“My party mates do not talk to me about politics. Alam nila yun kasi (They know that) I get peeved,” Duterte said. “‘Yung sinasabi nilang ‘yung anak kong si Inday, naaawa ako. Anak ko eh. Sabi ko, mamili tayo ng iba kung gusto ninyo if you want me there in the game (They want my daughter, Inday, to run but I pity her because she’s my daughter. I said look for someone else if you want me there in the game).”
