Inday Sara with father President Duterte
By Junex Doronio
CEBU CITY — Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has on Friday finally said “yes” to the nth query whether she will run for president in 2022 or not.
Even if she hastened to add that her answer is not yet final but her body language indicated on Friday that she was just as excited as her supporters waiting for her to emerge from a closed-door meeting with Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia at the provincial Capitol.
The feisty Davao City mayor claimed the discussions did not touch politics, but she claimed to have told Garcia she would be back in Cebu soon with her Hugpong Ng Pagbabago party to further consult supporters.
Visibly touched by the warm welcome of Cebuanos, Inday Sara thanked them for putting up “Run, Sara, Run” tarpaulins in Cebu and other localities for “their trust and confidence in me.”
“Ang importante sa pagkakaron is mahibal an namo kung unsay ginahunahuna sa mga tawo ug unsay gusto sa mga tawo (What is important now is that we know the sentiments of the people and what they really want),” Duterte-Carpio said. (ai/mtvn)
