‘Sa-Bong’ tandem looms

LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — Another surprise in the political landscape was unveiled on Saturday, October 2 as Senator Bong Go unexpectedly filed his candidacy for vice president which may compel presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to run for president.

Go had earlier confirmed asking Duterte’s eldest daughter to be her vice president should she decide to seek the presidency in 2022.

Some political observers theorized that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte may eventually drop his plan to seek the second-highest post in the land in 2022.

Duterte accompanied Go to the Commission on Elections but did not say what would happen to his own plan to run for vice president.

Go is running under the ruling PDP-Laban political party, a faction of which earlier endorsed President Duterte as its vice presidential bet.

The neophyte senator was initially endorsed to be the nominee to succeed Duterte but Go flatly rejected the endorsement. (ai/mtvn)
