PANGASINAN (Philippines News Agency) – More or less 263 vehicles turned out in different areas north of Manila over the weekend to prod Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Z. Duterte to run for president in the 2022 national elections.
Joining the simultaneous motorcades in Pangasinan, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, and La Union on Jan. 31 were members of a volunteer support group called “Inday Sara Duterte Ako (ISDA)” on board private vehicles, public utility vehicles, motorcycles, and bicycles.
Despite Mayor Sara’s earlier statements that she has no intention of running for president nor would be a late entry as his father, President Rodrigo R. Duterte, was in 2015, the group urged the former to heed their call and run for president in 2022.
Motorcade organizers vowed to continue their advocacy to convince the latter to accept the challenge.
A GMA News Online report on Jan. 30 said calendars urging Mayor Sara to run for president were distributed to several vendors in Banawe Street, Quezon City.
The calendar reportedly has Mayor Sara’s photo captioned, “Run Sara, Run for President 2022.”
In December 2020, the Presidential daughter led an early preference poll for the 2022 presidency.
Results of the Pulse Asia survey conducted from November 23 to December 2 showed that one of four Filipinos would support a probable presidential bid by Mayor Sara. (PNA)
