Vice presidential candidate Senator Bong Go confirmed on Tuesday that the candidates in his political party, Partido ng Demokratikong Pilipino-Laban (PDP-Laban), will be going through major changes.
MANILA, Philippines — This announcement came after the President Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter Sara Duterte-Carpio has officially withdrawn her certification of candidacy (COC) for reelection as Davao City mayor.
“Maaring may magbabago sa mga tatakbong posisyon sa mga darating na araw. Ang problema po dyan kailangan umiwas. Gustuhin ko man pong magsilbi sa inyo bilang bise-presidente dahil sa kagustuhan ng mahal na pangulo, kailangan ko pong umiwas.” Go said in his speech.
(There may be changes in the next few days on candidate positions, the problem is I need to avoid something. I wanted to serve you as vice president because it was what the President wants but I need to avoid it.)
“Malalaman niyo po sa mga darating na araw.” he added. (You will know about it in the next few days.)
The PDP-Laban’s standard bearer Senator Ronald “Bato” de la Rosa has already said that he would be willing to step down as the party’s presidential bid should Sara decide to take his place. (HMP/JuanManila)
