Davao del Sur Governor Douglas Cagas will not run for reelection if Bureau of Corrections Director General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa challenges him.
According to Politiko’s source, Cagas has given Dela Rosa his word that they will not face each other in the 2019 gubernatorial race should the former Philippine National Police chief runs for governor.
It remains to be seen if Cagas will run for another post since he’s only on his first term as governor.
Dela Rosa has said he is considering running for governor in 2019.
However, he’s still awaiting word from President Rodrigo Duterte whether he should campaign for a local post or for senator.
