Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said Monday, March 8, that she will not solicit for campaign contributions from other people should she run for any position in next year’s election.
In her radio program, the mayor addressed issue related to her alleged political campaign contributions and solicitations.
The presidential daughter said ever since she ran for public office, as vice mayor and mayor of Davao City, she never solicited money from anyone, including businessmen.
“Pag abot nato sa October kung unsa man mahitabo, kung modagan ta sa bisan unsa nga posisyon, bisan unsa pa man na akong daganan, kung modagan man ko karong moabot nga 2022 nga elections, dili gihapon ko mag solicit. Dili gihapon ko magsulti sa ubang tawo nga magsolicit sila para motabang sa akong kampanya,” she said.
For the 2022 national and local elections, the Commission on Elections has set October 1 to 8 this year as the schedule for filing of Certificates of Candidacy for all elective positions.
Some groups have been urging Duterte-Carpio to run for president in next year’s poll.
