The ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) has declined to support the tandem of presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and vice presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
The presidential daughter disclosed this in a video message.
“Ang aking partido ay nakipag-alyansa at humingi ng suporta para kay Bongbong Marcos at para sa akin matapos kong tanggapin ang inyong hamon at panawagan. Tinanggihan ito ng PDP at naiintindihan natin ito,” she said.
The PDP-Laban Cusi faction, which is also the political party of President Rodrigo Duterte, is supporting the presidential bid of Senator Christopher “Bong” Go. It has not filled a vice presidential bet in the 2022 polls.
Duterte-Carpio has filed her certificate of candidacy for vice president under Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrat (CMD) while Marcos under Partido Federal ng Pilipinas.
