Will not seek Senate seat if Sara not running for president
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Friday refused to give up on Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte’s potential presidential run, as he still hoped for a miracle that the Davao City mayor would still file her certificate of candidacy (COC) for president on the last day of filing..
In a Laging Handa briefing, Roque said he continues to pray that Sara would listen to the public’s clamor for her to seek the presidency.
“Nagdadasal pa rin po tayo na sana po matuloy na ang kandidatura ni Mayor Sara (We are still praying that Mayor Sara’s candidacy [for president] will push through,” Roque said.
Roque made the statement, as he maintained that he would only file his COC for senator, in the event that Sara decides to accept calls for her to join the presidential race.
“So, kung matututloy ang paghain na ‘yan, baka mamaya kinakailangan magpaalam na ngayon.

But if that does not happen, I’ll see you on Monday),” he said. Read More
