Davao City Mayor Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte filed his Certificate of Candidacy for Davao City Mayor Thursday October 15,2015.
After all the speculations of running not running, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte finally ended all
hopes for his Presidential candidacy.
On Thursday, Davao City Mayor’s executive assistant Bong Go, filed on his behalf his Certificate of Candidacy for Mayor. Duterte reiterated his not running for president in the 2016 Philippine election and will just seek re-election as Davao City Mayor.
In a statement, the hard hitting Davao Mayor said “No is No. Hindi ako tatakbo, ang titigas ng ulo nyo”.
Just yesterday, Duterte’s supporters saw a glimmer of hope when his daughter Inday Sara Duterte posted a picture of her with a shaved hair saying “para sa pagbabago”. The photo ignited speculations and raised the hope for his possible presidential bid. Many supporters even asked people to join Inday Sara and shave their hair also to convince Mayor Duterte to run.
But with the latest development, it seemed, the deal is already sealed. No presidential bid for Duterte but re-election instead.
