Mayor Rodrigo Duterte: I Am Running For President

It’s official: Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte might run for the presidency after all.

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano confirmed on Saturday night that it is a Duterte-Cayetano tandem for the 2016 elections.

Duterte has been firm in his stance against running for the country’s highest post, saying that it was not his ambition and that he wanted to retire from public life for good.

Earlier, however, Duterte was reported to have said that he was finally open again to the possibility of running for president.
