Pwede pero depende: Roque says Duterte resisting, but not rejecting, VP bid
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque insisted anew that President Rodrigo Duterte is not really closing his doors on a potential vice presidential run next year following his party’s endorsement.
The abogado said there’s still a chance for Duterte to heed the call of PDP Laban and his supporters.
“The President’s words are clear. I don’t have to construe or interpret. He is resisting – that is the word used ‘no. So ayaw po niya, pero hindi pa naman niya sinasabing hindi,” Roque added.
He again stressed that the waiting game could last beyond the filing of certificates of candidacy, with a deja vu scenario of his presidential bid possible via substitution.
Administration supporters are calling for a Duterte-Duterte tandem, composed of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as president and her father as vice president.
