After a renowned advertisement that says “Duterte For President,” the man of Davao finally broke his silence saying that he is not interested for running as a president in the next election in 2016.
In his interview in DZMM, Duterte abruptly said that being a president was not his concern due to his growing age. The man is already sixty-nine years old and is no plan to join the other politicians who will run as president next selection. He also told the interviewer that there are other smart and high leaders in Manila and said “Ibigay na lang sa kanila yan.”
He also puts in the picture that his twenty-two years as mayor in Davao was already enough for him. The city was now well-organized and less-crimes are seen which people of Davao says that it was their mayor who was the key to achieve what their city is right now.
The mayor also shared that there was “moneyed people” encouraging him to go for president, but he rapidly turned down all the offers due to his righteous principles.
