Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte said that she understands why her father doesn’t want her to run for the presidency in 2022.
“Siguro alam niya kung gaano kahirap ang trabaho ng isang president. It’s not easy. It consumes the whole of your life and the whole of your time, days and nights. It’s like the work of a mayor magnified 1 million times,” Duterte-Carpio told reporters.
While Inday said that she doesn’t really have plans to seek the highest position in the Philippines, she still cannot predict what’s gonna happen in the future.
“Hindi natin hawak yung mangyayari sa buhay natin. Hindi natin alam ang mangyayari bukas,” she said.
Several days ago, President Rodrigo Duterte said that he doesn’t want Inday to run in the national elections.
“If I know Inday, hindi ’yan tatakbo ng pagka-presidente,” Duterte said.
“Wise ’yan si Inday. She just wants to shake the tree and get rid of the dry leaves and everything. Hindi ako papayag na tatakbo,” he added.
