“We have already declared and at this point in time, there is no turning back,” Senator Panfilo Lacson said yesterday in reaction to reports that President Rodrigo Duterte is running for vice president in the 2022 election.
“That’s good to know so that we are not guessing. It does not affect my resolve anyway,” Senate President Vicente Sotto said.
The Senate leader will go against Duterte in the May 2022 elections while Lacson will vie for the presidency.
“It won’t matter to my and SP Sotto’s determination to run in the May 2022 national elections. We have already declared and at this point in time, there is no turning back,” Lacson said.
