MINDANAO GROUP PUSHING LENI ROBREDO-SARA DUTERTE TANDEM

By ROGER M. BALANZA

A big group in Mindanao is all the way for Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte for vice president but is junking her tandem in the UniTeam former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, for VP Leni Robredo in the presidential race in the May polls.

 Albay Rep. Joey Salceda on television on Friday said the group is spearheaded by a “strong” political family in Mindanao.

In One News’ “Sa Totoo Lang” Friday (February 11), Salceda described the Mindanao group as a “parallel org” supporting the all-female team of Sara and Leni.

Like many other PDP-Laban stalwarts, Salceda had pushed for Sara running for president. He announced his support for Robredo after Sara Duterte slid down to the vice presidency with Bongbong as her president.

 Sara said she respects the decision of Salceda to support Robredo instead of her running mate.

“We will support Cong. Joey Salceda with whatever direction in politics he takes. He is a friend,” she said .
