Davao City’s Paolo Duterte will be seeking the 1st congressional district come May 2019 elections.
This was the revelation made by Mayor Sara Duterte who happens to be the chair of the regional political party Hugpong ng Pagbabago.
Mayor Duterte made the revelation in an interview Monday morning.
This afternoon, the former vice mayor confirmed his sister’s earlier statement.
“Yup I just heard about it from Inday (Sara). Let us cross the bridge when we get there. I am still in consultation with my supporters and my family,” Paolo said.
If indeed he would run for Congress, the eldest of the children of President Rodrigo Duterte would possibly face a Nograles in the person of PBA Partylist Rep. Jericho Nograles.
This would again revive the decades-long Nograles-Duterte rivalry started by their partriarchs President Duterte and former House Speaker Prospero Nograles.
