Davao City Vice Mayor Bernard Al-ag is no longer seeking any elective position in the 2019 midterm elections.
This after he was informed by the leadership of the Hugpong ng Pagbabago that a candidate for vice mayor has already been chosen and that he was not it.
In a press conference at his office Monday morning, October 15, Al-ag confirmed that another Duterte is running.
Al-ag did not name the new Duterte though. Youngest presidential son Sebastian is rumored to be joining politics and is the one running for vice mayor.
Al-ag clarified though that his decision to take a respite from politics was not because of another Duterte running.
He said that regardless of whether a Duterte is the chosen candidate for vice mayor or not, he would always abide by the decision of the HNP leadership.
