Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte confirmed she met with the Marcos sibling over lunch in her city on Saturday, fueling rumors about a possible Duterte-Marcos tandem in 2022.
The Marcos siblings – former Senator Ferdinand “Bong Bong” Jr. and concurrent Senator Maria Imelda Josefa “Imee” – met Sara, the daughter of President Rodrigo Duterte, with the photo of the three making rounds over social media.
However, Sara did not disclose anything specific about the meeting.
“I confirm the picture taken yesterday here in Davao City,” she said in a statement released through the city information office. “I would like to thank Senator Imee and former Senator Bongbong Marcos for their birthday greetings, and my husband for the lunch he hosted.”Sara and Bong Bong have figured in recent polls on the top presidential picks for the May 2020 national polls. However, the Davao City mayor and the former senator have not made any categorical statement on their plans for 2022. SOVEREIGNPH
