Statement

On PRRD’s latest announcement


President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has clearly spoken: He will no longer aspire for the second highest post in the land, bowing to the will of the people, as reflected in the June 2021 Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey which showed contrary opinion for PRRD’s running for the Vice Presidency.

The Chief Executive would spend the remainder of his term guiding the country towards post-COVID-19 recovery.

Moreover, to ensure the legacy of his programs and projects and the continuity of his reform initiatives, the President would pro-actively campaign for his candidates and make sure that the conduct of the coming 2022 elections would be free, honest, peaceful and credible.
