The election is over and Mayor Inday Sara Duterte, being the leader of Hugpong Pagbabago, is now hounded by intrigues surrounding the selection of the next House Speaker.
One rumor is that Inday Sara recommended Rep. Martin Romualdez as the Speaker of the House. Another rumor is that Pulong Duterte will vie for the House speakership too.
Inday Sara also answered on the question if she will accept Bebot Alvarez’s offer of reconciliation.
Bad news for Alvarez because Inday Sara just said she has no plan.
On Alan Peter Cayetano seeking endorsement from Inday Sara for the position of the Speaker of the House?
Inday Sara said this isn’t true. However, Cayetano did something that should make him regret doing this to Sara because the DDS will surely retaliate and punish the Cayetano’s come 2022 election.
So without further adieu, I want you to read Inday Sara Duterte’s statement regarding several issues hounding her, based on the FB post of netizen Jayvee Tyron L. Uy.
STATEMENT BY MAYOR INDAY SARA DUTERTE
There is no truth to the claims made by Rep. Prospero Pichay that I “recommended” Rep. Martin Romualdez as Speaker of the House. If I did raise his hand during the HNP rally in Tacloban, I did so because he, just like Rep. Lord Allan Velasco, is supportive of the reform agenda of President Duterte.
Meanwhile, I have no intention of accepting Rep. Bebot Alvarez’s offer of reconciliation because the offer was deceiving and utterly lacked sincerity. Unknown to him, he was surreptitiously videotaped when he threatened, after his win in the recent elections in Davao del Norte, “Ipapahiya ko si Sara.” Alvarez was and he remains to be a very dangerous, machiavellian individual who does not deserve peace.
Cong-elect Alan Peter Cayetano was correct when he said that he did not seek for my endorsement when he came to Davao to talk to me sometime last year. He, however, came with a veiled threat, that if I endorse Rep. Velasco for Speaker, I would break up the “group.” And this, he said, will affect the presidential elections of 2022.
The question on the interest of Cong-elect Paolo Duterte to vye for Speaker of the HOR should best be addressed by our father because he is the President and our patriarch.
In sum, I am only the Mayor of Davao City. I am not the correct person to endorse someone to be the next speaker. I only have a personal bet but do not intend to influence Congress. It is best if the newly elected members of the House of Representatives individually decide who among those who are interested to become the next Speaker can truly bring good governance and positive change to congress, to the Filipino people, and to our country.
