Philippine Duterte withdraws from the Senate race in the new electoral transition

Read Time:1 Minute, 46 Second


A few hours after the long-term aide and Senator Christopher Bongo, the president submitted the withdrawal document to the Election Commission. Duterte’s spokesperson said that the decision was to enable him to better serve the country.

The constitution prohibits 76-year-old Duterte from seeking re-election as president, but he is allowed to run for other positions in the May 2022 national elections.

He had planned to run for vice president, but instead chose to secure a place in the powerful Senate.

This withdrawal is the latest turning point in the Philippine election contest, which is full of last-minute changes and surprises that have puzzled political experts.

Go has performed poorly in public opinion polls and it is not clear who will get Duterte’s support. Duterte has maintained a high approval rate since winning the election in 2016 with outsiders who promised to fight crime and drugs.

“This idea may be continuous, but if the government does not have a presidential candidate, how can there be continuity?” said political analyst Edmund Tayao.

The president’s daughter, Sara Duterte-Carpio, was hinted that she would succeed him, but she chose to run for vice president with the son of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, who had become an early The leader.

On Tuesday, she said she supported her father’s decision.

Duterte faces many dangers. During his presidency full of government scandals, he created as many enemies as his allies, and he is known worldwide for the alarming death toll caused by his bloody drug war.

“In the past few months, the momentum against (the government) has really changed,” said Richard Heydarian, a writer, columnist, and scholar who specializes in politics. “The President is working hard to find a foothold in the 2022 game.”

Victor Manhit, an analyst at Stratbase think tank, said that Duterte’s exit may be aimed at transferring his support base to his daughter and Marcos, in order to “consolidate their power to Ensuring victory”.
