Duterte: Today, I announce my retirement from politics

-

President Rodrigo Duterte released a new statement, saying that he won’t run for vice president during the 2022 elections. 

He said that he will retire from politics. 

“The overwhelming… sentiment of the Filipinos is that I am not qualified and it would be a violation of the constitution to circumvent the law, the spirit of the constitution to run for the vice presidency,” Duterte said. 

“Today I announce my retirement from politics,” he added. 

His announcement potentially paved the way for his daughter to contest the country’s highest office.
