Philippines' Duterte says daughter running for president in 2022 elections – media – Yahoo News

MANILA (Reuters) -Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's daughter will run for president in the 2022 election and her father's long-time aide, who has filed his vice presidential candidacy, will be her running mate, ABS-CBN news reported late on Saturday.
Sara Duterte-Carpio is currently mayor of Davao, the Philippines' third-largest city, and on Saturday filed her candidacy to run again for mayor. She has previously said she would not run for national office next year.
ABS-CBN news based its report on an interview that president Duterte had with a broadcast journalist right after he announced that he was retiring from politics on Saturday, while accompanying his closest loyalist Senator Christopher "Bong" Go to file his vice presidential candidacy.
He was asked: "So is it clear, Sara-Go?"
"It is Sara-Go," Duterte said in response.
When asked to confirm what the president said, Duterte-Carpio's spokesperson Mayor Christina Garcia Frasco told Reuters: "The extent of my knowledge is also what was reported in local news. We have no comment on the same."
Go did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
ABS-CBN news said it obtained permission from the broadcast journalist to use the video showing Duterte outside a hotel in Manila where the registration of candidates was taking place and that a transcript was also provided.
In the same clip, Duterte was asked when his daughter would file her candidacy for president, he said: "I really do not know. I do not have any idea at all".
Asked if he had given his daughter permission to run for president, he said: "Ah, no, actually we don't talk about politics, ever since we never talk about politics. I would say that it is for the better".
Duterte's political party has yet to officially nominate its presidential candidate and Duterte-Carpio belongs to a different party.
Retired political science professor Temario Rivera said while Duterte's daughter is winnable, the same could not be said about Go who has no political base, thus making a Duterte-Carpio-Go ticket "weak".
"It would be an unsound political decision because what can Bong Go add to Sara's candidacy?," Rivera said.
While Duterte-Carpio is by far the most popular presidential prospect, according to successive opinion polls this year, but Go, who was the president's long-time aide before he became senator, trails in opinion surveys on preferred vice presidential bets.
Duterte, 76, said on Saturday he was retiring from politics, a surprise move that fuelled speculation he was clearing the way for a presidential run by his daughter.
He had been expected to run for the No. 2 job, a plan most Filipinos oppose as violating the spirit of the constitution which sets a one-term limit for the president to stop power being abused.
Duterte-Carpio's mayorial re-election filing, did little to douse speculation she has her eye on the presidency.
Analysts say it is crucial for Duterte to have a loyal successor to insulate him from potential legal action – at home or by the International Criminal Court – over the thousands of state killings in his war on drugs since 2016.
Candidates have until Oct. 8 to register, but withdrawals and substitutions are allowed until Nov. 15, leaving scope for last-minute changes of heart.

When the coronavirus vaccines were first rolled out, the national Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) went to the federal government, pleading for law enforcement officers to have "expedited access" to the shots. Police, the group wrote, needed the vaccine "to keep them, and the public with whom they interact, safe from infection." But to the group's surprise, officers did not rush to get the shot. And months later, with the vaccine widely available across the country, scores remain unvaccinated.Sub

Algeria has refused permission for France to fly military planes in its airspace and announced the recall of its ambassador from Paris in the wake of what it said were “inadmissible” comments attributed to French President Emmanuel Macron. This weekend's sharp escalation in tensions also follows a French decision to slash the number of visas issued to people in North Africa — including Algeria — because governments there are refusing to take back migrants expelled from France. A French request that two military planes be allowed to fly Sunday over Algerian territory was rejected, French military spokesman Col. Pascal Ianni said.
