SENATOR Christopher “Bong” Go on Wednesday assured that he supports the vice-presidential bid of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.

Go made the statement after Duterte-Carpio claimed that the ruling PDP-Laban party had refused to support her tandem with former dictator’s son Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in the 2022 elections.

Go said he will let PDP-Laban clarify the issue “in due time,” but said he supports Duterte-Carpio’s vice presidential bid.

“Alam ko naman po na wala kaming tinatanggihan. Being the administration party, we have always exerted efforts to reach out to those who are supportive of President Rodrigo Duterte,” he said in a statement.

“With regard to Mayor Sara, we always wish her well. As I have said earlier, kung ako lang ang tatanungin, siya ang aking sinusuportahan sa pagka-Bise Presidente,” he added.

The Presidential Daughter has sought the support of political parties for her and Marcos Jr.’s run in next year’s elections.

Go, meanwhile assured that the PDP-Laban PDDS have a very strong alliance.

“We have joined the PDDS and have followed the internal rules and processes of both PDDS and PDP Laban,” Go said.

“We are committed to the PDDS-PDP Laban alliance and will support the common candidates of both parties,” the senator added.
