Tom Villarin: Sara Duterte’s Velasco endorsement kicks off 2022 presidential run

0

The 2022 elections have begun in Tom Villarin’s eyes.

The former Akbayan congressman said the political maneuvering in the House of Representatives is a sneaky but sharp reinforcement of the Duterte family’s power, even as Malacañang keeps on denying having a hand in these developments.

“With Velasco as Speaker, backed no less by Mayor Sara Duterte, the 2022 presidential race begins. PDuts will be gunning for a dynastic rule,” Villarin said.

Velasco did seem to return the favor and gave presidential son Deputy Speaker Pulong Duterte a key post, chairing the House accounts committee.
