Another Duterte for president? Isko Moreno hopes voters ‘won’t be called stupid later on’
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno hopes voters “won’t be called stupid later on” as he criticized the clamor for Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte to succeed her father, President Rodrigo Duterte.
In an interview on ANC’s “Headstart” Friday, June 4, Moreno was asked about his thoughts about the possibility of another Duterte leading the country for another six years.
“Ayokong pangunahan ang taumbayan sa pagpili nila ng kanilang lider. But I hope they will not be called stupid later on,” he said.
Moreno said he doesn’t believe a government position should be inherited in a democratic government.
“Ang demokrasya ang taumbayan ang pumipili, hindi ipinipilit yung mga kalahi nya pagkatapos na niya. Hindi ako naniniwala dyan and I am not gonna vote for that as a voter and I disagree as a citizen of this country,” he said.
Moreno has been floated as one of the politikos whom Duterte might endorse for president in case the mayor decides to run for higher office in 2022.
