Rex Gatchalian has taken his pick for the vice presidential race in 2022.

Although the Gatchalians are known to be stalwarts of the Nationalist People’s Coalition, the Valenzuela mayor is not backing the candidacy of their bet Senator Tito Sotto but of his fellow mayor, Sara Duterte of Davao City.

“I am always a fan of public officials who spend time doing developmental work. Over the past years, Valenzuela and Davao have been collaborating on scaling up our Special Education Intervention Center (Valsped) and our Public Housing Program Disiplina Village. Have had the chance to work up close with Mayor Inday Duterte doing these developmental projects for our respective cities,” the politiko said.

“Mayor Inday will make a good Vice President because of her on the ground experience as Local Chief Executive implementing development work in Davao and Mindanao,” he added.
