“I am now open to running for President”
From outrightly slamming the door on a presidential run, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has succumbed to pleas from supporters to “keep his options open” on gunning for the presidency in the 2016 election.
My supporters are requesting me to keep my options open and make the final decision
until the deadline for filing of Certificate of Candidacy, said Duterte in the June 21, edition of the Gikan sa Masa Para sa Masa television program on ABS/BN.
With the deadline for submission of the COC set in late October, Duterte has four months to keep his supporters in suspense on whether he will run or not.
