Sara as Duterte’s preferred successor not official – Abella

Presidential Spokesman Ernesto Abella told reporters President Rodrigo Duterte’s pronouncement that his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is his preferred successor is “not an official statement.”

“It was not an official statement, okay? That statement was made to one reporter. Second, I think you’re making a breathtaking leap by assuming that he wants power when he says that his daughter is somebody that he trusts,” The Philippine Star quoted Abella.

“I think the issue here is trust. The issue here is that he trusts the capability of Sara. At this stage, that is his statement, okay?” he added.

Abella also reminded people to consider Sara as an individual being and not as the daughter of Duterte.

“I think you have to consider her as an independent personality and not just his daughter. It’s like she is an effective person and mayor and politician who happens to be his daughter. So it’s not a question of wanting to perpetuate power. So you know, I think there’s a huge difference between the two,” Abella said.

Last September 22, Duterte told reporters in Davao City that his daughter Sara is his preferred choice as she is a “strong woman” who knows the law very well.

He also remembered the time when Sara canceled an approved project located in Mt. Apo to prevent disasters to happen like a landslide for instance.
