Sara Duterte-Carpio files COC for Mayor

Laywyer Sara Duterte-Carpio, daughter of Davao City Mayor Rody Duterte, agreed to run and has filed her Certificate of Candidacy for Mayor.

This is according to Manny Piñol, a close friend and staunch supporter of the Dutertes.

In his post on Facebook, Piñol said Sara's brother, Paolo, filed his Certificate of Candidacy for Vice Mayor earlier today.

"The filing of the COCs of the siblings now clear the way for the Presidential run of the older Duterte who in three previous instances has pointed to the refusal of Sara to take over the mayorship as the reason behind his refusal to run for President," the former North Cotabato governor said.

"A private jet has flown to Davao City to pick up Mayor Duterte on the way to Manila," he added.

According to news posted on Facebook, Duterte arrived at the Commission on Elections main office in Manila around 3 p.m. Today is the last day for the filing of COCs.

However, a reliable source said the photo circulating on Facebook is an old picture, taken in July.
