Davao Mayor Duterte runs for Presidential Elections 2016

After so many issues about his decision for not running as the candidate for the Presidential elections in the Philippines. Mayor Duterte finally breaks his silence and decided to join the 2016 race.

One of the reason why he decided to join the 2016 polls was due to the Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET) decision on Senator Grace Poe citizenship.

Davao Mayor said, "Ilabas mo ang nanay mo, then I will withdraw. I will campaign. Ilabas mo na kung sino ang nanay mo."

Rodrigo Duterte is a substitute presidential candidate of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban). And according to him, he has yet to formally inform Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III, of his decision to run for president.

However, Comelec chairman Andres Bautista confirms that they had yet to receive a letter from Duterte's willingness to become Diño's substitute because it will not be valid without Duterte's consent.

Comelec has until December 10 to finalize all the candidates for the 2016 elections.
