RUN SARA RUN!!
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – With the 2022 elections fast approaching, major political parties, which forged an alliance with the Duterte administration, are now seeking to support Mayor Sara Duterte if she decides to run for president.
On Thursday, the group launched Mayor Sara Duterte Alliance (MASADA) with Energy Undersecretary Benito Ranque as lead convenor.
Ranque said the exodus of political leaders from different parties expressing their open support to the good mayor to run for President in 2022 National Elections.
Seven major political parties, Ranque said, will unify and forge alliance with Sara’s regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP). These parties that forge alliance include PDP-Laban, Partido ng Masang Pilipino (PMP), Nationalista Party (NP) National People’s Coalition (NPC) National Unity Party (NUP Lakas -CMD and People’s Reform Party (PRP).
Ranque said: “The alliance is getting stronger and we are waiting for the official announcement of Mayor Sara until October.”
He said in case Mayor Inday Sara decides to join the Presidential race the existing political alliances will rally behind her.
But Mayor Sara clarified she will stay with Hugpong ng Pagbabago and Hugpong Tawong Lungsod and she don’t intend to join any national political party.
Ranque recalled that HNP was already accredited by the Commission on Elections in 2018 as a regional party.
The Masada convenor cited Comelec Resolution 10695, which says that “current registered party has until August 15th to submit a sworn information update status (SIUS) to register any coalition.
“ Mayor Sara will be the unifying incoming President,” the Masada convenor told news reporters.
Masada is a multi-sectoral movement seeking for the project continuity of the incumbent administration of President Rodrigo Duterte. It also aims to attract a nation-wide support from different sectors in the countryside.
