MANILA – Supporters of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte gathered at the Quirino grandstand on Saturday afternoon in the hopes of convincing the mayor to run for president in the 2016 elections.
They played a jingle about Duterte and wore baller IDs, ribbons, and even T-shirts to show their support for Duterte's possible presidential run.
There were attendees from the province of Pampanga and even from Davao.
Duterte already ruled out running for president. He said he will retire next year.
Duterte did not attend the gathering. Nonetheless, his supporters hope that he will change his mind and file a certificate of candidacy next month. – report from Raphael Bosano, ABS-CBN News
