MANILA - Sebastian Duterte is set to take over his sister's role as Hugpong ng Pagbabago campaign manager as Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio rushed back to Davao City due to personal issues.
Duterte-Carpio told reporters she had to return home to attend to an urgent issue.
"Yes, because 'di ko alam kung ilang araw before ma-resolve yung issue doon sa Davao City," she said.
(Yes, because I don't know how long it will take before the issue in Davao City is resolved.)
Asked whether it has something to do with politics, Mayor Duterte said: "No, it's a personal - it's a family issue"
Her brother, Baste, will be taking over her position in the campaign sorties of HNP in the Bicol region until Thursday.
Duterte-Carpio and HNP candidates were campaigning in Lucena City in Quezon Monday.
