Davao City Mayor Duterte says Poe-Escudero is a 'good team'
He's still undecided on who to support though.
(SPOT.ph) According to a report on ABS-CBN News published on Friday, September 18, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte approves of the Sen. Grace Poe and Sen. Chiz Escudero tandem. The report comes a day after Escudero officially declared his candidacy for vice president, running alongside Poe in the 2016 presidential elections.
Although Duterte believes that Poe is a neophyte in politics, he recognized Escudero as a veteran, which he says balances the equation and will work in favor of Poe. "Well, it's a good team," he said.
However, Duterte claims to be neutral. He's waiting to hear more about the candidates’ platforms before deciding on who to support. "Wala pa akong commitment. I would rather say neutral for this time. I cannot make any assessment now. Tingnan ko muna yung program of government nila," he said.
Without Duterte in the battle for presidency, his opinions are believed to significantly impact the results. Even after turning down the presidential race, many are still hopeful for him to change his mind.
