By Alon Calinao Dy: Senator Miriam has expressed her great interest to run for president in 2016. She wants Davao City Mayor Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte to be her running partner. 

Santiago believes that the country is in peace and order if Duterte is the one who will implement the laws to have claws for the poor and those who feel violated by other people.

In an interview Santiago said, "I would love to work with [Rody] Duterte whom I have always loved from the very beginning." Unquestionably, Duterte is one of the most respected political leaders in the Philippines who makes Davao City the fourth safest city in the world.

Duterte, who is also known by Dawenyos as "Digong," became the father figure of the locals and their hero to oppose all the criminalities within the areas of his responsibility. He is expected to imprison all those corrupt officials in the Philippines if ever he wins the highest or second to the highest seat in Malacanang Palace.

Aside from Duterte, Santiago is also open to other candidates like Grace Poe, Bong Bong Marcos, and Alan Peter Cayetano to be her running mate next year. 

However, it seems Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago is determined that she will run for president in the coming election against strong competitors like VP Jejomar Binay and Manila Mayor Joseph Ejercito Estrada.
