Duterte's Supporters Remain Hopeful

By Alon Calinao Dy: Thousands of Duterte's supporters are still hoping that the notorious mayor of Davao City would run for president in 2016. Some supporters even shaved their heads, believing that Sara Duterte daughter of Mayor Duterte would support her father for presidency.

Sara, who is also known as Inday, shaved her hair awaiting for her father to file COC for president in the coming days. However, the elder Duterte said many times he had no intention to run for president and had no ambition to become a president.

Sara, posted on her social media account "Bisan walay kwarta, bisan way makinarya, bisan mapildi (Even without money, even without machinery, even if we lose). This gives hope to those avid fans of Mayor Duterte that he would show up in the last filing of the COC yesterday.

I think it's about time to settle all these issues. I think Mayor Duterte's decision is final not to run for president even if he is an ideal leader for our country. I am one of the million supporters who believe and support his Federalism advocacy. Let's not force him into something that he thinks he's not ready to make any kind of commitment.

Although many people believe that the country and Filipino people need Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, we should still remain positive to have a strong and firm leader in the country.

As I said Duterte is an ideal leader because of what he already accomplished in Davao City over the past decade.
