DAVAO CITY, Philippines — “Mayor Duterte, hello, friends na tayo.  Dahil hindi mo pinanalo si Noy nung 2010, sa 2016 dapat manalo ako.”

The statement from Presidential sister and television host Kris Aquino apparently caught Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte off-guard, albeit it tickled the public, during Hugpong sa Tawong Lungsod’s campaign sortie Thursday evening in Purok 2, 76-A village.

It can be recalled that despite Duterte’s public endorsement of Noynoy Aquino, presidential aspirant then, another presidential wannabe won in Davao City.

Coming to his own defense, Duterte explained to the public that he did his best, “but that’s all that I can do.”

However, what’s become clearer by the day is Kris’s intent to run in 2016.  Although she made no mention what particular elective position she’s aspiring, Duterte himself said Kris “will run for Senator.”

And coming to Davao City, attending just one of Hugpong’s regular sorties in one of the villages here, could be of help.

Kris, the celebrity, was certainly a crowd-drawer.  Loud cheers were heard when she personally invited Duterte to be her co-host for her morning show’s second anniversary.

Magrerequest na ako kay Mayor na ka-close ko na.  Halos ang buong Pilipinas nalibot ko na pero ang Davao hindi ko pa nalilibot.  So sana pagpunta ko dito ikaw ang co-host ko,” she said.

Again, Duterte was prodded to answer positively but later on backtracked, saying he’s “no Chiz,” and that he would have to find a replacement.

Kris asked the vice mayor to tour her around the city’s destinations so that those who are watching her show abroad would see the cleanliness, discipline and tastefulness of the city’s foods.

Candid remarks

Duterte has also asked Kris to endorse Mylene Garcia, the incumbent reelectionist representative of second congressional district.

Nasaan ba tayo ngayon, anong district?,” Kris asked to which Duterte replied, “First  district ma’am.”

To the crowd’s laughter, Kris asked, “Eh ba’t nandito cya?” pointing to Garcia.

Duterte explained that Garcia wants to be publicly endorsed by the talk-show host.  He also appealed for Louie Bonguyan, Hugpong’s bet for representative in the first congressional district versus the incumbent Karlo Nograles.

Sana matulongan ka kasi yung kalaban mo, super kagalit ni PNoy, so gusto ko ikaw yung manalo,” Kris said adding, “sana yung kakampi ni PNoy ang suportahan natin.”

Duterte said that when Congressman Nograles heard that Noynoy Aquino was running for the presidency, “Nograles had many things to say.”

“He (Nograles) said good riddance, wala yan, hindi mananalo.  Umabot ito kay PNoy kaya medyo may sentimyento siya,” Duterte told the audience.

Kris as well as Escudero and Poe stayed for an hour in the rally.  Hugpong candidates were forced to shorten their speech, as Kris’s arrival was constantly announced.  (John Rizle L. Saligumba/davaotoday.com)
