Groups call for Durano-Davide tandem
CEBU CITY, Philippines – Several groups in Cebu have thrown their support for a Durano-Davide tandem in the upcoming national and local elections.
At least 120 group leaders convened on Tuesday, September 28, calling former Tourism Sec. Ace Durano and Vice Gov. Hilario Davide III to run for governor and vice-governor respectively, a joint press release said.
One of those who pledged support for Durano and Davide was Fritz Acedo, chairperson of the Alyansa sa mga Kabus sa Dakbayan sa Probinsya sa Sugbo.
“Panahon na alang sa tinuod nga kalamboan. Kalamboan nga nanukad sa yanong pamilyang Sugboanon. Kolektibo namong natuki ang among suliran ug hiniusang mapangitaan og solusyon,” said Acedo.
“The pledge of support… was a unified effort to show their support on behalf of their organizations to the Durano-Davide tandem,” the press statement added.
Reports have been circulating that Durano and Davide may be gunning for the highest positions in the Capitol for the May 2022 elections.
This developed after the Durano-led Barug Alang sa Kauswagan ug Demokrasya (Bakud) announced that Ace is considering to run as governor, facing incumbent Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia.
On the other hand, Davide, who currently sits as vice governor, remained tight-lipped on his plans for the upcoming polls as of this moment.
