Sara’s bet for next Speaker: myself

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte on Friday responded to questions on who between former Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano and Marinduque Rep. Lord Alan Jay Velasco she prefers to be the next Speaker.

“I heard rumors that both Sec Cayetano and Cong Velasco are interested in the Speaker position of the House of Representatives. That is all I heard. To end all the loose talk and gossip, my bet for Speaker is none other than myself,” the mayor replied in a text message.
