Sara has vowed not to run for any municipal office following the VP election.

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Regardless of whether she wins or loses the vice-presidential election on May 9, Mayor Sara Z. Duterte announced on Sunday that she will not return to local politics.

Mayor Sara commended the Dabawenyos for their support during her tenure as the city’s local chief executive during a speech at the Dumper PTDA (Drivers United for Mass Progress and Equal Rights–Philippines Taxi Drivers Association) party-list grand rally here.

“To all the Dabawenyos, I will now bid you farewell. “Regardless of the election outcomes, I will no longer run for any municipal positions,” Duterte stated.

“It is an honor to have been elected mayor three times and to conclude my term as the Philippines’ top-performing mayor,” she said.

Since the pandemic broke out in early 2020, Duterte has praised the Dabawenyos’ fortitude.

“Thank you so much,” she replied, “since not all mayors have had such enormous support.”

She also thanked Dabawenyos for believing in her leadership amid the 2016 Roxas Night Market bombing, which killed 17 people and injured 74 others.

Duterte bid farewell to Dabawenyos during her virtual valedictory and state of the city address in March of this year, as she bids for the country’s second-highest office.

She viewed the vice-presidential contest as a challenge that allowed her to “soar higher and reach greater heights” by spreading her wings wider.

“It’s been a wonderful pleasure to be chosen as mayor of Davao City by all of you,” she added. “It’s my joy to have served our country alongside all of you.” Thank you so much for all of your help.”
