Speaker Lord Allan Velasco on Friday said he believes Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte will make a good vice president, as he reiterated his all-out and unconditional support for her candidacy.
Velasco likened the vice-presidential frontrunner to the majestic Philippine Eagle that symbolizes courage and compassion.
“Mayor Inday Sara possesses a clear vision, is courageous, has integrity, honesty, humility, compassion and clear focus. There is no doubt she will be a good vice president,” Velasco, a close friend and ally of the presidential daughter, said while campaigning for her Friday morning in Cabanatuan City.
The House leader issued the statement as his team joined the Luzon leg of Mayor Duterte’s Mahalin Natin ang Pilipinas Ride (MNPR), a month-long national caravan that is taking her from Davao City to various parts of the country.
Velasco, who is running unopposed in Marinduque’s lone congressional district, is also supporting the Pusong Pinoy Party-list, which is running under the platform “Labanan ang Sakit at Kahirapan.”
Thousands of people lined up along the highway in Nueva Ecija as they waited for the arrival of Mayor Duterte and her team.
The caravan was headed for Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya Friday afternoon.
