Duterte claims Joma backing

Aug 30, 2015 @ 23:24

Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte over the weekend said he has the support of Communist Party of the Philippines founding chairman Jose Maria Sison for a prospective presidential run in 2016.

The mayor disclosed this Friday night, Aug. 28, at a caravan at San Pedro Square in Davao City, state-run Philippines News Agency reported late Sunday, Aug. 30.

The PNA report said Duterte played a voice message by Sison, who is now in The Netherlands, claiming Dueterte has “integrity, strength of character and political will for good”.

Sison also claimed Duterte can advocate “Filipino-owned industrialization and land reform,” and can protect the country’s sovereignty.

But the mayor said he still needs to seek the approval of his family before he decides whether to run in 2016.
