Susi laban kay Ate Vi? Meynard Sabili gets ‘friendship key’ from Sara Duterte

Mar 11, 2019 @ 9:16

Lipa City Mayor Meynard Sabili pulled out all stops on Sunday to ensure the regional political party Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) feels at home in his bailiwick.

Thousands of residents turned up at an auditorium in Lipa for HNP’s campaign sortie featuring several of the senatorial candidates it endorses.

Sabili’s hospitality appears to have paid off as HNP’s founder, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, presented him with a “key of friendship” to mark their closeness.

Duterte’s gift to Sabili is significant because the mayor plans to challenge the re-election bid of Batangas Rep. Vilma Santos Recto, who happens to be a popular actress.

Will Duterte’s support for Sabili turn into votes in the May 13 elections? We’ll have to wait and see.
