• It has been confirmed that Spacebattles is filtering out links to The Sietch. Discussions with the owner of SB have indicated that they desire a clean break with us and feel that this is a means to that end. Out of respect for their desire for a clean break we request that our members refrain from violating this unwritten policy.

Howdy from the Alamo City Sietch family. Here's a discussion thread about the Republi of the Philippines ranging from politics, foreign policy, entertainment, vacation hotspots, etc.,

Enjoy!

Any thoughts on Pacquiao running for the Presidency in 2022 ?
None right now. Has he stated his campaign platform or is he still in the 'extremely vague statements' phase people who are trying to find an electorate do?

Hmm. Either he'll ally with Duterte or he'll steal votes from Duterte's candidate, but it's still too early to say anything other than that.

EDIT: Reading one of the cited articles, he's looking to steal Duterte's electorate. My guess is he'll present himself as agreeing with most of Duterte's original promises, and being a more acceptable candidate than Duterte or Duterte's candidate.

Big question is whether Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio runs for the Presidency in 2022 ?

I'd say that is quite possible. In that case, the question is whether Pacquiao is popular enough to steal Duterte's votes from outside the Davao area or will he merely split them.

ABS-CBN News reporting Duterte is retiring from politics which means his daughter, Sara is going to run for the Presidency in 2022.
