Despite the support of 1-Cebu party, led by Governor Gwen Garcia, to presidential and vice presidential bets Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte, the Uniteam Marcos-Duterte Alliance (UMDA) has endorsed former tourism secretary Ace Durano for governor.

Its 300,000-strong members remain committed to support Durano, said UMDA spokesperson Cleo Forrosuelo.

“The UMDA remains steadfast in its commitment for a fair, honest and peaceful election this May 9, 2022. Part of this commitment, we rally our all-out support for the gubernatorial bid of Ace Durano for a better Cebu province,” their statement read. (

The group reiterated that it is a separate entity from another UMDA, which is a parallel group of medical practitioners also supporting the Marcos Jr.-Duterte tandem.

“Our core group is composed of varied professionals and does not come from an exclusive profession. Although we are in the same goal of ensuring the victory for BBM-SARA tandem in Cebu, but we are not of the same boat in achieving this goal,” they added.

The UMDA expressed confidence that they can deliver honest votes for Durano in the local level and for BBM-Sara in the national arena.
