Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Ahong Chan is expected to consult first his national party, PDP-Laban, regarding its endorsement of former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. as president in the 2022 polls.

The ruling PDP-Laban earlier endorsed Marcos Jr. as president, along with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, who is running for vice president.

He just wanted to clarify some issues since his challenger, Rep. Paz Radaza, is also supporting Marcos Jr.’s presidential bid, said Chan. (

Aside from the party, the mayor said that he will also be consulting Mandaue City Mayor Jonas Cortes and Cebu Governor Gwendolyn Garcia whose opponents are also endorsing the late dictator’s son.

Meanwhile, Chan said that he has no objection to declaring a “zona libre” in the city in the upcoming elections to ensure that Marcos Jr. won’t endorse a local candidate.

In a Facebook post, Radaza claimed that the tandem of Marcos and Duterte-Carpio is endorsing her slate in the upcoming elections.
