Luigi Quisumbing on Duterte endorsing rival bet: Many hands make work light
Mandaue City Mayor Luigi Quisumbing does not mind President Rodrigo Duterte and his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio supporting rival mayoral candidates.
What is important is the support the candidate is willing to give to the Duterte administration’s programs, said Quisumbing in Cebu Daily News article.
“Whether our hands were raised or not by President Duterte or mayor Sara, what’s important is that the candidate is genuine in helping the fight against corruption and drugs,” the politiko said during the campaign sortie of Duterte-Caprio’s Hugpong ng Pagbabago last March 21.
“As long as candidates being endorsed genuinely push for anti-corruption and anti-drugs campaigns, so be it. Many hands make work light,” he added.
Quisumbing, whose party is allied with HnP, is running for reelection against former mayor and Cebu Rep. Jonas Cortes (6th district) of the Duterte-led PDP-Laban.
The camp of Cortes was endorsed during the PDP-Laban rally last February 24 at the Plaza Independencia in Cebu City.
“It is important for us that (Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio) sees us as a genuine party that helps fulfil the promises of the president’s administration as far as anti-corruption and fighting illegal drugs is concerned,” the incumbent mayor said.
