Presidential aspirant Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go formalized on Tuesday his withdrawal from the 2022 elections.
Go personally went to the Commission on Elections main office in Manila to withdraw his candidacy for president.
The senator in late November said he was dropping out of the race because he did not want Duterte to be “trapped in the middle.”
The senator, who is Duterte’s long-time and most trusted aide, was the presidential candidate of Pederalismo ng Dugong Dakilang Samahan, a party allied with the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan.
The President’s daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is running for vice president in tandem with a different contender, former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
