“Aalis na ako sa Malacañang. Mamili na kayo kung sinong Ilocanong lider ang ilagay ninyo doon.”

President Rodrigo Duterte made the statement during his speech at the inauguration of the first-ever Narvacan Farmers Market in the town of Narvacan, Ilocos Sur Friday.

Prior to this, Duterte told the crowd that most of his Cabinet members are Ilocano.

“In my Cabinet, apat o tatlo na lang kaming Bisaya naiwan, puro Ilocano na,” he said.

The Chief Executive has yet to select a presidential candidate to endorse in the May 2022 elections.

His daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio is running for vice president alongside former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., an Ilocano.
