Presidential son and House Committee on Accounts chairperson Paolo Duterte is supporting the presidential bid of former Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., in the 2022 elections.

Asked by the media if he supports Marcos, Duterte said “yes”.

In a separate text message, Duterte said he has been supporting Marcos “from the start.”

Duterte is the brother of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio who is the running mate of Marcos.
