Duterte not confident of PDP-Laban senatorial line up winning via landslide

President Rodrigo Duterte is not confident the senatorial bets of the administration will be able to register a landslide win in the 2022 polls.

“If we work hard, we have a good chance of making it. I hope it will be all,” Duterte said following his meeting with spiritual adviser and longtime friend Pastor Apollo Quiboloy in Davao City.

“It’s a tall order, actually. But we will try our best,” he said.

Like most political parties, the PDP-Laban will not be fielding a full ticket of 12 senatorial candidates as it only has eight in its list.

“They were asking for a complete [line up] but there’s a change in the current crop of senators,” Duterte said.

The Duterte administration’s senatorial line up under the PDP-Laban is comprised of Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo, Agrarian Reform Secretary John Castriciones, Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission Chairman Greco Belgica, Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar, Mindanao Development Authority Chairman Emmanuel “Manny” Piñol, Information and Communications Technology Secretary Gregorio “Gringo” Honasan, actor Robin Padilla, and broadcaster Rey Langit.

Villar and Piñol are also running under the Nacionalista Party and Nationalist People’s Coalition, respectively.

Transport Secretary Arthur Tugade was considered for the administration’s senatorial line up but he backed out.
