 Sara joins Lakas-CMD before deadline.

Sara Duterte-Carpio, the daughter of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, has officially joined the Lakas-CMD party just before the deadline for political parties to submit their final list of candidates for the upcoming 2022 national elections.

The announcement was made by Lakas-CMD President Martin Romualdez, who welcomed Duterte-Carpio to the party and expressed his excitement for her candidacy. Duterte-Carpio is expected to run for a national position, although it is still unclear which specific position she will be vying for.

The decision to join Lakas-CMD comes after months of speculation about Duterte-Carpio’s political plans. She had previously been linked to other political parties, including the Hugpong ng Pagbabago party that she founded in 2018.

However, Duterte-Carpio’s decision to join Lakas-CMD is seen as a strategic move, as the party has a strong presence in many parts of the country and has a history of producing successful candidates in national elections.

In a statement, Duterte-Carpio expressed her gratitude to the Lakas-CMD leadership for welcoming her into the party. She also emphasized her commitment to serving the Filipino people and working towards a better future for the country.

“I am honored to join the Lakas-CMD party and to work alongside its members in serving our fellow Filipinos,” Duterte-Carpio said. “I believe that together, we can make a real difference in the lives of our people and build a brighter future for our country.”

Duterte-Carpio’s entry into the Lakas-CMD party is expected to shake up the political landscape in the Philippines, as she is widely seen as a strong contender for any national position she decides to run for. Her popularity and political clout have only grown in recent years, and many believe that she has the potential to become a major force in Philippine politics for years to come.

As the 2022 national elections draw closer, all eyes will be on Duterte-Carpio and the Lakas-CMD party to see how they will fare in what is expected to be a highly competitive and closely watched election season.
