In her Instagram post the previous day (October 13), Sara posted the following hashtags “indaysaradutertesending #goodvibes to #Digong #Duterte2016 #pussyfooting.”
Sara’s Instagram followers took her posts and hashtags as a good sign that there is still a chance for Duterte to run for president. Duterte cited Sara’s letter telling him not to run for president because he does not owe anybody anything and that he has done enough for the country as one of the reasons for his decision.
“THIS IS IT!!! Magstay nako ng pinas for good!!! Babangon na ang pinas,” a certain Karen Atienza commented on Sara’s post.
Other followers expressed their thanks that Duterte finally had the guts to run for president, win or lose.
A netizen previously criticized Sara for her “selfishness” in not giving her blessings to her father’s rumored presidential bid. Sara told her critic to shut up even as she questioned the latter’s intellectual ability.
As of this time, no one from the Duterte family has filed a Certificate of Candidacy (CoC) even if the last day for filing is on October 16.
