MANILA, Philippines – Nagbitiw na si Vice President Sara Duterte nitong Biyernes, Mayo 19, bilang miyembro ng Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (Lakas-CMD) party.
“This is to announce my irrevocable resignation as a Lakas-CMD member effective today. I am grateful to all the party members for the support that also once demonstrated that unity is possible to advance our shared dreams for our fellow Filipinos and our beloved country,” saad niya sa Facebook post.
Si Duterte ay nagsilbing chairperson ng partido kasama si House Speaker Martin Romualdez bilang Lakas-CMD president.
Bagama’t hindi tinukoy kung ano ang dahilan ng kanyang pagbibitiw, sinabi nito na ang kanyang serbisyo sa bansa ay ayaw niyang maapektuhan ng laro sa politika.
“I am here today because of the trust of the Filipino people in me to lead and serve them and the country, and this cannot be poisoned by political toxicity or undermined by execrable political power play,” ani Duterte.
