MANILA – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Wednesday he has accepted his party’s nomination to run for vice president in next year’s election.

Duterte is barred by the constitution from seeking a second term as president. His longtime aide Christopher “Bong” Go, a senator, was nominated as the party’s presidential candidate for the May 2022 polls.
