MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Rodrigo Duterte has not yet even completed a full 14 months of his six-year term but already, political parties are floating the names of their standard bearers come 2022.

Vice President Leni Robredo, being the highest-ranking member of the opposition Liberal Party is almost assured of nomination to run for president.

The Duterte administration has also started floating the name of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, the president’s daughter, to be the ruling PDP-Laban’s candidate.

Not to be outdone, the minority coalition that includes Akbayan is reportedly grooming Senator Risa Hontiveros to be their chosen one.

The women’s organization Gabriela couldn’t be more pleased with this frontrunner line-up, telling The Adobo Chronicles that an all-women candidate field will totally eliminate issues of machismo and misogyny from the presidential race.

Gabriela has already chosen its 2022 election meme which is: “May the best woman win.”

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all ?
