The current Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Caprio or Inday Sara is getting everyone behind her it seems. The CMD-Lakas has given her the vouch of approval and also the chairmanship of her party. PFP and Ferdinand Marcos Junior is supporting her Vice-Presidential race as a tandem vote. The People’s Reform Party is vouching for Sara as the VP and their candidate in in the race. While the PDP-Laban party and Presidential Candidate “Bong Go” is vying for Inday Sara as well. Therefore, everyone is seeking her graces at this point.
That says a lot really, but why is it like this? Why does everyone want to play with her? Is it because she’s the rising star or is ti because of the influence of her father as well. This is maybe why the PDP-Laban haven’t anointed anyone directly to be the VP candidate there for now. They hope she will be part of the ticket there too.
However, she is directly campaigning with Bong Bong Marcos. That is in all our messages and her statements of now. The ticket she is running on is directly being part of the Marcos launch plan. Inday Sara is clearly taking the risk and hopes for the rewards for doing so. Being part of a dynasty ticket and getting monetary gains into a campaign. Since, BBM and the family of plunders have the funds to have a vast campaign for her.
With doing that, she is indirectly vouching for the son of a dictator. Inday Sara has to take the blunt disregard and the disrespect of the EDSA revolution. She has to carry the weight of the martial laws and the tyranny, which the father did in his life-time. Bong Bong Marcos isn’t his father, but he has dismissed and downplayed the actions of his father. Neither has the Marcos family repaid or tried to take account for the plundering, which also happened and has been reported. The vast wealth was built on the state and siphoning funds. These haven’t been returned to the Republic and now some of that might be spent on the Inday Sara campaign.
She is initially accepting this blood-money for a stake at power. Inday Sara is accepting trading morals and credibility over a quick buck. Yes, that will make it easier and the venues might be bought without any issues. Inday Sara will get the promotion materials, the airtime and the TV-Ads needed to be in people’s mind all the time. Nevertheless, the price of that is working and accepting the neglect of the victims of the Marco’s reign. Since the son has never responded or cared for it. He only saw the beautiful side of his reign and enjoyed spoils. That’s why he will not address the reasons for the popular revolution, which caused the end of his fathers reign.
Now, Inday Sara will have to eat that bullet. She might shred tears and say she will push him. Nevertheless, she will be indebted to him and the slot he gave her. The agreement there comes with a cost and she cannot push or burn that bridge. The PDP-Laban slot might be a life-line, but then she will not have the same machinery behind her.
In CMD-Lakas and PFP she has two parties behind. While also having possible suitors in PRP and PDP-Laban. With that in mind, Inday Sara has several of friends who can back her. Now, she just have to prove her policies and worth. So, that she can be edible and able to sell Marcos to the public as well. Inday Sara has to make Bong Bong Marcos people friendly and a viable option. That’s not easy. BBM has never made that easy and he shreds doubts, again and again. She has to in-debt prove his value. That is a task I don’t ever want. No matter how much money you throw on my desk.
Inday Sara has a hurdle ahead of her. Yes, the machinery is behind her. Still, the machine can easily default or have technical difficulties. It is all fun and games when everything is working. However, when you have down-time and stoppage time. Awaiting the mechanics. At that time, the true face of the character comes forward and how she carries the trouble ahead. Right now is the honeymoon stage.
While the true campaigns are soon hitting the streets and there will be no turning back. Peace.
