Will you vote for him? Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano wants to be your next president

The road to becoming the next commander in chief may be blurry for Cayetano as Pres. Rodrigo Duterte did not mention him as a possible successor

Ex-House Speaker Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano is “seriously” contemplating running for the presidency in next year’s national elections.

In a press briefing, Cayetano did not exclude going for other positions in government but was “really praying and discerning about it”.

But before the 2022 elections, his goal is to have his proposed measure approved which seeks to provide P10,000 to the most impacted households and to create a “five-year plan” for the Philippines amid the health crisis.

“Anyone and everyone who is qualified and could be a good president should now contribute in putting together a five-year plan para kahit sinong manalo, at least, may plano na ‘Yung ating bansa,” he stressed.

He also said that “anything is possible” when asked how he would respond if Sen. Manny Pacquiao wanted him to be his running mate.

The road to becoming the next commander in chief may be blurry for Cayetano as Pres. Rodrigo Duterte did not mention him as a possible successor.

Malacañang recently came out and said Duterte is fine with seeing five different politicians leading the country, namely his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, former senator Bongbong Marcos, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, and long-time aide Sen. Bong Go.

Cayetano’s name wasn’t included in the list.

Noong kinausap ko siya d’yan, wala pa siyang desisyon. Mayroon lang siya talagang mga options na sinabi,” Palace spokesman Harry Roque said recently in a briefing.

The career politician has been plagued with various controversies, most notably his management of the 30th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games).

The public somehow knows that Cayetano doesn’t stand a chance in becoming president.

He ran for the vice presidency in 2016 but didn’t come close to winning so it is utterly useless to gun for the top position, said netizens.

Cayetano is a man who flip-flops on many issues which is why people may think twice before voting for him.
