Manila:

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Saturday he would not run for vice president in 2022 and would retire from politics, potentially paving the way for his daughter to contest for the country’s highest office.

Duterte said, “The overwhelming … sentiment of the Philippines is that I am not qualified and that it would be a violation of the Constitution to circumvent the spirit of the law, the Constitution.” “Today I announce my retirement from politics.”
