Philippines ‘Bong’ vs ‘Bongbong’ election drama builds, Duterte move eyed

MANILA (Reuters) -Philippine voters were bracing on Sunday for more drama in a presidential race that already features a “Bong” vs “Bongbong” match-up and a potential 11th-hour challenge by President Rodrigo Duterte against his own daughter for the No. 2 post. Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, a Duterte loyalist, registered on Saturday to run for president after withdrawing from the vice presidential race, pitting himself against rivals including Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr, son of the late dictator. Sara Duterte-Carpio, who had been expected to run to succeed her father – who is barred by the constitution from seeking re-election – instead registered for vice president.
