Presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte has officially endorsed Congressman Celso L. Lobregat for Mayor of Zamboanga City in the forthcoming 2019 elections.

This was disclosed by Congressman  Lobregat during the Team Colorao press conference held yesterday at the Lobregat’s residence in Nuñez.

According to Lobregat, his official endorsement as the standard bearer and mayoralty bet of the Hukbong ng Pagbabago Party of Mayor Sarah Duterte came about after he was called for an emergency meeting by the lady mayor last November 9 at a restaurant in Manila.

It was here that Mayor Sarah officially endorsed Congressman Lobregat’s candidacy for Zamboanga City’s mayorship in the coming midterm elections.

“I am equally elated and humbled that Mayor Sara Duterte has officially endorsed my candidacy for mayor in our beloved city of Zamboanga. This is an honor for me that no less than the presdential daughter believes in my character and capability in public leadership and governance,” Lobregat stressed to reporters during yesterday’s press conference.

Lobregat said that he is grateful to the presidential daughter for her assured support in the coming polls.

Partymates of Lobregat were all elated to learn about this political development and likewise  expressed gratitude to Mayor Sara for picking the congressman as their official mayoralty candidate for Zamboanga City.

“Indeed, this is a very welcome development to our Team Colorao. This is a positive development for the entire group,” District 2 Councilor Mike Alavar said.

The councilor said that Mayor Sara’s official endorsement of Lobregat is a plus factor not only for the congressman but for all the aspirants in their team.

It can be recalled that Mayor Sara Duterte on Friday, in an interview with the national televisions,  disclosed that her regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) will forge alliances with other political parties. –(R.G Antonet A. Go)
