Presidential aspirant Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. and his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte kicked off their first ever caravan in Mindanao.
The BBM-Sara Uniteam's caravan marked their alliance in next year’s polls.
Marcos, standard-bearer of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP),
and Duterte, vice presidential aspirant of Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD), made their first public appearance together by physically joining thousands of their supporters in a motorcade in Davao del Norte.
The two were joined by House Majority Leader and Leyte 1st District Rep. Martin G. Romualdez, Ilocos Norte congressional candidate Sandro Marcos, and other key political allies in Mindanao.
“It’s great to see the overwhelming support of the people, mostly volunteer riders who joined the longest caravan in Mindanao so far for the BBM-Sara Uniteam. We express our gratitude for extending their support to BBM and Mayor Sara, our Lakas-CMD Chairperson. Let’s continue to unite and foster positive relationships for the common good of our country,” Romualdez, Lakas-CMD President, said.
Thousands of vehicles, mostly on motorcycles met at the starting
point at Barangay Guadalupe in Carmen, Davao del Norte to voluntary participate in the caravan showing support for BBM-Sara tandem.
The participants traversed Guadalupe Bridge, Libuganon Bridge, Magdum Curvada, Palengke, Sobrecarey, Roxas Palengke, Quezon, Abad Santos, Rizal, Pioneer, and Highway Lapu-Lapu Street.
Marcos delivered his Uniteam message at the Cuntapay Compound, Lapu-Lapu Street in Tagum City immediately after the motorcade.
Marcos and Duterte raised their arms together to support each other and seal the alliance for 2022 presidential elections.
Before his speech, Marcos was introduced by South Cotabato Gov.
Reynaldo Tamayo, Jr. of PFP while Duterte was introduced by Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) stalwart Davao de Oro Gov. Jayvee Tyron L. Uy after Davao del Norte Vice Governor Rey T. Uy delivered the opening remarks for the BBM-Sara event.
Earlier, Marcos announced the BBM-Sara ticket for next year’s
presidential and vice-presidential elections after Duterte allied and
asked support from BBM’s camp.
