Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher “Toff” De Venecia considered it an honor to welcome vice presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to his province.
In a recent Instagram post, the young politiko shared a selfie he took with the leading VP candidate when she went to Pangasinan last week.
“Welcome to Pangasinan Ma’am Inday! As the regional and provincial chair of our political party Lakas-CMD, we are grateful and humbled by your presence and your commitment to serve and uplift the lives of our kabaleyan and the rest of Ilocandia,” said De Venecia.
Duterte is currently the chairperson of Lakas-CMD, the party co-founded by two Pangasinenses: De Venecia’s father, former House speaker Jose De Venecia and former president Fidel Ramos. Ex-senator Raul Manglapus also co-founded Lakas-CMD.
The party is now backing the late dictator’s son Ferdinand Marcos Jr. for president in the 2022 elections.
