Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said he has not received a formal nomination from his party, the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino -Laban, to be its substitute candidate for president.
Again asked about the possibility of him joining the presidential race next year, the mayor said it is up to God.
In an interview during the 23rd Defense and Sporting Arms show, Duterte also admitted that he has not met with PDP-Laban officials in the past three years.
He added that he only learned about his nomination from the media statements issued by party officials.
He said three factors are discouraging him to run — his family, age, and lack of funding.
