Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso has formally launched his bid for the presidency in the 2022 Philippine elections today, 22 September in one of the country’s poorest communities – Baseco Compound in Tondo, Manila.
Moreno has chosen Doc Willie Ong as his running mate for vice-president.
In choosing Doc Willie Ong, Mayor Moreno said yesterday “Effective ako sa Maynila kasi doktora ang partner ko. Magiging effective ako sa bansa kung doktor ang partner ko.”
