Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said Wednesday she accepted the offer to serve as chairman of former Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's party Lakas-CMD, which is carrying her vice president in 2022.

"I am honored to accept the chairmanship of Lakas-CMD," Duterte-Carpio said in response to the offer made by Sen. Bong Revilla, the party's incumbent chairman.

Duterte-Carpio accepted the chairmanship at Lakas-CMD less than a week after she formally joined the party. She earlier substituted for the party's original vice presidential bet Lyle Uy to become the party's standard bearer.
