Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said the Commission on Elections (Comelec) should first resolve the disqualification cases filed against him and, eventually, declare him an official candidate in the May polls before he would participate in the series of presidential debates the poll body is organizing.

He stressed that it would be presumptuous for him to join the events when the Comelec has not resolved the disqualification cases filed against him.

In making his point on the presidential debates, Duterte dared reporters to ask the Comelec if he is a presidential candidate or not.

His name still appears in the list of eight presidential candidates released last week but Duterte said it would be inappropriate for anyone who is yet to be considered an official candidate to join the debates.
