Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 23)— Presidential aspirant former senator Bongbong Marcos and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte met in Cebu on Saturday, both camps have confirmed.

"Confirmed po na nagkita kami ngayon lang ni [Marcos] sa masayang pagdiriwang ng birthday ni Cong. Yedda, maybahay ni House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez sa Cebu," Duterte wrote on her official Facebook page.

[Translation: It's confirmed that we met during the birthday celebration of Cong. Yedda, the spouse of House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez, in Cebu.]

Marcos' camp also shared a photo of their meeting to the media, but did not provide further details.

Marcos and Duterte both flew to Cebu on Friday, fueling speculations on their plans for the 2022 polls. Both engaged in separate activities and meetings upon arrival.

But Marcos' spokesperson Atty. Vic Rodriguez said the timing of their visits was "just another beautiful coincidence."

The former senator and son of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos is among those eyeing the country's highest post in next year's elections.

Meanwhile, supporters of Mayor Duterte — who is seeking reelection in Davao City — continued their calls for her to also seek the presidency.
