Cebu City (CNN Philippines, February 23) — A Cebu City official ordered the removal of tarpaulins plastered along several streets, encouraging Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte to run for president.

Cebu City Office of the Building chief Florante Catalan said the office has not received any application to put up streamers or tarpaulins from "Friends of Sara" or "Run Sara Run." The Office of the Building is the entity in charge of ensuring that the National Building Code is followed. Permits before putting up of streamers are covered under a City Ordinance.

Catalan added that he will ask the Prevention Restoration Order Beautification Enhancement office to remove the "illegal" tarpaulins.

The tarpaulins were put up on elevated walkways in at least four different locations and were making rounds on social media.

Several of these political posters have also been sprouting in other cities such as Davao, and regions, including Metro Manila. The presidential daughter was the top-of-mind choice for the country's next leader in 2022 according to a recent survey by OCTA Research, but she recently said she may only run for the post after more than a decade has passed.
