Duterte Carpio, 43, who replaced her father as mayor of Davao City and belongs to a different political party, had previously given mixed messages about running, despite opinion polls this year ranking her as the number one presidential prospect.
She will run under the coalition party of Partido Federal and Lakas-CMD.
Earlier this week, Duterte Carpio withdrew her candidacy for reelection as Davao mayor and resigned from her Davao-based party, Hugpong Ng Pagbabago.
This is a developing story, more to come.
