While Mayor Duterte has yet to file his candidacy for President and haven’t found a potential running-mate, he already has his eyes set on the future Mrs. Duterte.

On the lighter side of Asian Dragon Magazine’s interview with Mayor Rody Duterte for our July-August cover story, we asked him, “Who is your ideal first lady?” Without batting an eyelash, he answered with a chuckle, “Berna Romulo-Puyat.”

Why her? He adds, “Because she is dignified.”

So who is Berna Romulo-Puyat?

There is a thick history behind the Department of Agriculture Undersecretary, who is now the apple of the eye of Mayor Rody Duterte. Berna Romulo Puyat is the grandniece of Carlos P. Romulo, former President of the United Nations General Assembly and the great granddaughter of historical figure Pio Valenzuela, the man whom Valenzuela is named after. Berna Romulo Puyat is also the daughter of former Senator and Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto G. Romulo, sister of Pasig Congressman and senatorial candidate Roman T. Romulo, sister-in-law of Shalani Soledad-Romulo, and widow of the late Dave Puyat. She is not only from a distinguished family, but also quite the achiever from a young age, graduated a cum laude in BS Economics and MA Economics from the University of the Philippines.

Everyone is still on the edge, waiting for Mayor Duterte to file his candidacy for President. But if there’s one thing we know for now, it’s that if Mayor Duterte does become the Philippine President in 2016, it’s Berna Romulo-Puyat who he wants to be by his side.
