The 2022 Philippine presidential and vice presidential elections are scheduled to be held on Monday, May 9, 2022, as part of the 2022 general election. This will be the 17th direct presidential election and 16th vice presidential election in the Philippines since 1935, and the sixth sextennial presidential and vice presidential election since 1992.

Incumbent president Rodrigo Duterte is ineligible for re-election as he is limited to a single term, under the 1987 Philippine Constitution. The position of president and vice president are elected separately; the two winning candidates could thus come from different political parties.

The 2022 presidential election will be the first where all candidates for president were born after World War II ended.



The Commission on Elections released the official list of candidates on January 25, 2022, although it was finalized nine days before. Some candidates can still be disqualified but still appear on the ballot; candidates can still be disqualified until their proclamation. This is ordered by the surname of the presidential candidate.

Ernesto Abella (Independent)

Ernesto Abella said he was running since "ordinary people were being set aside", and that he was running as an independent since the ruling PDP–Laban did not choose him as their standard bearer. He later said that he was confident of not being declared as a nuisance candidate.

Leody de Guzman (PLM)

Leody de Guzman, chairman of the Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino, a progressive labor group, ran for senator in 2019 and lost. De Guzman is running for president this time.

Walden Bello (PLM)

The Laban ng Masa (transl. Struggle of the Masses) coalition launched a campaign to collect 300,000 signatures to urge activist and former party-list lawmaker Walden Bello to run for president in the 2022 elections. In a statement, Laban ng Masa said it wants to "push for an ambitious platform that focuses on the poor, prioritizes the neglected, and fights for the rights of ordinary Filipinos."

Bello's group sought talks with Vice President Robredo's backers for three months but were ignored. This caused them to support Leody de Guzman's presidential candidacy, instead.

Later in October 20, Bello decided to run for the vice-presidency, substituting Raquel Castillo who was supposed to be de Guzman's running mate.

Norberto Gonzales (PDSP)

Former secretary of National Defense Norberto Gonzales said that his campaign is "new and more politically mature approach to winning the nation's heart and its consent to govern."

Panfilo Lacson (Independent)

In July 2021, Senate President Tito Sotto confirmed that Panfilo Lacson will run for president in a tandem with him. On September 8, the duo announced their candidacies for the upcoming election.

On 24 March 2022, Lacson resigned from Partido Reporma and became an independent candidate after the said party is set to endorse another presidential candidate.

Tito Sotto (NPC)

In July 2021, Tito Sotto announced that he will be Lacson's eventual running mate in the presidential race;[111][112] this was followed by an official campaign announcement on September 8, 2021.

Faisal Mangondato (Katipunan)

Magondato, who ran for senator in 2019 and lost, filed to run for president on October 4.

Carlos Serapio (Katipunan)

Serapio, Magondato's running mate, said that he will push for federalism in the Philippines if he wins.

Bongbong Marcos (PFP)

By January 2020, Bongbong Marcos confirmed that he is running "for a national position" in 2022, although he did not specify which position. By September 2020, Marcos's sister Imee said that her brother was still noncommittal to which position he'd run for.

A year later, Marcos himself confirmed that "The presidency is not taken off the table." On September 21, the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP; transl. Federal Party of the Philippines) nominated Marcos to run for president. If Marcos accepts, he will be inducted as a member of the party and be made its chairman.

During the national convention of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL; transl. New Society Movement) in Binangonan, the party founded by his father, he was nominated as the party's candidate for president. Marcos, who remained a member of the Nacionalista Party, thanked KBL for the nomination, but said that he will announce his plans "when the time comes." On October 5, Marcos announced his presidential candidacy. Marcos then resigned from the Nacionalistas and was sworn in at the PFP chairman. Marcos ultimately filed his presidential candidacy under the PFP.

By late November, Marcos faced 3 petitions to cancel his candidacy, four petitions to disqualify him, and 1 petition to declare him as a nuisance candidate. The electoral commission dismissed the petition declaring him a nuisance candidate on early December. They also dismissed another petition which claims Marcos Jr. died decades ago and an impostor took his place.

Sara Duterte (Lakas)

On July 9, 2021, Davao City mayor Sara Duterte said that she is open to run for president. However, there was no final decision yet. On September 9, 2021, she said that she is not running for president since her father, President Duterte was running for vice president, and they agreed that only one of them will run on a national position.

On November 11, she resigned from Hugpong ng Pagbabago and later joined Lakas–CMD on the same day. She filed her candidacy on November 13, 2021, substituting Lyle Fernando Uy. Partido Federal ng Pilipinas adopted Duterte as their vice presidential candidate as Bongbong Marcos' running mate. Lakas and Duterte then announced that they are supporting Marcos' presidential bid; PDP–Laban first turned down her appeal for support.

Jose Montemayor Jr. (DPP)

Cardiologist Jose Montemayor Jr. vowed to eliminate COVID-19, corruption, and criminality once he becomes president.

Rizalito David (DPP)

David filed his candidacy on October 8. David was most notable for losing a quo warranto petition against Grace Poe in the 2016 election.

Isko Moreno (Aksyon)

At the start of 2021, pollster Pulse Asia published an opinion poll showing Isko Moreno in second place for president, and statistically tied for first with President Duterte in the vice presidential race. The 1Sambayan convenors group then included Moreno as one of the people they are choosing to run for president. Moreno begged off, as he was concentrating on his mayoral duties.

By June, Moreno informed them that they are declining their offer. On September, Moreno was named president of Aksyon Demokratiko, the party founded by the late Raul Roco. Moreno announced his candidacy on September 22; his running mate will be Dr. Willie Ong.

Willie Ong (Aksyon)
Ong will be the running mate of Moreno; their ticket was officially announced on September 22, 2021.

Manny Pacquiao (PROMDI)

Boxing promoter Bob Arum said in June 2020 that Manny Pacquiao told him that he'd run for president instead of defending his Senate seat in 2022. A few days later, Pacquiao denied talking to Arum about politics.

A year after that, sports official and former Bacolod mayor and representative Monico Puentebella said that Pacquiao is running for president, and that he was authorized by the latter to talk about politics.

In September 2021, Pacquiao said that he only had three options in politics: run for president, run for reelection in the Senate, or retire from politics altogether.

On September 19, he accepted the nomination of the PDP-Laban faction led by senator Koko Pimentel. On October 1, 2021, Pacquiao filed his certificate of candidacy for the presidency under PROMDI, the party founded by the late Cebu governor Lito Osmeña.

Lito Atienza (PROMDI)

Buhay Party-List representative Lito Atienza was chosen by Pacquiao as his vice presidential running mate.
