In a hotel in Davao City presumptive president Rody Duterte finalized his intention not to personally attend his proclamation as the 16th President of the Philippines together with the incoming Vice President, Leni Robredo.
Although this is a very special event for any winners in elections, Mr. President said that he has never attended any proclamation in his political life. He announced this when the media was briefed recently. He would however address the people through a message in his local home town; said Bong Go, his executive assistant.
Duterte’s claim that he never attended such proclamations was vouched in by his running mate, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano to be true in the course of ten years in public office. His lawyers will be there on his behalf.
