President Rodrigo Duterte opted not to cast his vote in the barangay and SK elections Monday, May 14, since almost all of the candidates were his friends.
Duterte said he does not want to choose any of the candidates to be fair to all of them who supported his presidential bid in 2016.
“Purely political. Lahat yung tumakbo kaibigan ko. Almost all were my supporters in the last election. And, they would never believe that nag boto ako only sa kanila. Sa tingin ko the better option would really be to skip the voting. Ayaw ko magduda sila,” Duterte explained.
