LEADING presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte has cast his vote at the Daniel Aguinaldo National High School, in Davao City.
Wearing a red plaid shirt, Duterte arrived at the school at past 3 p.m. with his 11-year-old daughter, Veronica, in tow.
He was the last to vote among the five presidential candidates.
Vice President Jejomar Binay voted early morning in Makati. He was followed by Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, in Quezon City, while Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, formerly interior secretary, cast his vote in his home city of Roxas, in the central Philippine province of Capiz, and Sen. Grace Poe voted in San Juan, Metro Manila.
The final major opinion poll ahead of Monday’s vote showed Duterte widening his lead, with 33 percent of respondents choosing him as the country’s next President. CATHERINE S. VALENTE
