DAVAO CITY (UPDATE) - President Rodrigo Duterte skipped Thursday the miting de avance of Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) in his bailiwick Davao City.

Duterte was supposed to attend the miting de avance, but his former top aide, Senate aspirant Bong Go, said the President was tired and had to take some rest.

The President came from a campaign sortie in Bohol on Wednesday to support the gubernatorial bid of former Cabinet Secretary Leoncio “Jun” Evasco.

Duterte’s presence at the HNP miting de avance would have been his first.

Throughout the campaign period, Duterte only attended the campaign sorties of PDP-Laban and his guest candidates.
