MANILA - Presidential hopeful Jose Montemayor, Jr. on Monday cast his ballot in Pampanga.

Montemayor, a doctor and a lawyer, voted at the Sto. Tomas Elementary School in Sasmuan, Pampanga at 8 a.m.

The final survey of Pulse Asia conducted in April showed that 0.1 percent of 2,400 respondents back his presidential bid.

The standard bearer of the Democratic Party of the Philippines advocated for protecting the rights of Filipino migrant workers by adding more lawyers in embassies in place of what he called “white elephant” foreign service employees who are allegedly lax in their jobs.

He also pushed for the provision of social support and legal, civil, and medical assistance to overseas Filipino workers.

Montemayor's running mate Rizalito David cast his vote at Tibagan High School, West Rembo, Makati City at around 9 a.m.

David earlier said he also supports Vice President Leni Robredo's presidential bid as she has a chance of thwarting the Marcoses' return to power.

Former Sen. Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. topped the final presidential preference survey of Pulse Asia. This year's elections has 10 presidential candidates.
