MANILA (UPDATE) — President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday descended Malacañang's staircase for the last time as the country's leader, in a symbol of stepping down from power. 
 
President-elect Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. accompanied his predecessor on the way to the Palace grounds, where Duterte was given departure honors. 

Duterte will fly home to his hometown Davao City via a commercial flight, former National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon said. 

"After this, ang alam ko, uuwi siya ng Davao... Magko-commercial flight siya, eh," said Esperon. 

(He will go home to Davao through a commercial flight.) 

Before leaving the Palace, the 77-year-old former Philippine leader took photos with his Cabinet members inside and urged the public to support his successor's administration.
