“While losing an election hurts, nothing is more painful than the sight of a divided country. Thus, I call on all the other candidates to respect the people’s will and rally behind presumptive President-elect Rodrigo “Rody” Duterte and his presumptive Vice President-elect Leni Robredo.

“Let us begin the journey toward healing and unification.

“I am confident that Vice President-elect Leni will likewise respect and value the people’s will by giving her full support to the country’s new President and his vision to end the disorder in the people’s lives and introduce real change to our country.

“I call on the people to rally behind our newly elected leaders. It is in this crucial hour that our voice is needed the most. Let us work together and let the process of real change begin,” Senate Press Office.
