Congressman-elect of First District of Davao City Pulong Duterte congratulated his closest political ally former PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa and former special assistant to President Christopher “Bong” Go for winning the senatorial elections.
In a post, Pulong expressed his happiness after his friends who are not so known in the whole country in the past several years ago suddenly got elected to a powerful position in the government.
“The leap of faith has been proven by the faithful! Senators Bong Go and Bato! CONGRATULATIONS!!” Pulong said in his post.
Go and Bato both served the government after President Rodrigo Duterte won the elections in 2016 and became known nationwide because of their vocal support to the chief executive.
They also vowed to help the Duterte government once they got elected.
Go got 19,535,952 votes as of writing while Bato got 17,964,775 which secured their victory.
Pulong also won via huge margin against his opponent for the congressman.
Some netizens said that the victory of Bato and Go might prove that the people widely supported the Duterte administration.
