WITH 99.06 percent of the 1,172 clustered precincts counted, Davao City Vice Mayor Sara Duterte leads the mayoral race with more than 222,653 votes against closest rival, House Speaker Prospero Nograles.
As of 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sara got 380,268 votes against Nograles' 157,615 votes.
In the vice mayoral race, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte is leading with 431,244 over his rival former mayor Benjamin de Guzman with 103,963.
Supporters of the Dutertes went to the City Council session hall Tuesday where the Board of Canvassers was and to wait for the proclamation of the father-daughter tandem.
There are eight areas in the city, mostly in the hinterlands, which have yet to transmit election results.
Davao City election officer Danilo Cullo said distance and absence of communication signal caused the transmission delay of election results from polling precincts.
Cullo made a decision to declare the results as official, stating the remaining margin "had little and insignificant effect to the results even if they are added to the onhand result."
"We have called the main office in Manila to allow us to proclaim. We have no definite time when we can finish all the consolidation. Parang hindi na magagawa talaga, so the board have agreed that we will allow a declaration," Cullo said.
The proclamation comes after the final printing of results.
