DAVAO City Administrator Jesus Melchor Quitain said on Saturday that there is no way City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte would be cheated by fellow presidential candidates.
"They would not be able to cheat. Because the people, the Filipinos, themselves are the ones watching," Quitain said in an interview Saturday.
He also said that the recent attacks thrown at Duterte by the other candidates only showed the admiration of the people for him.
"When they aired the negative advertisements against Duterte, it was the people who defended him. That's the indication that the people love Duterte," he said.
It was a desperate move from the opposing candidates to ruin the mayor, he said.
"They are getting any stone that they can pick to throw at the leading candidate."
However, he said that the people have already made up their minds in favor of Duterte.
"I was in Manila a few weeks ago, ang mga tao dun, Duterte talaga ang gusto nila kahit government employees."
He also said that despite what they say that he has a dirty mouth, the people don't mind because they want change in the government.
"The only person who can make a difference is President Duterte," he concluded.
