Armchair used by Duterte to vote to be preserved

THE teachers of Daniel R. Aguinaldo National High School (DRANHS) are planning to put the chair used by presidential frontrunner Rodrigo Duterte on May 9 elections in a museum in Davao City.

The wooden armchair which Duterte used when he cast his vote on May 9 has been getting a lot of attention in social media after it was posted on Facebook with a caption that says, "historical".

Right after election day, DRANHS teacher marked the chair. Using masking tape and a blue marker pen, the chair now has this marking: "The historical chair used by Mayor Rody Duterte while casting vote in the May 9, 2016 national election BEI's: Chairman: Mary Rose Digal Poll Clerk: Marites Cabilogan Member: Molly Bacud Support staff: Jessa Gina.

The armchair will most likely end up in Museo Dabawenyo for safekeeping and as a souvenir of this year's election, the first time that a Mindanaoan was to be proclaimed as the nation's highest leader.

As of press time on Wednesday, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) have not released the official result of the voting yet as they are still waiting for the election returnees from far-flung regions.

Duterte is a clear winner by the way with several millions of lead from the other candidates who already conceded to him publicly.
