MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Today is the last day of campaigning for  the May 9 Philippine presidential elections. It is also the day when the candidates and political parties hold their final campaign rallies — called ‘Miting de Avance.’

When supporters of presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo show up for the Miting de Avance today at Rizal Park (Luneta), they will notice something very different: the national monument of national hero Dr. Jose Rizal is gone!

The Adobo Chronicles learned that the city government of Manila decided to excavate and relocate the monument to an undisclosed place to accommodate the millions of people who are expected to attend the Duterte rally.

While a spokesperson for Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada declined to say where the monument has been moved to, he assured us that this was only temporary.  “The monument will be back in Luneta after the May 9 elections,” he said.

Estrada seems to be unusually accommodating to Mayor Duterte these days!
