DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – Citing delicadeza (honor and integrity), Paolo Duterte resigned today, Christmas Day, as Vice Mayor of Davao City.
He made the surprising announcement before the City Council.
His resignation sent shockwaves across Davao and the rest of the country and Filipinos had mixed feelings about it. But not Senator Antonio Trillanes. He is devastated.
In a statement released to The Adobo Chronicles, Trillanes said it deeply saddens him that he can no longer pursue his demand for the Vice Mayor to undress and show his tattoo. Trillanes made this repeated demand during a Senate hearing many weeks ago.
A lost opportunity, indeed.
