MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Sometimes, world leaders follow Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s lead (withdrawal from the International Criminal Court, war on illegal drugs). Then sometimes, Duterte follows the lead of other world leaders.
Indonesia is set to move its capital from congested Jakarta and off the main island of Java.
That lit a bulb light for Duterte who is now mulling moving the Philippines’ capital from overcrowded, filthy, traffic-ridden and overrated Manila to the beautiful, peaceful, law-abiding and stress-free city of Davao.
There are also unconfirmed reports that the President also wants to move the country’s Summer Capital from Baguio City to the new, improved and cleansed Boracay.
