‘Di uso ang partido abroad! Duterte credits OFWs for 2016 win
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday said the widespread support from overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) helped him clinched the presidential election in 2016.
“Mabuti’t na lang ngayon nanalo ako dahil talaga sa inyo,” Duterte told OFWs at the Royal Cultural Palace in Jordan.
The chief executive also boasted he won the presidency independent of political parties.
“Walang partido. Walang Nacionalista, Liberal, wala. Basta dito mo makita outside of the Philippines ang effect ng talagang free will ng tao,” the President said.
“Lahat ng OFW nag-landslide ako, even in America. [applause] Wala mang partidoo-partido doon. So… Kayo dito, wala rin. Basta kung ano lang ang naririnig ninyo, anong nababasa ninyo,” he added.
