Paolo resigned during a special session on Monday citing “delicadeza.”

“I am grateful to all the Dabawenyos for your support to my office and I look forward to the day that I will be able to serve our country again,” he said.
President Rodrigo Duterte said on Monday night that he would not stop his son Paolo from resigning as Davao City vice mayor.
“You are in a position to do what is right. Kung ano lang ang tama sa iyo, gawin mo (Do whatever you think is right),” he told reporters in Davao City.
The President, however, has yet to announce if he already accepted Paolo’s resignation. /jpv
