  • Ottawa – The Honourable Tobias C. Enverga Jr., Senator from Ontario, congratulates the President-elect of the Philippines, Mr. Rodrigo Duterte, on his election victory.

    “I wish to congratulate Mr. Duterte on his decisive election victory in the latest presidential elections in the Philippines,” said Senator Enverga in a statement.  “I wish him all the best on his term as President of my country of birth, and I hope that he will be successful with implementing his highly ambitious agenda on both domestic and international issues.  With the highest office of the country comes the greatest responsibility.  I want to take this opportunity to remind the President-elect of the duty to selflessly serve all the people to the best of his ability,” he continued.
