    “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.
