Cebu province has an estimated 2.7 million registered votes.
The biggest boost to Duterte’s route to Malacanang came as One Cebu, headed by the politically powerful Garcia clan, announced on Saturday, April 2, that it was supporting Duterte, standard bearer of the Pilipino Demokratiko Pilipino/Laban (PDP/Laban).
The coalition earlier said it was supporting the bid of Vice President Jejomar BInay of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA).
