DAVAO CITY, Philippines  —  Despite the decisive victory of his children in the elections,  President Duterte said it is better for them to get out of politics.

“The earlier... the better,” Duterte told reporters after voting at the Daniel Aguinaldo National High School on Monday.

On the possibility that his daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio would take his place when he steps down, the President warned her against running for president.

“The presidency will not educate you. It will just destroy you,”  Duterte said.

The President’s children  won by a landslide in the elections here.

Carpio succeeded in her reelection bid as she got 565,284 votes. Her opponent Jun Marcellones garnered only 4,165 votes.

The tally is from 97.01 percent or 1,105 of the 1,139 clustered precincts.

Carpio’s runningmate and brother Sebastian, who ran unopposed, got 543,317 votes.

Paolo, a former vice mayor, got a total of 195,074 votes as representative of the first district of this city.

Carpio’s partymates in Hugpong sa Tawong Lungsod, Vince Garcia and Isidro Ungab, ran unopposed as second and third district representatives, respectively.
