The San Pedro Square in Davao City is being readied for the inauguration of vice president-elect Sara Duterte on June 19, according to Ian Cruz’s “24 Oras” report on Friday.
The camp of Duterte is currently coordinating with the office of Vice President Leni Robredo for the process of the turnover of the office.
Barry Gutierrez, the spokesperson of Robredo, assured preparations are ongoing for the turnover.
Robredo will return to the country next week from New York where she attended the graduation of her youngest daughter, Jillian. Her two other daughters were also with them.
“VP Leni will be more than ready to actually meet with her, to talk about whatever she wants to talk about. Pero right now, since wala pang gano’ng pinapaabot sa amin, hindi ko alam kung mangyayari ‘yan,” Gutierrez said.
“Si VP Binay, in 2016, made time for her, nag-usap sila. And you know, she really appreciated the gesture,” he added.
Duterte has yet to decide where to hold office when she assumes the vice presidency.
According to a source of GMA News, the Coconut Palace in the CCP Complex in Pasay City is one of the possible places where Duterte will work. This was not yet confirmed by her camp.
Meanwhile, personnel of the Coconut Palace were seen cleaning the area.
Officials of the Government Service Insurance System, which owns the place, said that this was a regular maintenance of the building.
Duterte earlier said she wants to establish satellite offices in different regions to bring services closer to the people.—Richa Noriega/LDF, GMA News
