Duterte also resigned from her position as the vice chair of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-Elcac).

“At 2:21 pm of 19 June 2024, Vice President Sara Duterte went to Malacanang and tendered her resignation as Member of the Cabinet, Secretary of the Department of Education and Vice Chairperson of the NTF-Elcac, effective 19 July 2024,” said the Palace.

Duterte has been noticeably absent from Marcos’ events in the past weeks, failing to attend his departure ceremonies to Singapore and Brunei.

She also did not attend various law-signing ceremonies in Malacanang, including a law that granted additional allowances to teachers. - Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN
