      The first State of the Nation Address of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr offers the Filipinos a glimpse of what we should expect from the government, what we should prepare for, and what we should do to help the administration not only achieve its development agenda but also support its initiatives for the Philippines to become strong and a stable country in Asia, able to respond to the needs of the Filipinos even in the face of anxieties brought by disputes and disagreements happening between some countries that could hurt our economy.

    • Statement on Ateneo Shooting

      Posted in VP Sara - Statements on Jul 24, 2022

      Vice President Sara Z. Duterte strongly condemns the shooting incident inside Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) campus Sunday afternoon.

      Such an act of violence should have no place in our society, especially in a place of learning — which is supposed to be considered a safe space for everyone, for the students mainly.

      The Vice President sends her prayers and deepest condolences to the victims' families.

      The Philippine National Police is also strongly urged to address gun violence in the country — and consistent operations against illegal firearms could be one of the effective measures to do ...


    • On the question of SONA attire

      Posted in VP Sara - Statements on Jul 22, 2022

      Vice President Sara Duterte will depart from the traditional Filipiñana and honor her kababayans from the Bagobo Tagabawa tribe of Davao City.

      Unfortunately, an entire ensemble would take over a month to make by tribal artisans, which will not make it on time for Monday’s SONA. VP Sara Duterte will instead borrow a Bagobo Tagabawa traditional dress from Bae Sheirelle Anino, the Deputy Mayor of the Tagabawa tribe of Davao City.

      Thank you.

      Atty. Reynold Munsayac
      Spokesperson of VP Sara Z. Duterte

      DepEd will prepare a plan to be reviewed by the President. No details are forthcoming anytime so...


    • VP Sara Z. Duterte on wearing of uniforms for public school learners

      Posted in VP Sara - Statements on Jul 18, 2022

      Even before the pandemic, it is not a strict requirement for public schools to wear uniforms (DepEd Order No. 065, s. 2010) to avoid incurring additional costs to the families of our learners. All the more that it will not be required this School Year given the increasing prices and economic losses due to the pandemic.
