Sara Duterte talks with DepEd for smooth transition

 Vice President-elect Sara Duterte-Carpio has reached out to the Office of the Vice President (OVP) and the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Office of the Secretary to ensure a “smooth, orderly, and comprehensive transition.”

Duterte-Caprio’s spokesperson, Liloan Mayor Christina Frasco, on Saturday committed to disclose more information about the ongoing transition process as it is taking place.

Aside from winning the vice presidential race in the 2022 national election, Duterte-Carpio was also entrusted to lead the Education department in the incoming administration of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

"As the transition process is still ongoing entailing detailed discussions...information on the completion of this process will be released once available," Frasco added.

Duterte won the vice presidential race by a wide margin, after garnering a vote count of 32.21 million, accounting for over 61% of the total votes cast in the May 9 elections. She ran alongside President-elect Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. under the theme of unity.

While Briones earlier welcomed Duterte’s Cabinet position.

“It’s the prerogative of the incoming president to appoint members of his official family. He chose her (Duterte) and she accepted. But we are looking for continuity. She is fully aware of all our programs that we initiated at the Department of Education,” Briones said.
