“Once ma proclaim ka, pwede naman anytime mag oath taking, nag set ta og date pero wala pa ta nagplano kay wala pa ta kahibalo kung kanus-a ang proclamation basin molampas pa sya og June 19, pero nag set na ta og date na just in case ang proclamation will happen before June 19 (Once proclaimed, I can take my oath anytime. We set a date but we have not planned anything yet because we don’t know when the proclamation will happen or it may happen beyond June 19. But we initially set a date just in case it will happen before June 19),” the presumptive Vice President, who is leading by 22 million votes, said.

Duterte will assume the post on June 30, when the term of office of Vice President Leni Robredo ends.
She said she wants the inauguration here so Dabawenyos can witness her take her oath as vice president.
“I think angay lang pud na dire sa ato kay it will be the pride of Davao region and Davao City nga makakita sa isa ka oath taking sa usa ka vice president (I think it’s just proper that we will have it here because it will be the pride of Davao Region and Davao City to witness the oath taking of a vice president),” she said.
She said that her team is doing initial groundwork for the transition.
Duterte added that she has yet to coordinate with the Office of the Vice President for the transition, pending her proclamation. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)
