Sara Duterte Resigns from Marcos Cabinet

Vice President Sara Duterte has made a significant decision as she resigns from key government positions, including her role in President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s Cabinet, as Secretary of the Department of Education (DepEd), and as Vice Chairperson of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).

The Presidential Communications Office (PCO) issued an official statement confirming Duterte’s resignation. According to the PCO, on June 19, 2024, at 2:21 pm, Vice President Sara Z. Duterte personally visited Malacañang to submit her resignation, effective July 19, 2024.

Reasons for Resignation

Despite the public announcement of her resignation, Duterte has chosen not to disclose specific reasons for her decision to step down from these pivotal roles. This lack of explanation has sparked speculation and debate among the public and political observers alike.

While relinquishing her positions within the Marcos administration and education sector, Vice President Duterte has affirmed her commitment to continue serving the Filipino people in her capacity as Vice President of the Philippines. The PCO expressed appreciation for her dedicated service in various governmental capacities.

Reactions and Public Response

The PCO‘s statement regarding Duterte’s resignation garnered a diverse range of reactions from the public, as evidenced by the comments section on their Facebook post.

  • Supportive Comments: Some individuals praised Duterte’s contributions, particularly citing her efforts in the field of education. A commenter noted, “As a public school teacher, Ma’am Sara Duterte has done her very best for DepEd.”
  • Criticism and Concerns: Conversely, there were critical voices questioning Duterte’s tenure, including remarks highlighting perceived shortcomings. A commenter expressed disappointment, stating, “Her true character has been revealed. She did nothing for DepEd. Even as Vice President, she made no comments about China.”


Vice President Sara Duterte’s resignation from key government positions marks a significant moment in Philippine politics, prompting reflection on her contributions and the future trajectory of national leadership. As the nation absorbs this development, there is an opportunity for renewed focus on transparency and accountability within government roles.

Moving forward, the public stands to benefit from a reevaluation of leadership priorities and a heightened emphasis on effective governance, ensuring continued progress and responsiveness to the needs of the Filipino people.
