Duterte’s daughter takes oath as vice president

MANILA, PHILIPPINES (AP) – Sara Duterte, the daughter of the outgoing populist president of the Philippines, took her oath yesterday as vice president following a landslide electoral victory she clinched despite her father’s human rights record that saw thousands of drug suspects gunned down.

The inauguration in their southern hometown of Davao, where she’s the outgoing mayor, comes two weeks before she assumes office on June 30 as specified in the Philippine Constitution. President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr, Duterte’s running mate, will take his oath in Manila on June 30.
