Issues With His Offsprings

One of the reasons behind the controversial resignation is the rift between Vice Mayor Duterte’s daughter, Isabelle Duterte, and her lavish photoshoot in the Malacañang Palace.


The said photoshoot caused a stir in social media and people began to question where Pulong Duterte got the funds for the pricey price tag of the photoshoot.

Just last weekend, Pulong also began getting criticism from netizens when a photo of his son and his girlfriend, having a vacation in Australia, began to surface.

There are recent unfortunate events in my life that are closely tied to my failed first marriage. These, among others, include maligning of my reputation in the recent name dropping incident in the Bureau of Customs smuggling case and the very public squabble with my daughter.

I hereby tender my resignation as Vice Mayor of Davao City effective today, December 25, 2017.
