President Duterte’s oldest son, vice mayor Paolo Duterte, has officially resigned from his post.
He cited that one of the reasons behind it is the involvement of his name in the P6.4 billion shabu shipment issue.
Another reason for his immediate resignation is the controversial public fight with his daughter, Isabelle Duterte.
The controversial vice mayor of Davao City, Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte has officially resigned. According to Rappler, the younger Duterte made the announcement during a special session of the city council during the Christmas Day.
The resignation of the vice mayor is effective on the same day, December 25.
My parents never failed to remind me of the value of kind-honored principle of delicadeza, and this is one of those instances of my life.
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.
Real Reason Behind It
Pulong Duterte clarified the reason behind his resignation and said that the two things that pushed him to resign are the P6.4 billion shabu shipment in the Bureau of Customs and his controversial fight with her daughter.
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.
