Sara Zimmerman Duterte takes her oath of office as the 15th Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines in a ceremony at the San Pedro Square in Davao City on Father’s Day, 19 June 2022.
The historic ceremony, administered by Supreme Court Associate Justice Ramon Paul Hernando, is attended by no less than President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, members of the First Family, several public officials, personalities and the public who supported the Vice President since the ‘Mahalin Natin ang Pilipinas Ride’ which allowed her to traverse 46,000 kilometers across the country and visit 34 provinces with 70 official stopovers.
Her journey around the Philippine archipelago with her big bike allowed her to interact with Filipinos in local communities such as the indigenous people (IP), children, the elderly, public market vendors and other ordinary citizens who openly expressed their support for her Vice Presidential bid.
The outgoing Davao City Mayor won by a majority vote in the May 2022 National and Local Elections.
