In a few days, Sara Duterte-Carpio will be sworn in as the 15th vice president of the Philippines.
Duterte-Carpio's inauguration will be held on June 19 in Davao City's San Pedro Square at 3 PM, ahead of her running-mate president-elect Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr., who will be sworn in on June 30 at the National Museum in Manila. The VP-elect chose an early inauguration so she can be in attendance at Marcos Jr.'s ceremony.
Before her inauguration, Duterte-Carpio said she would be spending the night at home. The event also happens to fall on Father's Day—her father, outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte, will reportedly be in attendance.
Supreme Court Justice Ramon Paul L. Hernando will administer the vice president's Oath of Office.
"He is a former professor. He and his wife are my good friends for over 10 years," Duterte-Carpio said about the choice.
Meanwhile, San Pedro Square was chosen as the venue because it's between the Davao City Hall and San Pedro Cathedral. The event will begin with a thanksgiving mass at the said chapel to be attended by Archbishop Romulo Valles. She will also use a new Bible, which was gifted to her, for the oath-taking.
As for her attire, Duterte-Carpio will don a gown by Silverio Anglacer. While it's not yet known if the dress will be in the VP-elect's green campaign color, the designer already shared an outline of the gown online.
The University of Mindanao Alumni will be singing the Philippine National Anthem.
There will also be a thanksgiving concert after the inaugural ceremony with performances from Andrew E, Isay Alvarez, Robert Seña, Njel de Mesa, Wency Cornejo, Duncan Ramos, Arci Muños, Rodjun Cruz, Sanya Lopez, and more.
Although Duterte-Carpio will be inaugurated on June 19, her duties as Vice President will only begin on June 30.
Aside from serving as the vice president, Duterte-Carpio has also been appointed by Marcos Jr. as the next Department of Education secretary.
