She just took a break, guys!
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has denied reports that she is resigning from her post. "There is no truth to that rumor. I heard it. I just enjoyed reading the comments of those on Facebook about the rumor," she told reporters.
Duterte-Carpio went on vacation leave a day after attending the inauguration of her father President Duterte. Edith Regalado of The Philippine Star reported that Duterte-Carpio had some "contractual obligations" to fulfill before she worked full-time as mayor.
If anything, this resignation rumor only proves that Duterte-Carpio's moves will be followed closely by the media. Such is the burden of being the First Daughter. It may be recalled that she was also rumored to be recording her first solo album, which she refutes as a "Bilibid prisoner recording joke" on her Instagram account.
Duterte-Carpio is flying to Manila on Monday, July 25, to attend her father’s first State of the Nation Address.
