MANILA, Philippines — Leyte Rep. Martin Romualdez on Sunday congratulated Vice President-elect Sara Duterte on her inauguration as the second highest official in the Philippines, adding that she had made her father, outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte, proud.

“By her victory, she has done her father, President Duterte, her family and her constituents proud. It’s just apt that she wants to begin her term as Vice President in her home city,” said Romualdez in a statement.

“More importantly, the victory of Mayor Sara and President-elect Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. is the triumph of the more than 31 million Filipinos who shared their message of unity for the country and their aspiration of a better life for our people,” he added.
