MANILA, Philippines — The “UniTeam” of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Vice President Sara Duterte remains intact, the Chief Executive said on Tuesday. 

“If you remember ‘Uniteam’ is not just one party of two parties or three parties. It’s the unification of all political, hopefully all political forces in the Philippines to come together for the good country,” Marcos said. 


Marcos and Duterte ran and won under the “UniTeam” banner in the  2022 national elections.


“And that is still there. It is still vibrant. It is still working, and we will continue,” Marcos added. 

The vice president’s father, former president Rodrigo Duterte, had earlier accused Marcos of being a drug user, claiming that he had was shown evidence of his narcotics use.

Asked in an interview Vietnam where he is on an official visit how his relationship with Sara Duterte is, Marcos said “it’s exactly the same.” 

According to Marcos, Vice President Duterte has echoed none of her family members’ statements, so nothing has changed. 

While the vice president did not explicitly state if she agreed or disagreed with her brother Davao City Mayor Sebastian Duterte’s call for Marcos to resign over the weekend, she justified that her brother’s did it out of brotherly love. 

“I can only surmise that he is coming from a place of brotherly love, coupled [with] the common sentiment that I do not deserve the despicable treatment that I am receiving from some sectors within the circle of the President,” Vice President Duterte said in a previous statement.
