According to leading presidential candidate Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr., leading vice presidential candidate Sara Duterte-Carpio has agreed to be secretary of the Department of Education (DepEd) if elected.

“I’ve already been authorized to announce the first nominee we will be giving to the Commission on Appointments when the time comes should I be proclaimed. That is that our incoming Vice President has agreed to take the Department of Education,” Marcos Jr. said in a televised speech.

“Tinanong ko sa kanya kung kaya nya yung trabaho dahil mahirap ang trabaho ng secretary of education. Pero nag-agree naman siya,” he added.

Marcos believes that Duterte agreed to take the education department since she is a mother looking after for her children.

“Palagay ko kasama na diyan dahil she is a mother, and she wants to make sure her children are well trained, well educated, that’s the best motivation we can hope for,” he said.
