OVP in Mandaluyong
Meanwhile, Vice President Sara Duterte will hold her official duties at Mandaluyong City rather than the Quezon City Reception House.
Muncayac explained that the new office will accommodate all the OVP’s co-term, casual, and permanent employees, which will “enhance efficiency, economy, and result in streamlined processes since all the OVP employees are within the same area.”
This location is expected to be more accessible to the public, as it is located near major highways and public transportation.
