LIVE: Inauguration of Rodrigo Duterte and Leni Robredo
MANILA, Philippines – On Thursday, June 30, the country will usher in its new leaders: Rodrigo Duterte, the 16th President of the Philippines, and Leni Robredo, the 14th Vice President of the Philippines.
Duterte, who was the mayor of Davao City for more than two decades, clinched a landslide victory in the May polls. He ran on an anti-crime platform, promising to curb drugs and corruption, and rose to power despite the controversies that have hounded him.
Robredo, a lawmaker from Camarines Sur, won by a razor-thin margin against her closest rival, Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. Robredo's camp has said that she would "hit the ground running" and not just be a spare tire.
Duterte and Robredo will be sworn in separately, and Rappler will stream both inaugurations. Bookmark this page to watch live.
