Malacañang Speaks on Offers of Marcos Admin to Pres. Duterte

MALACAÑANG – The Palace revealed the decision of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on the drug czar offer of the administration of president-elect Bongbong Marcos.

The 6-year presidential term of Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte is set to end on June 30, 2022. Recently, he expressed that he will return to being a private citizen after his term. He has always been vocal about his desire to go back home to Davao City.

However, amid the end of the term of Pres. Duterte drawing near, there are a lot of speculations and questions whether or not the outgoing Chief Executive will have a position under the next administration. During the Elections 2022, there were attempts for him to run for vice president or senator but none of it was pushed through.


The incoming president, Bongbong Marcos, previously expressed his openness to giving Pres. Duterte a position in his Cabinet. He stressed that he and the President are friends for a long time already since the latter was still the mayor of Davao City.

Recently, Malacañang spoke on the offers of the incoming administration of president-elect Bongbong Marcos to Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the Palace said that the outgoing President was offered to be the drug czar.

According to Malacañang, Pres. Duterte declined to be the drug czar under the administration of president-elect Bongbong Marcos. Based on the report, acting presidential spokesman Martin Andanar stressed that it was the offer that appeared in newspapers.

The Duterte administration has maintained its focus on the war against drugs throughout its six-year term. Back when he was still running for the presidency, he promised to end the country’s drug problem in six (6) months but it did not happen. He admitted that he might have miscalculated the extent of the drug problem in the country.

Meanwhile, the President is vocal about his hope that the war against drugs will be continued by the next administration.
