Fresh News: On December 25, exactly at Christmas Day, Paolo Duterte resigned as Davao City Vice Mayor amid a special session of the Davao City Council, which he leads.

The younger Duterte said he chose to leave out of "delicadeza", after he was blamed in Congressional hearings for being associated with the pirating of billions worth of shabu from China and his open social media conflict with Isabelle Duterte, his daughter.

Harry Roque, Presidential Spokesperson says Malacañang is sitting tight for the President and his son to talk and discuss the latter's decision of his resignation as Davao City's Vice Mayor.

Roque told in an interview with a radio station, that it is already expected that the President and Paolo will have a Father and Son talk and he will provide the Palace statement on the resignation of Paolo Duterte after the President himself speaks with his son.

"I was told that that father and son will have a talk," said Presidential Spokesman.

However, Spox Roque did not give any more insights about when the discourse will occur and added that in past circumstances like this, Malacañang regularly acknowledges the resignation of local officials, but in this case, the Palace is waiting for Pres. Duterte to get through to his son.

Spox said, "Well, most resignations in my view are usually accepted but in this incident, the Palace is waiting for the President to communicate with his son, Vice Mayor Pulong,"

Meanwhile, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said the President knew in advance of Paolo's arrangement to leave, but she declined to give more points of interest, saying it would be up to the President to stand up on the issue.
