Boyet Dy, head of Robredo’s transition team, said in a statement, “While we have been preparing for a joint inauguration, we respect their decision and will begin our own preparations for a simple and modest ceremony.”

Robredo will have her inauguration in Metro Manila, and will be sworn in by a barangay captain from her hometown, Camarines Sur. Dy said, “She wishes to be sworn in by Captain Ronaldo Coner of Barangay Punta Tarawal, Calabanga, the smallest, farthest, and poorest barangay in Camarines Sur.”

As previously stated, Duterte will have his oath-taking ceremony on June 30 at the Office of the President in Malacañang Palace, because according to him: “kasi walang gastos.”
