TOKYO, Japan — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. called the matter of Vice President Sara Duterte’s confidential funds “settled.”

“That was actually the initiative of the Vice President. I’m not actually talking about the confidential funds, and to not insist that they have such confidential funds, so I think as far as I’m concerned it is a settled issue,” said Marcos.

Congress had stripped Vice President Duterte of her controversial confidential funds in both the Office of the Vice President and the Department of Education, which she heads.

Marcos also confirmed House Speaker Martin Romualdez’s earlier statement that he will sign the 2024 budget on Wednesday.

“Yes, I think we are scheduled for Wednesday,” said Marcos.
