Though incoming speaker of the House of Representatives stated that the shift from unitary to a federal-legislative form of government could eliminate the position of vice president. Davao del Norte Representative Pantaleon Alvarez told reporters that, "In a parliamentary set-up, walang VP". 

Adding, "Depende yan kung ano mapagkasunduan, if it's a Con-Con (constitutional convention) or Con-Ass (constituent assembly), kung ano mapagkasunduan dun (form of government)". Right now, Vice President-elect, Leni Robredo's role under Duterte in unclear as no offer has yet for Leni to receive, unlike past presidents.
