The rift between the Marcos and Duterte factions escalated this year, with the Dutertes launching numerous attacks against Marcos Jr. However, Vice President Duterte chose to remain silent amidst the tension.

In January, Davao City Mayor Sebastian Duterte challenged Marcos Jr. to resign, coinciding with his father’s supporters protesting against Charter change during Marcos’ Bagong Pilipinas rally in Manila.

Former President Duterte also accused Marcos Jr. of drug use, prompting Marcos Jr. to attribute the accusations to the effects of fentanyl, a painkiller the former president admitted to using. Additionally, in March, Duterte criticized Marcos Jr.’s frequent international travels, which Marcos Jr. brushed off.
