Vice Mayor of Davao City

The Vice Mayor is the second-highest official of the city.[1] The vice mayor is elected via popular vote; although most mayoral candidates have running mates, the vice mayor is elected separately from the mayor. This can result in the mayor and the vice mayor coming from different political parties.[1]

The Vice Mayor is the presiding officer of the Davao City Council, although he can only vote as the tiebreaker. When a mayor is removed from office, the vice mayor becomes the mayor until the scheduled next election. As of now the incumbent is Paolo Duterte.[1]
