MANILA — The Senate on Monday approved the P2.3 billion budget for 2023 for the Office of the Vice President (OVP).

Vice President Sara Duterte-Carpio can not be reached for comment on this posting Monday regarding her office’s budget which has P500 million in confidential funds.

“The budget of the Office of the Vice President is submitted,” Senate President Pro Tempore Loren Legarda said.

Only Senate Minority Leader Koko Pimentel questioned the funding for the OVP.

He questioned the confidential funds and said that he will call for its deletion at the “proper time.”
