Description:
The Vice-President of the Philippines (, informally, "Ang Panagalawang Pangulo" or "Bise-Presidente" from Spanish)) is the second-highest executive official of the government of the Republic of the Philippines. The official residence and office of the Vice-President of the Philippines is the Coconut Palace, CCP Complex, Pasay City.

Description

<br>The Vice-President is the first in the Philippine line of succession, assuming the Presidency upon the death, resignation, or removal by impeachment and subsequent conviction of the incumbent. The position was abolished by Martial Law in 1972, and was not included in the original text of the 1973 Constitution. Amendments to this version restored the position in time for the "snap" elections of 1986.The present constitution retains the position.

Unlike other countries, the Vice-President has no official responsibilities other than those assigned by the incumbent President. Traditions governing the position date back to the Philippine Commonwealth, and its inaugural holder, Sergio OsmeƱa (while there was a similarly named position in governments prior to the First Philippine Republic, the position did not exist under what is considered the first official national government set up in 1898). This includes the Vice-President to be given the highest-ranking cabinet portfolio.
