LP GAGAWIN ang LAHAT para makapasok sa Senatorial Position sa 2019 kung MANANALO si MARCOS sa RECOUNT!

VP Maria Leonor "Leni" Robredo was backed out of the Cabinet since she has lost the trust and certainty of the President, Palace official said on Monday. 

Robredo resigned as head of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) after being told by Cabinet Secretary Leoncio “Jun” Evasco Jr. that the President no longer wanted her to attend Cabinet meetings.

“The President no longer has the confidence and the trust to be in one room with the Vice President, and that is the official meeting between the President and Cabinet officials. That’s the Cabinet meeting,” Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said of Duterte’s order to Robredo to desist from attending Cabinet meetings.

Andanar said Duterte and Robredo have “irreconcilable differences” and that the two don’t see “eye to eye” on several issues such as the burial of former strongman Ferdinand Marcos and the Duterte administration’s war on drugs.
When asked about his personal views of Robredo, Andanar said the Vice President had “very intelligent and insightful ideas” and she “always fought for her department’s interests” during Cabinet meetings.

“She was never remiss of those opportunities when she had to put her foot down for the HUDCC, of course we’re all thankful for her service and we hope we could still work with her in the future,” he added.

The Palace official dismissed Robredo’s claim that there is a plot to oust her.
“That is speculation from the camp of the Vice President. That is for them to sort, that kind of speculation. It’s not the job of Cabinet officials and the administration to fire public officials,” he said.
“Our job is to institute reforms in this government and the best person to ask that question is the Vice President [herself],” Andanar added.

Liberal Party (LP) senators denounced Duterte's turn to drive Robredo out of the Cabinet, guaranteeing it is a piece of the plot to debilitate her political capital. 

Former Senate President Franklin Drilon said all past actions or inaction by the executive branch were clear manifestations that from the beginning, the administration does not want Robredo to succeed.

“The writings are on the wall. The administration wants the political capital of VP [Vice President] Robredo diminished by stripping her of any opportunity to fulfill her mandate as Cabinet member and head of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council [HUDCC],” Drilon noted.

“It was alarming. Where this sinister plot, if not prevented, would lead us is very ominous and disturbing,” Drilon said.
He called on the public to be vigilant because the administration could also seize control of the judiciary.

According to Drilon, Malacanang is poised to appoint majority of justices in the Supreme Court because eight justices will be retiring.

“By 2019, the administration would have appointed the majority of the justices in the Supreme Court. More than ever and most especially in times like this, the country needs a more independent, resolute and uncompromising Supreme Court,” he said.

Sen. Risa Hontiveros backed Robredo’s decision to resign. She said the Vice President was disrespected and objectified on many occasions by no less than the President himself.


“Her way of dressing was made an object of sexist remarks, she was subjected to inappropriate advances and was even reduced to well-rounded knees,” Hontiveros added.

Acting LP president Sen. Francis Pangilinan said Robredo was dealt with unreasonably by the organization due to her situation against Marcos' internment at the Libingan ng mga Bayani and the rebuilding of the death penalty.
