Duterte on Robredo as President, NO because she is INCOMPETENT!

Straight to the point- Robredo is INCOMPETENT!

That is how President Rodrigo Roa Duterte described her Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo.

In a chance interview with the President in Clark, Pampanga, he clarifies that he will not resign as President of the country if the one who will replace her is the constitutionally mandated to succeed the president- the Vice President which is Leni Robredo.

“Siya ang mag-presidente (She will become president)? Look, I will not resign because it will make her president. My resignation is addressed to the people para makapili sila ng gusto nila (so that they can choose who they want). Siya, I don’t think she can ever be ready to govern my country. Reason? Incompetence,” he said.

This comes after the announcement that the Vice President made it public that she is more than willing to unite and lead the opposition against the Duterte administration.

“Maraming mga grupo na pareho naman iyong paniniwala. Maraming mga grupo na pareho naman iyong mga issues na gustong salungatin. Pero dahil hindi nag-usap-usap, hindi napapag-isa iyong boses. At iyon iyong role na gusto kong i-take—na siguraduhin na iyong mga boses na nagkakaisa ay lalong mapag-isa para lalong mapakinggan, siguraduhin na iyong mensaheng gustong ipaabot mas maintindihan, at hikayatin iyong iba din iyong paniniwala na makiisa,” Robredo said.

“Maraming mga kababayan na nagsasabi sa akin na kailangan ng leader, at parati kong sinasabi na iyong sa atin, obligasyon nating lahat, ‘di ba—obligasyon nating lahat na ipaabot iyong saloobin natin,” she said.

“Obligasyon nating lahat na sumalungat kung kailangang sumalungat. Pero it is becoming apparent na mas malakas iyong loob ng iba na magboses kapag mayroong sinasandalan na grupo, mayroong sinasandalan na grupo na pareho iyong paniniwala sa kaniya. At iyon iyong role ko: na pag-isahin iyong mga boses na iyon,” the VP added.

Robredo being the highest elected official of the opposition is trying to make headway for the upcoming mid term elections and the only way to make a big statement against the administration id to present a united front for the opposition.

Who will succeed Duterte after change of government?


Duterte clarifies that he would like the next leader to head the transitory government should be elected by the people and not because of “succession.”

“Wala. Hindi ako papayag ng succession (No. I won’t agree to a succession). Would you think that the other guy is better than me,” the President  said.

“[It should be through an] election. Madaming magandang lalaki diyan. Mamili lang kayo (There are a lot of good guys out there. Just choose one),” he added.

Yesterday (Monday) the President in his speech said that he is no longer interested in leading the transitory government and wanted a “younger” new leader to lead the transition.
