Sara Duterte as president not farfetched, Robredo says

Vice President Leni Robredo is honest enough to admit that it would not be surprising if another Duterte would be occupying Malacanang after president Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s term.

Robredo says since there is no anti-political dynasty law that prohibits such scenario.

“Congress has not passed an enabling law to give heart and soul to that constitutional provision. So it would not at all be surprising for another Duterte to become president,” Robredo said in a recent interview with Bloomberg.

Presidential daughter Davao city Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio earlier said she would “pray for wisdom” on whether or not to pursue the presidency in the national elections of 2022.

Her options are open

It was in the same interview that the Vice president was asked if she will run for the presidency in 2022, Robredo also said she is keeping her options open regarding the 2022 presidential race, saying, “If you ask me now, I have no plans, but I am leaving everything open.”

“When I ran for the vice presidency, that was one of the pre-requisites, that I’m ready to be president. Because the mandate of the Philippine vice president is to take over if anything happens to the president. So, I would not have run for the vice presidency if I thought that I was not ready for the presidency,” she said.

President Duterte has been quoted saying that he does not want Robredo to be his successor, calling her “incompetent” and “weak.”
