Robredo “was fired for Incompetence" - Malacanang




There are matters you don’t do when your boss is the Republic of the Philippines.

Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo insisted that Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo “was fired for incompetence, in addition to her failure to introduce new measures she claimed she had, as against what she claimed to be ineffective method in fighting the drug menace.”

Atty. Panelo added: “She was weighed and found wanting.”

The Vice President has been a consistent critic of President Duterte’s war on illegal drugs.

In an interview last October 23, Robredo said the war on drugs “was not working,” angering Duterte.

Calling the bluff of the Vice President, Duterte offered the position of being the Drug czar, and against the advice of her allies in the Liberal Party the former accepted the offer on November 6.


When Robredo asked for the list of the high value targets being kept by the government last week, the law enforcement agencies had their own apprehensions and the President made it public that she does not trust the Vice President to handle the list with utmost secrecy.

“He should be direct with me. I’m a straight talker,” she said. “If he does not want me here anymore … and wants to take back the appointment, he should just say the word.” said the Vice President , after hearing that the Duterte does not trust her.

Duterte, called the bluff of Robredo again and fired her over the weekend., she was only in the position for 18 days.
