Robredo urges gov't officials to set aside politics amid COVID-19 crisis




Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo calls out all government officials to do a supreme sacrifice by setting aside differences inpolitics in this time of a health crisis.
In her weekly radio show, the Vice President supports President Rodrigo Roa Duterte decision regarding Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III to stay at the helm, despite the resolution signed by 14 senators calling for the resignation of Duque.

"Karapatan naman ng mga senador na magpahayag ng kanilang saloobin sa paraan ng resolusyon pero alalahanin natin na ano ba ang nature ng isang Cabinet secretary? Alter ego ng President," Robredo said. "Whether may resolution siya o wala, nasa desisyon talaga ng Pangulo kung tatanggalin siya o hindi."

[Translation: Senators have the right to express what they feel through that resolution but we have to remember what is the nature of a Cabinet secretary. He serves as the alter ego of the President. Whether there is a resolution or none, it is the President who will decide whether to remove him or not.]
"Hindi naman bawal magtuligsa pero sana iyong away, yun sana ang iwasan natin kasi nasa gyera tayo, magkakampi tayo dito lahat," she said.
[Translation: It's not wrong to criticize, but let us refrain from fighting because we are in the middle of a war. We should all be allies here.]
