Robredo to Malacanang: OVP is helping solve lapses in COVID-19 response




Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo answered the recent tirade of Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque when the latter said “"looking at the glass half-empty, and focusing on the shortcomings just to score political brownie points at the expense of the administration."
She reminded Malacanang to be open from constructive criticisms, following accusations that her comments are “finger pointing” and that she is engaging to early politicking about the shortcomings of the current administration regarding its COVID-19 response.

"Kapag masyado tayong sensitive sa puna, kawawa naman yung taong bayan. Ang panahon ngayon, hindi pwedeng patuloy na nagkakamali," Robredo said in her weekly radio show Biserbisyong Leni.

[Translation: If we are too sensitive about criticisms, it is the people who will suffer. Nowadays, we can't afford to commit lapses.]
She added: "Sana makinig naman. Sana wag masyadong maging balat-sibuyas. Yung datos 'di galing sa akin, yung datos galing sa grupo, galing sa eksperto na mag-analisa ng datos."
[Translation: Please listen. Please don't be onion-skinned. The data did not come from me, the data came from groups, experts who analyze information.]

Robredo acknowledged that she was "really looking at a glass half-empty" but pointed out that the Office of the Vice President has been "trying to fill it up, because at a time of crisis, we cannot afford not to fill up the glass."
