Vice President Leni Robredo called the impeachment cases filed against her and President Rodrigo Duterte as nuisances, and it distract the government from doing its job.
This is Robredo’s response amid President Duterte’s plea to stop any plan of impeachment case against his Vice President.
According to Robredo, while she did not personally hear Duterte’s statement, she believes that it was done for the good of the country.
The Vice President believes that there is too much division in the country, and it will not help the Philippines in the future. She insists that Congress have to discuss more pressing issues, that are greater than an impeachment case against her and the President.
Magdalo Partylist Representative Gary Alejano has already filed an impeachment complaint against Pres. Duterte. House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, meanwhile, plans to file a similar case against the VP Robredo.
Attorney Oliver Lozano, and politician Melchor Chavez have already drafted their impeachment complaints against Robredo, but await endorsement from House Speaker Alvarez to make it official.
