House restores VP Leni Robredo to succession line

Jess Diaz (The Philippine Star) - October 11, 2018 - 12:00am


Image



MANILA, Philippines — The House of Representatives last night restored Vice President Leni Robredo to the line of succession to the presidency during the transition to the envisioned federal system.

Robredo’s reinclusion came in the form of an amendment presented by Majority Leader Rolando Andaya Jr. to the draft federal constitution the House is considering.

The chamber, at the request of Cebu City Rep. Raul del Mar, returned the draft to the committee on constitutional amendments so it could introduce “perfecting amendments.”

Robredo described as “very desperate” the move to exclude her from the presidential line of succession being pushed by allies of President Duterte.

In a speech at the 5th provincial congress of the Negros Occidental Small Fishers Alliance yesterday, Robredo said her critics are thinking of everything to remove her from her post.

She cited the filing of an impeachment complaint and an electoral case before the Supreme Court.

“Now, they are trying to insert it in the proposed Charter change,” she said, noting many House members are not aware of such provision.

Leyte Rep. Vicente Veloso, committee chairman, said Robredo was excluded in the succession line to the presidency during the transition for the sake of “political stability.”

Veloso said the country could be plunged into uncertainty if the Presidential Electoral Tribunal voided Robredo’s victory in the 2016 vice presidential election and declared former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. as the real winner.

He said Robredo’s exclusion was the idea of the ruling PDP-Laban, although he claimed he could not remember the proponent.

His committee’s decision to take out the Vice President in the succession line has received numerous criticisms.

Robredo laughed off Veloso’s claims and reminded him that she defeated Marcos by more than 200,000 votes.

She said Veloso, who is also facing an election protest, led by less than 100 votes against his opponent.

During election, Robredo said many winning candidates are charged by their opponents who cannot accept the result of the voting.

She said the mandate of the Vice President is to succeed the President.

“If you remove such mandate, nothing is left for the vice president. Might as well remove the position of the vice president,” she said.

Robredo welcomed Senate President Vicente Sotto’s statement that the Senate would reject the provision in the proposed federal government.

Meanwhile, an official of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is puzzled by the provision that sought to exclude Robredo from the presidential line of succession.

DILG Assistant Secretary and spokesman Jonathan Malaya said it was not clear to them why the Vice President is being eased out from the order of succession when the House seeks to maintain the presidential system.

“The existing term limits must be respected so the people will not question the motives behind the President’s push for a federal system,” Malaya said.

He said the DILG stands by the consultative committee (Concom)’s proposed federal constitution in light of a new draft federal constitution submitted by the House committee on constitutional amendments.

Malaya said there are marked differences between the two drafts and the political and electoral reforms in Concom’s draft are “necessary ingredients” for federalism to succeed.

As such, the DILG endorses Concom’s proposal for a self-executing anti-political dynasty provision in the federal constitution, which will open up and democratize the country’s electoral process.

Malaya said the Concom’s recommendation to adopt a proportional representation as possible replacement to the party-list system should merit serious consideration by the House.

The DILG is hoping that the present Congress can still convene as a constituent assembly to debate on the proposed Concom amendments to the 1987 Constitution.

“We ask both the Senate and the House to fully consider all the features of the draft submitted by the Concom to President Duterte. It’s the product of a non-partisan body with no vested interests,” Malaya said. — With Helen Flores, Cecille Suerte Felipe

Robredo: Democrats’ takeover of House in recent US elections ‘inspiring’

GMA News wrote:
Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday said that the Democrats' taking control of the US House of Representatives in last week's mid-term elections is "inspiring."
"Inspiring saka nagbibigay ng pag-asa sa ating lahat iyong nangyari sa Amerika. Kasi ‘di ba iyong mga kandidato ni President Trump, tumatakbo against the Democrats," Robredo said in an RMN interview.

"Pero iyong mga tao, pinahayag nila iyong kanilang boses, iyong pag-reject sa mga ayaw nilang polisiya, ayaw nilang klaseng leadership. Pinakita nila sa paraan ng pagboto ng mga maaayos na kandidato," she added.
The US midterm elections—seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump, his divisive policies, his inflammatory rhetoric, and the mounting controversies surrounding him—saw the Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives even though some precincts have not yet reported final results.
Robredo expressed satisfaction over the victory of candidates representing various minority sectors in the US.
"Iyong nakakatuwa dito iyong mga... iyong mga nanalo, ang daming representatives ng mga minorities. Mayroong gay, mayroong kababaihan. Pinakamarami yata ito... na mga kababaihan na nakapasok," she noted.
Unity
As the Philippines' own midterm elections draw near, the vice president said the lesson that people may learn from the US poll result is that voices can be heard if there's unity.
During the presentation of the opposition coalition's senatorial bets last month, Robredo also recounted how the people's unity made it possible for her to win the 2016 national election.
?"Marami pong nagsasabi na napakahirap ng laban nila. Pero ako na po mismo siguro 'yung halimbawa. Noong una po akong humarap sa inyo lahat nagsasabi, 'wala 'yang pag-asa.' Pero dahil sa pagkakaisa, naging posible 'yung one percent to vice president," Robredo said. — Dona Magsino/BM,

Robredo denies ‘oust Duterte’ plot

Image

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines — Former Davao City vice mayor Paolo Duterte has been criticized for sharing on social media a list of individuals and groups that are allegedly behind a plot to oust his father President Duterte.

The list included Vice President Leni Robredo and other opposition personalities.

Robredo yesterday denied her involvement in the supposed plot as she laughed at the alleged “Oust Duterte Movement” list, which was posted on Paolo’s Facebook account.

The list – which according to reports included church and former government officials, journalists and militant groups – was no longer available yesterday.

“It says there, that all those in the list have been discussing the ouster of the President... that we are destabilizing his government. I looked at the names in the list and I don’t know most of them, the only one I know is Jollibee,” Robredo said.

Opposition-leaning group Tindig Pilipinas, which was included in the list, called Paolo paranoid for sharing what it dubbed as gossips being peddled as intelligence.

“Your inaccuracies are many. You mentioned one person as a member of the Hyatt 10. He isn’t. Then you mentioned one of our members twice. And then you put together groups who have deep ideological divides that they would not work together,” the group said.

Apart from Robredo, other prominent figures in the list included Catholic prelates like Bishop Julio Xavier Labayen, who died weeks before the 2016 elections.

Robredo was listed as the “leader of the united opposition.”

It also tagged Jollibee Foods Corp. and several other companies as “People’s Organizations/Business Community” involved in the alleged movement.

Robredo said Paolo’s alleged act of spreading of unverified and false information was “irresponsible,” noting he is a former government official.

“It’s very irresponsible to post something which has no basis. I don’t know if he bothered to check where the information came from, because obviously the one who did it didn’t spend time to do research. I hope he is aware that I have not been in these places and that I don’t know the persons in the list,” she said referring to the list.

Leni Robredo: 'I’m the most vilified gov’t official'

Image

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines — After repeated attacks against her from President Duterte himself, Vice President Leni Robredo believes she is the “most vilified” government official in the country.

Robredo made the statement during an open forum at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington yesterday.

The Vice President keynoted the CSIS-Pertamina Banyan Tree Leadership Forum and US-Philippines Strategic Initiative.

“We have been surviving pretty well. I am, I think, the most vilified of all national government officials,” Robredo said when asked about her working relationship with the President.

“But I have not allowed it to affect the work that I’m doing. Most of my days are focused on reaching the farthest peripheries of the country,” she said.

Since October 2016, Robredo’s office has been assisting poor communities in different parts of the country through the Angat Buhay project.

“Despite the political skirmishes, I think it has not affected what I’m doing,” Robredo said.

Duterte has repeatedly belittled Robredo’s capabilities to lead the country, calling her “incompetent” and “weak.”

Robredo, the opposition leader, has also been the subject of criticisms and fake news on social media since she assumed the vice presidency in June 2016.

But despite Duterte’s attacks, Robredo said she continues to look for avenues where “we could be amicable.”

“Even if we don’t share, you know, many values. Even if we don’t agree on many important issues, I still think that it will be to the best interest of the country if we can work together,” she said.

Robredo said her relationship with Duterte “has been civil most of the time.”

“The President would issue statements from time to time that are a little combative. And it has polarized our supporters,” she said.

“But you know, I am well aware that we will still be president and vice president for the next three years, so I keep telling my staff that in spite of the noise, we have to have our eyes on the target, to be mindful of what we want to achieve after six years. To have a laser-light focus on the things we want to do, despite the atmosphere,” she added.

Asked about the upcoming May 2019 elections, Robredo said it would be a “tough” battle for the opposition.

“The President is still very popular and the candidates that he will endorse would have... you know... would benefit from the President’s popularity. But we are hopeful that we will be able to win a number of seats – in the Senate, at least,” she said.

The Liberal Party, which Robredo chairs, is fielding eight candidates for the senatorial race, including reelectionist Sen. Paolo Benigno Aquino IV and former presidential candidate Mar Roxas.

Roxas lost to Duterte in the May 2016 elections.
MCC grants to Philippines

Meanwhile, Robredo is hoping that the Philippines can still avail itself of grants from the US Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) as skyrocketing inflation could worsen poverty in the country.

“I hope the Philippine government will be given the opportunity to pursue once again our application to receive grants from the MCC,” Robredo said at the same forum.

The MCC is an innovative and independent US foreign aid agency that helps lead the fight against global poverty.

Last December, the Philippines withdrew its application for a second aid package from the MCC.

Budget Secretary Benjamin Diokno had said the withdrawal from the application for the grant was for policy independence, although former US president Barack Obama had criticized President Duterte’s war on drugs, souring ties between the US and the Philippines.

The Philippines received its first grant from the MCC from May 2011 to May 2016, amounting to $434 million.

“There has been a lot of talk that the reason why we did not get the second tranche of the MCC was our failure to comply with some of the agreements,” Robredo said.

“It is an opportunity for the US to demand from our government to comply with the basic tenets of democracy: respect for human rights, anti-corruption. I think we should continue to exert effort to be a worthy party of that agreement,” she added, noting that the poor Filipino people are the ones who will benefit from the grant.

“Especially now, inflation is very high in the Philippines, exchange rate is bad at this time. And it will be to the benefit of the country if that will happen very soon,” the Vice President said.

During an open forum, Robredo was also asked about her take on the ongoing talks for a US-Philippines free trade agreement (FTA).

“The Philippines will always benefit from a free trade agreement. In fact, we have been lobbying for it, especially now that the trade deficit is at its largest... It is the responsibility of the government to comply with the requirements of the US,” she said.

The Philippines has recently started negotiations on a free trade agreement with the US.

Annual two-way trade of goods and services between the Philippines and its long-term ally totaled $27 billion in 2016, according to the Office of US Trade Representative.

It would be Washington’s second FTA with a Southeast Asian country after Singapore.
