Robredo to meet with opposition LP politikos next
For what it’s worth, Vice President Leni Robredo will be meeting with the Liberal Party (LP) members in the House opposition bloc next week.
This was bared Friday (April 21) by Ifugao lone district Rep. Teddy Baguilat Jr., the default leader of the opposition congressmen.
“Sila sila pa nag-usap, kami naman next week,” Baguilat said.
By “sila,” the lawmaker meant the LP members in the pro-President Rodrigo Duterte Majority bloc.
On Thursday (April 20), 15 LP-Majority members headed by Deputy Speaker Miro Quimbo met with Robredo, who sits as the “yellow party’s” interim chairman.
Quimbo said that a consensus was reached in the meeting to not support the moves to impeach Duterte. The group also reiterated their backing of Robredo, who could also face impeachment.
There is already a duly-filed impeachment complaint against Duterte courtesy of Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano, who like Baguilat is an opposition politiko.
Last month, another LP politiko in the opposition, Albay 1st district Rep. Edcel Lagman, belied Quimbo’s claim that the LP congressmen won’t be supporting the impeachment against Duterte, saying the party members haven’t been consulted yet. #
