Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay has challenged President Duterte to simply resign after he offered to give his law enforcement powers to Vice President Leni Robredo for six months.
“Why not just surrender the presidency by resigning? Subukan natin,” he tweeted.
He was commenting on the President’s declaration to let Robredo use his law enforcement power following her criticisms about the war on drugs. Duterte said he would even tap Robredo as drug czar if she wants.
“Ngayon mas marunong ka man sa akin I’ll hand in to you full powers sa drugs. I’ll give you six months. Tignan natin kung kaya mo,” Duterte told Robredo during a speech in Malacañang Monday.
