Opposition leader? Robredo recently applied for Cabinet post – Roque
That was practically what Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Wednesday said as he sneered at Vice President Leni Robredo’s decision to take on a new role as leader of the opposition movement.
Roque pointed out that just few months ago, Robredo was practically “applying” anew in the Cabinet of the Duterte administration.
“Good luck po, at sana po ay malinaw na ang papel ni Leni Robredo dahil nitong kailan lamang po eh parang nag-a-apply muli siya sa Gabinete ni Presidente,” he said.
“So, ngayon at least mayroon na siyang desisyon na sa oposisyon na siya at hindi na siya umaasa na makapasok muli dito sa Gabinete ng ating Pangulo,” Roque said.
The Palace official was referring to the statements made by the Vice President in a TV interview saying that she’s still willing to sit in the Cabinet but insists that she will have exercise her right to dissent.
