Robredo won’t attend Cabinet meetings unless invited: Baka sabihin istorbo ako!
Vice President Leni Robredo will wait for an invitation from Malacañang before attending a Cabinet meeting, she said Saturday (November 9).
Robredo, who has been appointed as co-chairperson of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD), said she doesn’t want to gatecrash a Cabinet meeting even if Palace officials have said her position is that of a Cabinet Secretary.
“Kapag inimbitahan ako, pupunta ako, pero without the invitation, hindi ako pupunta, kasi kung naaalala naman natin noong 2016, ayaw akong pa-attend-in, so baka maging istorbo pa ako doon,” she said at the sidelines of her attendance to the Indo-Pacific Federation Conference of the Theosophical Society.
Robredo resigned as chair of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) in December 2016 after she was disinvited from Cabinet meetings.
President Rodrigo Duterte had said he didn’t want Robredo at the Cabinet meeting because of her alleged participation in rallies against him.
Robredo denied plotting to oust Duterte.
