QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Leni Robredo proudly announced on her Facebook page that Congress has approved the 2020 budget of the Office of the Vice President (OVP).
In her message, Robredo said she was happy to note that some lawmakers even wanted to increase OVP’s budget.
The Adobo Chronicles was able to obtain the unedited version of Robredo’s message which she herself wrote:
Here’s the final version posted on Facebook after it was edited by her propaganda staff.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – They’ve tried almost everything to solve the nagging traffic problem on EDSA: coding, yellow lanes, banning single occupancy vehicles. They’re even trying to ban provincial buses along the entire stretch of the thoroughfare. To no avail.
Now, the technocratcs at the Manila Metropolitan Development Authority (MMDA) — with full backing from Senator Grace Poe — will start implementing a new, exclusive plan to decongest EDSA, and all it takes is to reroute city buses.
Under the plan, which takes effect next Monday, city buses headed towards Quezon City from Makati, will make a detour away from EDSA and into one of Metro Manila’s exclusive, gated subdivisions, the Corinthian Gardens (located next to the People Power monument on EDSA).
Poe told The Adobo Chronicles that the new plan proves her `point that no emergency powers are needed to solve EDSA’s traffic problem, just some common sense planning.
Corinthian Subdivision homeowners are planning to sue MMDA in order to stop the planned detour which they said infringes on their Constitutional right to peace and privacy.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Although the filing for certificates of candidacy for the 2022 elections is years away, the Commision on Elections (COMELEC) has proactively barred Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Grace Poe from running for President. (Neither has confirmed nor denied about her presidential ambition.)
COMELEC’s en banc ruling is based on Article VII, Section 2, of the 1987 Philippine Constitution which states that only males are qualified to run for President.
The poll body told The Adobo Chronicles that the only way it can reverse its ruling is for a Constitutional Convention to amend the said provision in the fundamental law of the land.
