Grand Philippine Auction On eBay

image.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – What happens when the president-elect does not want to live in the presidential palace and the vice president-elect does not want to live in the VP palace?  Then you open a grand auction on eBay.

The newly-proclaimed top leaders of the Philippines, President-elect Rod Duterte and VP-elect Leni Robredo both loathe the ostentatious life of elected officials, paid for by taxpayer money.  During the Duterte-Robredo administration, there will be no lavish official residences, no presidential yatcht, no limousines, no presidential choppers.

These are all currently for sale on eBay:

Malacañang Palace (presidential palace) in Manila

Mansion House (presidential summer residence) in Baguio

Coconut Palace (vice presidential official residence) in Manila

Presidential Yacht

Presidential Choppers

Presidential and Vice Presidential limousines

But those are not all. The incoming administration is also selling:

Senate Building in Pasay City

House of Representatives Building in Quezon City

City Hall in Makati City

The live auction ends at noon on June 30, 2016, the day of the presidential inauguration.
