MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said that he’d pick any or all of the outstanding government personnel to replace Leni Robredo as Vice President. He made the remark before a group of government workers recognized for outstanding government service. He said it on the same day the Supreme Court (SC) announced the completion of a report on the result of the pilot recount in the vice presidential poll protest.
But in speaking with The Adobo Chronicles today, Duterte added that he’d even pick actor Coco Martin over Robredo.
Martin stars in the popular, long-running teleserye, “Ang Probinsiyano.”
”At least, we know Coco will be a champion in fighting corruption, just like in his role as a cop on the TV show,” Duterte said.
The President is known for his penchant for appointing members and ex-members of the military and police.
