MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Duterte is open to firing Leni Robredo again if the Vice President is given and accepts a third appointment as member of the administration.
This was revealed by Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo, weeks after Robredo was fired as Co-chair of the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-illegal Drugs (ICAD). It was Robredo’s second appointment, the first being Cabinet member in charge of Housing and Urban Development.
”It’s a love-hate relationship that the President has with Robredo,” Panelo said. “Love is lovelier the third time around, but there is also the possibility that the VP will be fired three times in a row.”
Panelo didn’t say what Cabinet or other position Duterte might appoint Robredo to.
