Leni Robredo Petitions Supreme Court For Compromise On Vice Presidency

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Leni Robredo has proposed to the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunl (PET), a compromise that would finally resolve the Vice Presidential protest filed by former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

In an urgent petition filed with PET, Robredo said she was willing to split the Vice Presidency with Marcos. (Earlier, Marcos again asked the  High Court to proceed with his motion to nullify votes in 3 Mindanao provinces where he alleges widespread cheating happened.)

Robredo proposed that she be declared Vice President for Luzon (except the Ilocos Region) and Marcos be declared Vice President for Mindanao.  As far as the Visayas is concerned, she suggsted a toss coin between her and Marcos  to determine who will be declared VP.

In speaking with The Adobo Chronicles, Robredo’s spokesperson said the VP’s proposal is similar to the set up at many government and private sector companies where they have separate Vice Presidents for Finance, Operations, Human Resources, etc.

The Marcos camp has not yet commented on Robredo’s proposal.
