MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – For the third time in four years, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is appointing Vice President Leni Robredo to head a Cabinet-level Commission which he created through a new Executive Order.
Robredo had been previously appointed as Housing and Drug Czar but neither of those worked out.
Duterte believes in third chances, so he has again tapped Robredo to head the new Professional Regla Commission that will oversee the rights and privileges of Filipino citizens who have reached the age of menopause (regla).
In issuing the Executive Order, Duterte said it is about time that the government address discrimination faced by menopaused women in employment, education and social services. “Robredo’s passion and experience in the area of menopause are perfect for the position. She fully understands the trials and tribulations experienced by Filipino women in their somethings,” Duterte said.
Congratulations to the Vice President!
