DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao City Bureau) -Protocol dictates that the outgoing Vice President would be invited to the inauguration of the incoming VP. But alas, Leni Robredo declined the invitation to attend Sara Duterte’s inauguration in Davao City today, citing a previous commitment in Naga City,
But a mole in the Office of the Vice President told The Adobo Chronicles that the real reason Robredo declined the invitation was because it would be too embarrassing for her to be seated next to President-elect Bongbong Marcos who defeated her in the elections by a huge margin.
During the campaign, Robredo boasted that she had defeated Marcos several times in the past (2016 VP elections and the electoral protest) and that there would be no reason she would not defeat him again in the race for president.
Good saving face strategy on the part of Leni’s camp!
