NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo plans to sue Vice President-elect Inday Sara Duterte for sedition!
Speaking from New York City where she is attending daughter Jillian’s graduation, Robredo made the revelation after Duterte said she plans to do her oath-taking in Davao City on June 19, 11 days before the incumbent’s term ends.
“This is tantamount to inciting people to rebel against the duly-constituted government,” Robredo said. ”I am the VP until June 30,” she added.
No comment from the Duterte camp as of press time.
DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau). – Here’s one for the Guinness Book of World Records: the Philippines will have two vice presidents, albeit only for eleven days!
Presumptive Vice President Inday Sara Duterte announced that she plans to have her oath-taking on June 19, eleven days before that of Presumptive President Bongbong Marcos. (Under the Constitution, the President-elect — and by extension — the Vice President-elect shall take the oath of office at around noon on June 30, 2022.)
2016 was a weird exemption when Leni Robredo had a separate inauguration as VP from that of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Inday Sara’s announcement sent waves of disappointment to many of the 31 million who voted for the Marcos-Duterte tandem, dashing their hopes to personally witness the historic oath-taking of the17th President and his VP on the same day and stage.
So, technically, Duterte’s oath-taking will not yet formally install her as Vice President since the term of the incumbent, Robredo, doesn’t end till June 30.
For eleven days, the Filipinos will have two vice presidents — a world record indeed!
DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – Presumptive Vice President Inday Sara Duterte announced that she will take her oath of office 11 days early, in Davao City.

(The presidential inauguration is set for noon on June 30, 2022, as stated in the 1987 Philippine Constitution.)
