The Palace has spoken after Vice President Leni Robredo aired her thoughts regarding the country’s COVID-19 response.
KAMI learned that the Palace also dared Robredo to come up with solutions in fighting the pandemic.
In a report by ABS-CBN News (authored by Arianne Merez), Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that Robredo could be the new president if she can come up with a solution while there is still no vaccine and cure for COVID-19.
"Hinahamon ko po si VP Leni, kung mayroon siyang solusyon na walang vaccine at wala pa rin gamot, sabihin niya po dahil sigurado po baka ngayon din maging presidente siya kung makahanap siya ng solusyon habang walang bakuna at walang gamot," Roque said.
“Habang wala talagang bakuna, habang walang gamot, wala pa rin po talagang solusyon sa pandemyang ito," he added.
In a tweet by Philippine Star, Roque said that the Vice President and the opposition continue to disregard the COVID-19 efforts of the government.
“Wala daw po tayong ginagawa. Well, sila lang ata ang hindi nakakaalam kung anong ginagawa ng gobyerno,” Roque shared.
As reported by Inquirer (authored by Darryl John Esguerra), the Palace also urged the opposition and Robredo to open their eyes and ears to the efforts made by the admin.
Born on April 23, 1965, Leni Robredo is the second woman who was elected as the Vice President of the Philippines. She is known to be the widow of Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo.
Earlier, President Rodrigo Duterte slammed the COVID-19 remark of Robredo. She responded to the tirades of the President and the “pesticide” issue.
Meanwhile, former opposition Senator Sonny Trillanes dared the Palace to appoint VP Robredo as the head of the COVID-19 task force.
