- Vice-president elect Leni Robredo will have her inauguration at the Quezon City Reception House on June 30
- The ceremony will be simple with only 300 invited guests
- Robredo will head to QC Memorial Circle after the inaugural ceremony to attend the gathering of her supporters
Incoming Vice-president Leni Robredo of the Liberal party will be inaugurated on June 30 at her new office, the Quezon City Reception House.
On Thusday, head of Robredo’s transition team Boyet Dy confirmed that Robredo’s oath-taking will take place at the QC Reception House, or the controversial “Boracay Mansion” located in New Manila.
The ceremony will start at 9:30AM according to Dy, and only 300 guests will be invited. This is because only a few can be accommodated at the venue.
Despite the 300 guest limit, Boyet Dy assured that different sectors of society would have a representation, especially those who are on the outskirts of society or simply those in the “laylayan”.
Dy added that the ceremony will be as simple as possible.
The ceremony will start, as usual with the singing of the National Anthem to be led by the Payatas Children’s Choir.
Barangay captain Rolando Coner, who leads the poorest town of Camarines Sur’s Third District will be administer the oath-taking. Joining him is Capt. Regina Celeste San Miguel of Barangay Mariana, Quezon City.
Dy explained, “Sa June 30, bagamat simple lang ang panunumpa ng ating bagong Pangalawang Pangulo, magandang pagkakataon ito para magkaisa ang lahat na ipagdiwang ang tagumpay ng ating demokrasya, at ang simula ng isang bago at makulay na kabanata ng ating kasaysayan.”
(On June 30, while the oath-taking of our Vice President will be simple, it will be a good opportunity to unite in celebrating the triumph of our democracy and the start of a colorful chapter in our country’s history.)
The vice president-elect would then proceed to the Quezon City Memorial Circle to attend the gathering of her supporters.
Earlier, it was explained that Duterte didn’t want to conduct a joint inauguration with Robredo because they wanted to consider the Vice president-elect’s supporters. Christopher Go, a member of the incoming president’s inaugural committee, said that it might be unfair for Robredo to be put in the same imposition of having limited guests.
