Perhaps a sudden change of plan happened when it was reported earlier that the Aquino sisters will be accompanying Pnoy when he turns over the presidency to President-elect Duterte during his inauguration on the same day s Robredo’s.
Inquirer reported: Actress and TV host Kris Aquino will represent the presidential family at the inauguration of Vice President-elect Leni Robredo on June 30. The camp of Robredo on Monday said the Aquino sisters had been invited but they had to skip Robredo’s inauguration to prioritize the turnover rites President Benigno Aquino III will attend on the same day. “The Aquino sisters were invited and Kris Aquino will represent the family,” read the statement from Robredo’s spokesperson Georgina Hernandez sent to the media on Tuesday.
Political as it may seem, it is good that the Aquino family opted for the right thing to do. Leni Robredo won’t be the Vice President-elect under such controversies if not because of them and the Liberal Party in general.
