President-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s continuous snobbing of Vice President-elect Leni Robredo has no effect towards her standing in her own political party – as she is about to be crowned as queen in the Liberal Party hierarchy.
Outgoing President Benigno Aquino III himself said that Vice President-elect Leni Robredo will take a senior post in the Liberal Party since she got the highest elected official post under its banner.
Aquino explained what Robredo’s role in the political organization as per her preferences – as they are still yet to discuss about the said matter. Since Duterte vowed to topple the Liberal Party in the highest government post and vice versa, it is a legitimate reason why the President is uncomfortable with Robredo perceived as his political enemy number one inside his administration.
