The ex-lawyer of President Ferdinand Marcos, Oliver Lozano filed an impeachment complaint against Leni Robredo for her criticism of the administration’s deadly war on drugs. The complaint for violation of the constitution and betrayal of public trust was submitted by Oliver Lozano to the office of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez for sponsorship. Lozano said that said Bongbong Marcos would not benefit from it.

Immediate Successor is the 3rd Highest Official of the Land

Under the law in the Philippine constitution, it is the third highest official that shall immediately succeed when the vice presidency is left vacant.  In this case, it is the Senate President Koko Pimentel who directly benefit once Robredo is impeached and not Bongbong Marcos. Next in line to Pimentel is House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.




Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest Win is Crucial

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II clarified that Bongbong Marcos can take the VP post once Robredo is removed from her post. But he has to win the electoral protest first. It is noted that the said process takes years to facilitate but since many cannot stand Robredo anymore, it is not so important who would replace her in the VP post for as long as they can get rid of her.



VP Successor can also be Appointed

The president can appoint a VP replacement from members of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The appointee assumes office once the majority vote from both Houses of the Congress approves the appointment. The Commission on Appointments then scrutinizes the VP candidate for confirmation. This is based on Article VII Section 9 of the 1987 Constitution.

Ground for Impeachment

Robredo allegedly betrayed the people by shaming the nation with her dishonest message to the side event in the United Nations forum. “The respondent is duty bound to act within the framework of the Constitution but her acts of dishonesty and moral bankruptcy breached the bounds of the Fundamental Law,” Lozano said. In the video, Robredo exaggerated the killings linked to the drug war and also revealed a so-called “palit-ulo” scheme with the wrong description.
