The relations between the president and Leni Robredo are constantly changing. Du30 at first suspects that she was among those plotting his ouster from office. He now says that he believes Robredo is not involved in any plan to dismiss him from office and even appeal to critics to stop any impeachment moves against her. They are scheduled for dinner after the Holy Week.

[VIDEO]: 24 Oras: Net Satisfaction Rating ni Vice President Leni Robredo, bumaba base sa bagong survey ng SWS
More Filipinos ar Dissatisfied with Robredo
More Filipinos are dissatisfied with Robredo’s performance as shown in the nationwide poll results released recently. Private pollster Social Weather Stations or SWS said that her net satisfaction rating among public officials declined for a second consecutive quarter. It drops by 11 percent to a “moderate” +26 in the first three months of this year compared to a “good” +37 last December 2016.
Critical of the Drug War
Her downfall is actually self-imposed. She videotaped her criticisms on the country’s war on drugs. Her pronouncements angered supporters of the president that contain unfounded details. Since Du30 remains popular despite the impeachment complaint filed against him, Robredo’s action displeased most people – the reason for the decline in her rating. The president’s net satisfaction rating as of March 2017 is at +63 or “very good.”
House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, who threatened to fast-track an impeachment complaint against Robredo right after the holidays despite the president’s disagreement, saw his net satisfaction rating increase by two percentage points to +12. This means that any legal action against the Vice President is duly approved by many Filipinos.
One more big issue that proves the majority of Filipinos’ hatred towards Robredo is the recount call via Social Media. This will soon be protested at the Supreme Court on April 17, 2017 -that coincides with Bongbong Marcos’ deadline for the payment of the deposit recount to finally set the electoral protest in motion.
