Roque: Robredo, opposition disregarding Palace’s effort vs COVID-19
Open Eyes and Ears
Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque says that the sitting VP Leni Robredo turns a blind eye on all of the current administration’s efforts and achievements to combat COVID-19. It even gets worst when her lawyer butts in to say that they must listen to medical practitioners. That proves to show that Robredo’s camp is an alien to the nation’s situation. They seem to not hear or see the measures taken. This leads Filipinos to think; what if she becomes president?
Duterte will Finish his Term
There are two reasons why the VP on protest won’t be president. In the event of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s incapacity or death to lead the country, she is unfit to assume the post because of the pending electoral protest against her by the favorite bet, Bongbong Marcos. The Supreme court will be under pressure to make a decision in that regard. That would divide the nation regardless of the outcome. In the meantime, Duterte vows to finish his term.
The Senate President and the Speaker of the House
Should the next in line is not qualified yet, the Senate President and the Speaker of the House are next. Allan Peter Cayetano is jointly the Senate President with Lord Velasco. Cayetano claims that he has the supermajority support while Velasco said that he has the number. Note that it’s the President’s son who triggers to stop the term-sharing who is in dispute with Cayetano despite the palace’s being mum about it. One can only analyze the trend.
