Rigoberto Tiglao: Duterte should remove Leni of Cabinet position, give it to Marcos instead

Former politician now prominent journalist Rigoberto Tiglao voiced out that President Rodrigo  Duterte should have Vice President Leni Robredo removed of her cabinet position.

Robredo now chairs the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council.

The Vice President recently criticized the burial of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, a move orchestrated by Duterte.

“I can’t understand why Duterte keeps Robredo in his Cabinet when she keeps on criticizing him, openly disagreeing with his policies (like the Marcos burial).” he wrote.

“She can’t be removed of course as VP (except through impeachment), but Duterte can remove her from the posts he appointed her to. Para asarin siya, let Marcos jr. replace her.” he added.

Tiglao said if Robredo can’t accept the major policy of the President, then she should “immediately resign”.
