Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. finally broke his silence over the resignation of Vice President Leni Robredo from President Duterte's cabinet. According to his camp, Robredo "has shown her true colors".
Marcos' legal spokesperson Vic Rodriguez stated that the resignation was "long overdue" because of her "very obvious adversarial attitude and opposite stance” against Duterte's principles and policies.
However, he noted that it was Robredo's allegation that the position is being stolen from her which caught most of their attention.
"Whether she was fired or she resigned from her post is definitely not the business of former Senator Bongbong Marcos. However, we take strong exception to her statement on not letting the vice presidency to be ‘stolen’ from her and the will of the people to be 'thwarted.
Such pronouncement is the height of hypocrisy," he said.
"Long before the May 2016 elections, we were the first ones to reveal the Liberal Party's 'Plan B' which was to rob Senator Marcos of the vice presidency, install Mrs. Robredo in his stead and eventually work for the ouster of President Duterte. It is obvious that 'Plan B' is now in full swing,"
"She has shown her true colors indeed."he added.
It can be recalled that Robredo won by 263,473 votes during the May elections. Marcos then filed a complaint in Supreme Court accusing Robredo and the Liberal party of cheating.
"It was they who thwarted the will of the Filipino people by depriving them of their real choice for the vice presidency," Rodriguez further stated.
"Her statement on the vice presidency is yet another affront to the Supreme Court as she is undermining the integrity and independence of Presidential Electoral Tribunal by casting doubt this early on, on all its future actions and processes," he added.
