Vice President Leni Robredo shocked everyone as she announced that she is to resign from being a cabinet member. She explained in a statement that her projects are being blocked by the administration, stating these reasons:
"One, the budget for all key shelter agencies in 2017 has been slashed by more than P19 billion. Two, all our key shelter agency appointment recommendations have not been acted on. Three, the Executive Order designed to make HUDCC effective was not signed."
However, it was the text message of Cabinet Secretary Jun Evasco, Jr. which compelled her to resign as it says: "Good afternoon Madam Vice President. Mayor Rody Duterte thru Bong Go asked me to relay to you his instruction for you to desist from attending all Cabinet mtngs starting This Monday Dec 5, 2 pm. Ty,"
Barry Gutierrez, Liberal Party spokesperson, was the one who showed the text to the media. With this, Vice President Leni Robredo said:
"This is the last straw, because it makes it impossible for me to perform my duties. Hence, I am tendering my resignation from the Cabinet on Monday, December 5, 2016."
The vice president is quick to clarify that she will not be giving up her post:
"However, as your duly elected Vice President, I will not allow the Vice Presidency to be stolen. I will not allow the will of the people to be thwarted. I will continue to serve the Filipino family and fulfill their dream for a better life."
