And although VP Robredo did not reveal the possible topics to be discussed, she said that it will include LP’s plans after she resigned from the Duterte cabinet. However, the vice president reiterated that she has no ambition to become president, and that there is no plan to oust President Duterte from office, despite their “irreconcilable differences.”

“Because he (President Duterte) has the mandate, it is our obligation to support him. However, it is also our obligation to call his attention on policies that we think are wrong,” Robredo noted, who was recently assured by the president to finish her 6-year term despite the pending electoral protest by former senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos.
