Robredo on Duterte’s possible VP run: “Sana hindi niya pagdaanan ang pinagdaanan ko.”
Vice President Leni Robredo gave a reaction to the possible VP run of President Rodrigo Duterte.
In an interview during her office’s vaccine express program, Robredo was wishing the best for Duterte if he decides to run for VP.
“Kung halimbawa tumakbo siya, manalo siya, ang wish ko lang sa kanya sana hindi niya pagdaanan ang pinagdaanan ko habang VP ako,” she said.
On Saturday, Duterte announced that he will run for vice president in the upcoming elections.
During PDP-Laban’s national assembly at Royce Hotel and Casino at Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga, the incumbent president said that he is aware of the lawsuits his critics plan to file once he ends his 6-year term.
“They keep on threatening me with lawsuits and everything. (Former Senator Antonio) Trillanes and itong si (former Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio) Carpio and his ilk. Panay ang takot sa akin na mademanda ako,” he said.
“Sabi ng batas, kung presidente ka, bise presidente ka, may immunity ka. Eh di tatakbo na lang ako na bise presidente. And after that, tatakbo uli ako na bise presidente, at bise presidente, at bise presidente,” he added.
But according to legal experts as per the article of ABS-CBN News, the position as vice president does not make a person immune from a lawsuit “by law or by tradition.”
