Yesterday (03 June 2016), Vice President-elect Leni Robredo reminded our incoming President Rodrigo Duterte to have more “circumspection” in his public pronouncements as the media provoked in his provocative remarks on journalists' murders and behavior towards women.

“It is a testament to the power and prestige of the presidency that each statement and each action of our leader is taken as an indicator of official policy,” said Robredo in a careful worded statement.

“Hence the need for constant vigilance and circumspection, to avoid raising any unnecessary concern, particularly over issues as sensitive as the murder of journalists and the treatment of women in our society,” she added.

The widow of former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, however, was careful to frame her remarks, repeatedly expressing her support for the Duterte administration.

“I have always taken the position that we should give our full support to our newly elected President. When we help him to succeed, we are helping our nation—and ourselves—succeed,” she said.


Her support, according to Robredo, “includes providing, with the other members of his team, other perspectives on various issues to broaden his view, and afford him the breadth of vision that is so essential to the leader of our nation.”

“The Philippines has played a leading role in the promotion of human rights and the advancement of gender equality. I trust our country’s leaders will continue to uphold this honorable legacy in every word and deed,” Robredo noted the Philippines’ positive record in pushing for gender equality and expressed hope that the new government would continue in this direction.

“I continue to be reassured by the President-elect’s repeated assertions that he will uphold the rule of law, as well as by his strong record of promoting women’s rights during his service as Davao City mayor,” she added

“I hope that these commitments will be more clearly reflected in his public pronouncements,” Robredo said. 

Robredo reassured the public that she will be countinuing as the strong voice of advancement of human rights.

  1. Madame Leni,it would have been acceptable to us if part of your reactions is also to tell the journalists that they have to be careful with their actions and words, that they should also show utmost respect to President Duterte, to undertand how he talks and reacts first,and not to twist the truth about what he intends to convey in his pronouncements. If you yourself would only listen and not just hear then things would have been different. Then you will not always be as obliged by your party to react on their behalf.

  2. Hoi Leni, you have no right to say those words to the President who wins via a landslide votes while you win via cheating. You have no mandate from the people but from the oligarchs. Pweee...m
