Vice President Position of Leni Robredo to Be Eliminated. Here's Why!

As the transition of the government from a unitary to a federal form under president Rodrigo Duterte, many are wondering if vice president-elect Leni Robredo will have a position under him. Duterte's administration is forming the transition by 2022.

The incoming speaker of the House of Representatives revealed that the transition of the government would potentially eliminate the vice president position, though a discussion will ultimately tell if the position is removed completely. Davao del Norte representative Pantaleon Alvarez told reporters "In a parliamentary set-up, walang VP."He also added "Depende yan kung ano mapagkasunduan, if it's a Con-Con (constitutional convention) or Con-Ass (constitutional assembly), kung ano ang mapagkasunduan dun (form of government)". Right now, vice president-elect Leni Robredo's role under Duterte is unclear as no offer has yet for Leni to receive, unlike past presidents."

The future holds the answer if vice president-elect Leni Robredo will assume a position under president Rodrigo Duterte. Feel free to let us know your thoughts, ideas and opinions by leaving your comments below!
