VP Leni Robredo Finally Gets a Cabinet Position under Pres. Duterte’s Administration

After all the misunderstanding and rivalry in the recent 2016 National Elections, President Rodrigo Duterte, finally appoint his Vice president Leni Robredo as the new chairperson of Housing and Urban Develop-ment Coordinating Council (HUDCC).

For the past three administration, the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council, has been given to the last three Vice president elect of the country.

Former Vice President Noli De Castro was appointed as HUDCC Chair under the Arroyo Administration, VP elect Jejomar Binay was also appointed as HUDDC chair under the Aquino Administration and now VP elect leni Robredo under the Duterte’s administration.

It is remembered that during the searching of people that will built or form the cabinet of the president, the president insist that he will not give any cabinet position on the new VP elect,

Because of the legitimacy and alleged cheating on the VP race? And also the president doesn’t want to hurt his friend Bongbong Marcos, who many people think that is the real Vice president of the country?

Meanwhile, VP elect Leni Robredo, says she will continue her responsibility as vice president of the country with or without any position in Duterte’s administration.

On June 30, 2016, history has been made as the president and vice president take their oath in different location. A sign that the two don’t want to work each other?

But after several days the vp Robredo visit president Duterte in the palace after having a meeting with the president, it seems that the president had a sudden change of mind about giving his vice president a position?

On July 7, 2016, President Duterte formally give VP Robredo as the new HUDCC chairperson and immediately ask to investigate the housing anomaly in housing program of Typhoon Yolanda victims.

The Vice president is scheduled today to attend her first cabinet meeting with the president and other cabinet members in Malacañang.
