Only one constitutional heir to the President’s post, says Hilbay

Sharing is caring!

President Duterte recently announced that there he has only two choices whom he wants to take his post once he steps down from office, former senator Bongbong Marcos and Sen. Chiz Escudero.

But as far as former solicitor general Florin Hilbay is concerned, there’s only one who could rightfully “take the throne”–at least as it written in our Constitution.

“Pres Duterte is the Pres by operation of the Consti. VP Robredo is the Vice Pres by operation of the Consti. If the Pres resigns, the VP becomes the Pres by operation of the Consti. The constitutional task of a VP is precisely to wait for the possibility of a succession,” Hilbay said in a tweet.
