Fake news! Ted Te belies claim that Robredo is omitted from succession
Atty. Theodore Te immediately verified claims about the proposed Federalism constitution. The abogado was concerned about leadership succession as rumors about President Rodrigo Duterte’s deteriorating health continues to surface.
The Fact Sheet provided by the HoR for RBH 15 (Proposed Federal Const.) does not mention that A.XVII, s.4 RBH 15 omits the incumbent VP in line of succession should the incumbent President die or be incapacitated. The transitory provisions were the first ones I looked for.

Te noted that he checked and Vice President Leni Robredo is still in the running for the succession plan. The abogado noted that he verified with the House of Representatives’ Fact Sheet specifically Article XVII section 4.
The abogado said that he is sure of this because he checked the transitory provisions. He wrote that it is the first thing he inspected upon receiving the copy of the document.
