Not a decor: Harry Roque claims Duterte tried to give Robredo role in admin
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque refuted Vice President Leni Robredo’s claim that she was never given a chance to participate in the administration. The abogado alleged that she chose to leave the Cabinet to head the opposition.

Roque emphasized that the President did not lack in giving her a role. The abogado also stated that it was her own doing that she became a “decoration” during her term.
VP Spokesperson Barry Gutierrez has since slammed this statement by uploading a screenshot of the text sent to Robredo. It showed that she was asked to stop attending Cabinet meetings by the President.
Whoops, sabunutan na ‘to!
