The Liberal Party (LP) on Saturday (March 18) slammed allies of President Rodrigo Duterte for spreading what it described as “baseless, orchestrated lies” in opposition to Vice President Leni Robredo.
LP president Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan mentioned there appears to be an concerted effort to discrdit Robredo following the discharge of the so-called “NagaLeaks” expose and claims linking her to destabilization plots in opposition to the President.
Pangilinan famous that a minimum of Duterte has cleared Robredo’s title in any strikes to oust him.
“Makinig sana ang mga ka-alyado ni Pangulo sa kanya at huwag nang maghasik ng kasinungalingan dahil hinahawahan nila ang buong bayan imbes na pinagbubuklod tayo,” Pangilinan mentioned.
“Ganito rin ang ginawa nila kay Leila: sinisiraan ng mga paratang na walang basehan sa katotohanan,” he mentioned, referring to the President’s critic Sen. Leila De Lima, who’s now detained over alleged drug charges.
Key allies of the President have been attacking Robredo following her video message to the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, by which she talked in regards to the victims of the administration’s brutal marketing campaign in opposition to unlawful medicine.
House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has threatened Robredo with impeachment for criticizing the federal government’s battle on medicine within the video, saying she might have dedicated betrayal of public belief.
The Speaker additionally accused Robredo of being behind the primary impeachment criticism filed in opposition to Duterte by Magdalo partylist Rep. Gary Alejano even when the lawmaker has denied the Vice President was concerned within the case.
Contrary to their claims, Pangilinan mentioned it’s Duterte’s allies who’re creating political uncertainty with their pronouncements.
“They should stop destabilizing the administration and focus instead on the gargantuan tasks of delivering on its campaign promises such as end ‘endo’ and create jobs, finish the traffic nightmare and ease commuters’ lives, and stop corruption and move the country forward, among others,” the LP president mentioned.
