ROBREDO TO DUTERTE: Stop politicking at the expense of fight vs. coronavirus pandemic

Robredo calls for a “timeout” on politicking

Public officials should not engage in politics, as the Covid-19 pandemic requires an “all-hands-on-deck approach”

WHO IS POLITICKING?

Roque says while the President has acknowledged the Vice President’s initiatives in the fight against coronavirus, Robredo has made it a weekly media habit to nitpick the Executive’s Covid-19 response. It has become noticeable that her criticisms have become incessant and non-stop as the country approaches an election season. This is simply politicking

Malacañang on Wednesday chided Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo over her supposed attempts to politicize the Duterte government’s coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) response efforts as the election season draws near.

In a press statement, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque expressed dismay that Robredo is launching “incessant and non-stop” tirades against President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“While the President has acknowledged the Vice President’s initiatives in the fight against coronavirus, Mrs. Robredo has made it a weekly media habit to nitpick the Executive’s Covid-19 response. It has become noticeable that her criticisms have become incessant and non-stop as the country approaches an election season. This is simply politicking,” Roque said in the statement.
