WINNIE MONSOD: Ano bang nagawa ni Sara Duterte?

Robredo the ‘better choice’ for president 

“I remember only a picture of her assaulting a sheriff who was only trying to do his duty.”

Former Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Winnie Monsod said Vice President Leni Robredo would be the “better candidate” for president in 2022 than Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, who’s consistently leading in pre-election surveys.

In her Sept. 4 column for the Philippine Daily Inquirer, according to the newssite POLITIKO, Monsod called Duterte a “product of dynastic politics” while describing Robredo as a politiko with “clean hands and a clean heart.”

Monsod said she “could not google” information on any project or activity Duterte undertook as mayor.

“I do remember a picture of her assaulting a sheriff who was trying to do his duty,” she said.

In contrast to Duterte, Monsod said Robredo provided legal aid to marginalized individuals before entering politics in 2013. The Office of the Vice President, she added, has always passed the Commission on Audit’s scrutiny “with flying colors.”

In urging voters to choose Robredo in 2022, Monsod said: “Wouldn’t you like to have, finally, a leadership approach that is nurturing, moral, and reconciliatory, after five years of the opposite?”

“You are not a President the Filipino people can respect,’ Gordon said.

Gordon unleashed his blast as the President continued to defend Yang and Lao, former head of the Procurement Services -Department of Budget Management (PS-DBM).

Duterte has been criticizing Gordon as soon as the blue ribbon started its probe into the Covid-19 supply deal that was triggered by an audit report by the Commission on Audit (COA) on the multi-billion-peso coronavirus pandemic response fund. Of late, he has ordered the COA to also conduct an audit on funds given to the Philippine Red Cross, which is chaired by Gordon.

Yang, is said to have bankrolled a company which earned a multi-billion-peso contract, approved by Lao, to supply Covid-19 equipment and supplies awarded to Pharmally Pharmaceutical Corporation in 2020. 

“I am really sorry for you, Mr. President. Ang ipinagtatanggol ’nyo si Lao? May utang na loob kayo dahil sa eleksiyon? You are a cheap politician, Mr. President. Cheap politician, as cheap as they come, Mr. President. I’m sorry,” said Gordon as he presided over the 7th hearing of the blue ribbon committee on the allegedly anomalous supply deal.
