Vice President Leni Robredo has submitted her resignation letter as Housing Secretary from the Cabinet of President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, December 5, 2016.
Below is the full text and transcript of VP Leni Robredo’s letter of resignation addressed to President Rodrigo Duterte.
Dear Mr. President,
I accepted the appointment as Chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) given our shared commitment to the poor and marginalized.
I have exerted all effort to put aside our differences, maintain a professional working relationship, and work effectively despite the constraints because the Filipino people deserve no less.
However, your directive for me to “desist from attending all Cabinet meetings” has effectively made it impossible for me to do my job. Remaining in your Cabinet has become untenable.
With due respect, I am tendering my resignation as HUDCC Chairperson effective immediately.
Maria Leonor G. Robredo
