Leni Robredo’s pronouncements are contradicting each other – by saying that she is confident to finish her term as VP but appealed to the Supreme Court at the same time. She wants Bongbong Marcos’ motion for the dismissal of her counter protest to be scraped out from SC records.

[VIDEO]: Leni Robredo said that despite Marcos’ electoral protest and impeachment complaint against her, she will still finish her term as Vice President – but she again made an appeal to the Supreme Court.
Leni Robredo asks the Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal to remove from its records the plea of former senator Bongbong Marcos against her counter-protest. Robredo’s lawyers Romulo Macalintal and Bernadette Sardillo said that the arguments of Marcos’ lawyer George Garcia are misleading.
Not Sure if can Accept Donations
It is not certain if Robredo is just playing safe when she said that many want to help her complete her P7 M balance to the deposit of her counter protest but she’s not sure what is allowed by the law. This is quite unbelievable with two expert election lawyers tailing her – and to think that she is a lawyer herself. It is clear, however, that public servants cannot accept favors from any person or party while still in office.
Trust the Process for Democracy
She keeps on saying also that people must trust the process because it is the foundation of the country’s democracy. If she is true to her words, she won’t keep on questioning Marcos’ moves in retaliation to their actions and let the SC decide on the verdict to come up with the immediate verdict on the electoral protest.
Such comments of the VP really create public confusion. Is she telling the truth that there’s nothing to be feared about getting impeached according to the merits? Has she convinced herself already that Marcos will not win the protest because she did not know about the Liberal Party’s cheating activities for her favor? Well, Pastor Boy Saycon who has the affidavits of some substantial witnesses does not think so.
