Despite their political differences, Vice President Leni Robredo expressed on Tuesday her support for President Duterte, saying that she wants his administration to succeed.

“Wala ako ibang hinangad kundi magtagumpay siya. Hindi ko siya sinusuportahan kung sumasangayon ako kahit mali (I don’t have other intention except for him to succeed. I don’t support him if I agree even it’s wrong),” Robredo told UNTV in an episode of Get It Straight.

Robredo emphasized it is everyone’s obligation to call out any public official like the President for their wrongdoings because it is good for the country.

While explaining that being supportive doesn’t mean agreeing all the time, she again denied allegations that she is part of a plot to destabilize the current administration and ultimately oust Duterte.

The Vice President said her opposition to some of Duterte’s policies should not be misinterpreted that she has an ambition of replacing the President.

For his administration to succeed, he should also pay attention to dissenting voices and learn to accept criticism, she said.
