Duterte does not want joint inauguration with Robredo–VP’s camp
The camp of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has informed Vice President-elect Leni Robredo that he wants to hold his inauguration separately on June 30.
“We were informed by the team of President-elect Rody Duterte about their preference to hold the inauguration separately,” Boyet Dy, head of Robredo’s transition team, said in a statement on Wednesday.
“While we have been preparing for a joint inauguration, we respect their decision and will begin our own preparations for a simple and modest ceremony,” he said.
Dy said Robredo wishes to be sworn in by the chairperson of the “smallest, farthest and poorest” barangay in Camarines Sur, her home province.
“The ceremony will be conducted in Metro Manila, where Vice President-elect Leni Robredo wishes to be sworn in by Capt. Ronaldo D. Coner of Brgy. Punta Tarawal, Calabanga, the smallest, farthest and poorest barangay in Camarines Sur,” he said.
