Actress and TV host Kris Aquino will represent the presidential family at the inauguration of Vice President-elect Leni Robredo ‪on June 30.

The camp of Robredo on Monday said the Aquino sisters had been invited but they had to skip Robredo’s inauguration to prioritize the turnover rites President Benigno Aquino III will attend on the same day.


“[The] Aquino sisters were invited and Kris Aquino [will] represent the family,” read the statement from Robredo’s spokesperson Georgina Hernandez sent to the media on Tuesday.

Robredo’s “short and simple” inauguration will be held at the Quezon City Reception House, the new office of the Vice President, in New Manila from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. She will then attend a thanksgiving party with her supporters at 5:00 p.m.

Kris was also Robredo’s top contributor, donating P31.8 million to the former Camarines Sur lawmaker’s campaign for vice presidency.

Robredo’s camp also said that it has invited her running mate, defeated presidential candidate Mar Roxas and his family to attend the ceremony.
