Hindi na daw siya peke na VP

Pinagmalaki ni FVP Leni Robredo na natanggap na raw ng mga kritiko niya na totoo siyang VP at hindi peke katulad sa mga sinasabi ng marami nitong nakaraang apat at kalahati na taon. Tuwang-tuwang ang lokaret. Akala niya binura ng hashtag #NasaanAngBisePresidente ang dayaan na naging daan upang ma-proklama ito bilang Pangalawang Pangulo ng Pilipinas.

The reality is that she is the incumbent Vice President of the Republic. Nothing can change that except a ruling from the Presidential Electoral Tribunal now headed by dilawan Justice Marvic Leonen as justice in charge. Kahit anong sigaw ng buong bansa na peke siya na Vice President, wala tayong magagawa dahil sa mata ng batas, siya ang Pangalawang Pangulo.

This demonstrates how shallow the mind of this woman is. She twisted the meaning of the hashtag to massage her ego and make it appear there is no more obstacle to her being VP. But that hardly changes anything. As far as majority of Filipinos are concerned, she did not win the elections in a legitimate manner. Nanalo nga siya, pero sa pandaraya. This is the reason why her legitimacy will always be shrouded by a dark cloud of doubt.

It is basic in political law that all powers of the state are derived from the sovereign Filipino people. This is the essence of democracy. Ilang beses na rin napatunayan na pag ayaw ng taong bayan sa isang lider, maari silang sumigaw ng sabay-sabay upang mapa-alis ito sa puwesto. And even if such leaders remain steadfast in their position of power, they become inutile leaders because the sovereign Filipino people have withdrawn their support.

With just one year and a half left in her term, Leni Robredo might just remain glued to her position until the end. The truth will never be known because the PET didn’t fulfill its mandate of determining the outcome arising from the electoral protest filed by former Senator Bongbong Marcos. By October next year, when BBM files his COC for whatever position, the protest will have been rendered moot and academic.

But one thing is certain: Filipinos will never consider Robredo their rightful and genuine Vice President. And she will go down in history as one of the most hated politicians who occupied high office. She will continue to be fake, and no law can force the people to change their minds on that point.
