Statement of Sen. Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan, Partido Liberal President, on Vice President Robredo's competence

Two years since she's been elected, Vice President Leni Robredo has focused her attention on helping the poor help themselves.

Without a Cabinet position, she has marshalled partners from the private sector to extend P252-million worth of aid for 155,000 families through her Angat Buhay program.

Vice President Leni has shown her competence through compassionate, empowering, and responsible leadership.

The President's remarks are unfortunate, given that they are untrue, and more so because they digress from the core issues that hound Filipinos every day.

Rice prices increased by 5 pesos a kilo when the President promised to bring it down to 15 pesos. The prices of goods and services have risen by 5.2%, the highest in nine years. And out on the streets, our citizens are subject to kotong, threatened with arrest or harm, while the Chinese poachers who mistreat our fishermen are treated with kid gloves.
