Sen. Gordon Advice to VP Robredo: Resign If You Won't Side with Pres. Duterte's Principles


One of the country's most prominent senator and Chairman of the Philippine Red Cross shares an unsolicited advice to Vice President Leni Robredo and those who were against the principles of Pres. Duterte on his decision to let the Supreme Court decide the Marcos burial to resign from their office if they are against Pres. Duterte's principles.


The senator who garnered the fifth highest number of votes with more than 16 million voters during the 2016 senatorial election urged the Cabinet members who doesn't agree with Pres. Rody Duterte to resign from their post.

In a radio interview Sen. Dick Gordon stated those who are against the hero's burial for the late Pres. Marcos should resign from their respective post if their conscience isn't on the same side as Pres. Duterte.

The Senator was quoted as saying "Kung ikaw ay cabinet member you have to side with the President kung hindi mo na kaya na mag-side sa Pangulo at ng prinsipyo mo, you resign," Sen. Gordon said in a radio interview on Sunday, November 20, 2016.

Sen. Dick Gordon added further that "Yun ang mangyayari kasi you are the President, cabinet kasama kayo, kapag ikaw ay kokontra at hindi na kayo magka-igihan ng president you resign or the president fires you," the senator said.


Although Sen. Gordon did not name the particular Cabinet members, most netizens agreed that the senator was referring to Vice President Leni Robredo, the housing czar from the Liberal Party and one of the critics of Pres. Duterte's decision to allow the Marcos burial.

Sen. Gordon also added that "Yung panawagan na mag resign that is a call to conscience kung may conscience sila, yun talagang position nila they must follow their conscience but I’m not going to force them because maari sa kanila strategically it is a good alliance for them, di ba.

“Kung talagang hindi nila ma take yun they should resign. Kung mate-take nila they should stay,” he said.
