Senator Richard Gordon has a message to all cabinet members who opposes the views of President Rodrigo Duterte, resign from your post! As the only clear opposition in the cabinet, Gordon hits Vice President Leni Robredo for putting a strong stance against Duterte’s decision to support the burial of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos
Read his full statement here:
“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,” Gordon said in a radio interview Sunday, November 20.
“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,” he added
“I’ve been fighting this all my life yung partido natin wala eh, nanalo si Duterte. Ang daming liberal nung araw nung manalo na si Duterte lahat lumipat. ganyan naman na nung araw pa, lipatan nang lipatan.” “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.
