Vice President Leni Robredo is stepping down as chair of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC).
The decision was announced on Sunday night, with Robredo to tender her resignation on Monday.
“This is the last straw, because it makes it impossible for me to perform my duties. Hence, I am tendering my resignation from the Cabinet on Monday, December 5, 2016. With this resignation, you can expect that I will continue to support the positive initiatives of this administration and oppose those that are inimical to the people’s interest,” Vice President Leni Robredo said.
