After dropping the chairmanship of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council
of the Philippines (HUDCC) in 2016, Vice President Leni Robredo has been facing a challenge to
fulfill his promise of raising those “on the ground.”
Due to an insufficient P546 million budget to make his projects, the Office of the Vice President (OVP)
is seeking help from some private organizations.
One of Robredo’s greatest achievements is “Angat Buhay Village” for those affected by the Marawi City war.
Aside from the administration’s apparently unremarkable dealings, Robredo also now faces questions about his victory.
Robredo and former Senator Bongbong Marcos are currently pending electoral protest against the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET).
For a political science professor, Robredo’s projects cannot eliminate as “politics”.
“He can not really avoid criticizing because the role of those in the Presidential camps to prevent them from having competition,” explains Maria Ela Atienza, a professor at the University of the Philippines.
Recently, Robredo announces that she’s ready to lead and become an opposition voice so many hope that he will be more resistant to criticism of administrative failures.
