The incoming Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines, Vice President-elect Leni Robredo will be sworn in at the Quezon City Reception House, formerly called the Boracay Mansion, where she will hold office as the second highest elected officials of the country. The VP-elect Leni Robredo will also use said mansion as her official residence in Manila while serving as Vice President.
Vice President Robredo will hold a simple inauguration starting at 9:00 AM of June 30, according to the announcement revealed by her camp on Thursday. The Chief of Staff of Rep. Leni Robredo released the following statement:
“Minabuti nating sundan ang ginawa ni President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, na nagpasyang gawin ang kaniyang inagurasyon sa Malacañang, kung saan siya mag-o-opisina. Kaya gagawin natin ang inaugural sa Quezon City Reception House, na siyang magiging opisyal na opisina ng ating pangalawang pangulo,” said Boyet Dy.
Robredo’s camp added further that there will be a short program after the inauguration which will be simple according to her camp. VP Robredo will be sworn in by two Barangay Captains namely, Rolanda Coner of Punta Tarawal, the “smallest, farthest, and poorest” barangay in the third district of Camarines Sur, and Regina Celeste San Miguel of Barangay Mariana, where the QC Reception House is located.
According to the camp of the incoming Vice President, they assured the Filipino public that the ceremonies will likewise be “simple,” taking cue from that of Pres. Rody Duterte. They noted also that only around 300 guests are expected in Robredo’s inauguration at the Boracay Mansion. The Vice President will make sure that representatives from sectors she worked with as a lawyer be present at the event.
During the said inauguration, Dy also noted that there will be free seating which is also part of the message that the Vice President wanted to let the Filipino know the kind of Vice President Leni Robredo is, serving those who are poor or on Robredo’s term “laylayan.”
