Philippine Vice President to Head Opposition Coalition against Duterte

MANILA – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo said on Tuesday she would head an opposition coalition against controversial President Rodrigo Duterte.

Robredo said in a press briefing in Manila that she had accepted the request of a number of opposition groups to lead a joint front against Duterte for local and Senate elections in May next year and presidential elections in 2022.

The Senate election would be a test for Duterte’s government as they come exactly in the middle of his mandate.

Robredo, from the Liberal Party, has been a strong critic of Duterte’s policies especially his anti-drug war, and began to mobilize the support of other opposition groups, as well as leaders from her own party, last week.

Robredo said Filipinos would be more confident in opposing the government if they knew they were backed by a strong coalition.

The leader added that the front would also include anti-fascism civil society groups.
