Roque on de Lima’s ‘oust Robredo’ claim: ‘Prison hallucination’
Malacañang on Sunday branded as “prison hallucination” the remarks made by detained Senator Leila de Lima accusing President Rodrigo R. Duterte of allegedly being behind a plot to unseat Vice President Leni Robredo and tap former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong Marcos to replace him.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque reminded de Lima that it was not within the President’s power to unseat a Vice President but the Supreme Court’s.
“Prison hallucination. Fate of VP (Vice President) is with SC (Supreme Court) and not the Pres(ident),” Roque said in a text message.
