    VP Leni thankful for ‘show of support’ after winning online poll for next DSWD chief

    Office of the Vice President August 20, 2017

    Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday said she is thankful for the confidence in her leadership that netizens showed in a recent online poll, which saw her as top pick for the next secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

    The Twitter poll was posted by Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), in an apparent bid to ask netizens who they think should replace Judy Taguiwalo as DSWD chief, after the Commission on Appointments (CA) rejected her appointment last week.

    VP Leni overwhelmingly topped the said survey, with final results at 81 percent.

    Asked about this on her weekly radio show, Biserbisyong Leni, at RMN, the Vice President said she was surprised that Uson, a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, had included her among the choices.

    “Unang una, medyo nagulat ako na sinama niya iyong pangalan ko,” she said. “Nagpapasalamat na din tayo kay Asec. Mocha Uson, na pagpapakita siguro na may tiwala na puwede tayong humawag ng ganiyang kabigat na puwesto.”

    VP Leni said she is even more grateful for those who showed their trust by voting for her there.

    “Mas malaki sigurong pagpapasalamat sa mga nagpahayag na ako iyong preference nila, kasi pagpapakita na tinitiwalaan tayo sa ganitong larangan,” she said. “Nabalitaan ko pa lang po iyang noong nakaraang araw, kaya medyo nagulat po tayo, at nagpapasalamat tayo.”

    VP Leni was once a part of the Cabinet, after President Duterte asked her to head the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC)—an offer that came following their separate inauguration.

    Her stint was cut short, however, when she tendered her resignation in December 2016, after she was asked to desist from attending Cabinet meetings. She said such directive would make it “untenable” for her to do her job as HUDCC chief.

    This has given VP Leni more time to focus on her office’s flagship program, Angat Buhay, which aims to reach the smallest, farthest, and poorest communities in the country.

    Conceptualized before she was offered a Cabinet seat, Angat Buhay originally carried five key advocacies, including food security, health, rural development, education, and women empowerment.

    After VP Leni’s resignation as HUDCC chief, however, the OVP took on housing as the sixth pillar of the program.
