Manila, Philippines – Vice President and Liberal Party (LP) Chairman Leni Robredo, said that Senator Kiko Pangilinan has freed any responsibility of Otso Diretso’s senatorial slate loss in the midterm election even if he was the LP campaign manager.

Robredo said in an interview last Saturday, June 8, the opposition prepared an unbeatable campaign so the candidates’ loss should not be blamed on Pangilinan and the Liberal Party’s secretary general, Quezon City Rep. Kit Belmonte.

“[F]rom the very start naman we were fully aware of how… ‘di ba? Parang seemingly insurmountable iyong… iyong ano…pero sinubukan pa din,” she said during an interview in a film festival in Quezon City.

Pangilinan and Belmonte offered their resignation as party officials after the election results. However, Robredo did not accept the said resignation and she interpreted the gesture as a “very noble way of accepting responsibility.”

“Hindi nila kasalanan. Puwedeng maraming pagkukulang, pero hindi siya kasalanan noong dalawa,” Robredo said, as backed up even by the members of LP’s national council and disagree with Pangilinan and Belmonte’s resignation.

As previously reported by KAMI, Pangilinan announced that he already handed over his resignation to Robredo. He said that he took full responsibility of Otso Diretso’s defeat in the recent mid-term polls.

Francis Pancratius "Kiko" Nepomuceno Pangilinan, Born on August 24, 1963, served in the Senate from 2004 to 2008. He ran again in 2016 and became the president of the Liberal Party.
