Ex-Speaker JdV: Duterte-Robredo leadership is good for the nation, but counting not yet over

LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, May 10 –Former Speaker of the House Jose De Venecia said that a Duterte-Robredo leadership is “good for the nation.”

“If they work together, and I hope they will, they’ll be able to unite the nation, provided that each one provides the other with sufficient space,” said De Venecia on Tuesday (May 10) noon, as Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Cong. Leni Robredo continue to lead the presidential and vice presidential race.

However, De Venecia, in an interview after the proclamation of his son Christopher as fourth district representative, clarified that he did not wish to make any premature statement because the vote-counting remained and the results were not yet final.

He added, though, “But it’s a good fight between Robredo and Bongbong (Marcos), with Robredo seeming to have a reasonable lead.”

De Venecia also described Robredo as "like a gentle storm that’s beginning to sweep the land with her message of truth and simplicity.”-

The De Venecias' campaigned for the Mar-Leni tandem in the last election. (PNA)
