STATEMENT OF SUPPORT OF THE SILENT MAJORITY – CEBU (TSM-CEBU) TO HER EXCELLENCY,
MADAM VICE PRESIDENT MARIA LEONOR “LENI” GERONA ROBREDO
April 2, 2017
We, the 1,700+ strong members of The Silent Majority – Cebu (TSM-Cebu), hereby reiterates our strong support and steadfast commitment to the protection of the legal mandate given by the Filipino people upon Madam Leni Robredo as the duly elected Vice-President of the Philippines.
The devious plot to unseat her as Vice-President, hatched by the sinister and insecure minds of some people in the highest echelons of power, must be meet with the fullest resistance as befitting the Filipino people, the same race in the Orient which had resisted foreign domination for centuries and had overthrown a tyrant in their midst. Removing Madam Leni as VP will undermine Philippine democracy, permanently damage our electoral system, and give rise to another dictator in the country. These all freedom-loving Filipinos should not allow.
Madam Leni is of the people, having spent more than a decade of her life crafting solutions to provide legal services to the most marginalized sectors of Philippine society. As congressperson, she had advocated pro-people bills. As Vice-President, she continues to be the enlightened voice for the people in an increasingly anti-people, anti-Filipino administration.
In these days of fake news and faker policies, Madam Leni’s brand of public service is a beacon of hope that someday, “public service is a public trust” will not just be a phrase of words which could be read from the fundamental law, but a vivid reality lived by each and every Filipino public servant.
