    Media Interview with Vice President Leni Robredo

    Media Interview with Vice President Leni Robredo
    North Cotabato Provincial Capitol, Matalam, North Cotabato


    REPORTER: Ma'am, what's your take on the recent Pulse Asia survey po?

    VP LENI: Ano na kasi 'yun eh, one month ago. One month ago na 'yun, marami na nangyari after noon. So, expected naman na wala pang bump kasi kauumpisa pa lang ng official campaign period. Mas inaasahan namin na bump, parang pareho noong 2016 na naramdaman siya towards the end of March hanggang April. So, 'yun 'yung mas ina-await namin. Gaya noong laban ko noong 2016, I started at 2% - 1%, 2%. Naramdaman lang 'yung bump ko in 2016, late March. So, ang expectation namin ganoon pa din until now.

    REPORTER: Ma'am, sa patuloy na pagtaas ng presyo ng produktong petrolyo, lalo na ngayong may bigtime oil price hike, what do you think is the best reasonable state intervention na puwedeng gawin?

    VP LENI: Ang short term kasi, kailangan talaga ayuda eh, 'yun 'yung pinaka-short term. Ginagawa naman natin 'yan even before, kailangan lang mas urgent ngayon na ilabas na kasi, ang tinaas plus 13 'yung diesel, plus 10 'yung kerosene, plus seven 'yung gasolina. Pero kailangan kasi i-expand 'yung base. Meaning to say,, kahit 'yung mga toda, kahit mga delivery drivers, dapat isali na ngayon. Kasi, dahil sa taas ng– dahil sa laki ng itinaas, apektado silang grabe.

    Pero 'yung mas long term kasi noon, kailangan mag-meet 'yung Congress, mag-special session, pag-usapan na kung ano talaga 'yung intervention, isu-suspend ba 'yung excise tax o gagawa ng parang socialized na suspension o pagbawas ng taxes para mas bawas 'yung pakiramdam noong pagtaas.

    'Yung mas long term pa noon, tingin ko It's about time na pag-isipan na service contracting na talaga 'yung mga drivers. Nasuweldo na sila, hindi boundaries system para hindi ganito kaapektado sila ng changes sa gasolina. 'Yung pangalawa, puwedeng pag-usapan na 'yung shift talaga to e-vehicles, e-jeep, e-bus, e-trikes, para hindi na tayo dependent sa gasolina at hindi tayo masyado naaapektuhan pag ganito, lalo na itong Ukraine-Russia na problema. 'Yung effects nito, mas mararamdaman natin in the coming months.

    REPORTER: Do you intend to implement that in your term, ma'am?

    VP LENI: Kung ako, oo. In fact, I have been pushing for that since the start of the pandemic, ‘yung service contracting. 'Yung service contracting saka 'yung shift nga to more climate-friendly vehicles. Kasi, gaya ng Europe, talagang nagko-convert na talaga sila to electric vehicles. Ako, it's about time na seryosohin na natin 'yun kasi, itong mga galawan sa mga presyo sa mundo everytime na merong crisis, apektado lagi eh.

    REPORTER: Ma'am what's your take on President Duterte saying that the next President should have a background sa batas, should be a lawyer and dalawa lang kayo na tumatakbong abogado?

    VP LENI: Sa akin naman nakakatulong naman talaga. Although, hindi siya indispensable, hindi siya indispensable requirement, nakakatulong talaga 'yung kaalaman sa batas. Pero, ano naman 'yun, kahit lahat naman may karapatan na gumawa ng sariling pamantayan kung ano hinahanap nila sa mamumuno sa atin.
