    VP Leni calls for background checks for all public servants

    VP Leni calls for background checks for all public servants

    Vice President Leni Robredo said she does not oppose a background check for all public servants because this is part of ensuring transparency in government.

    “Dapat talaga ginagawa ang background check, hindi lamang sa mga aspirants pero lahat na public officials. Kasi ang public office is a public trust,” Robredo said at the “Panata Sa Bayan: The KBP Presidential Forum” on Friday, February 4.

    She made the statement in response to a question posed by panelist Elmar Acol. The veteran journalist wanted to know Robredo's take on President Rodrigo Duterte's recent statement that he will divulge the names of presidential candidates involved in corruption. Duterte had said the Philippine National Police (PNP) is already investigating presidential aspirants and doing background checks.

    “Kailangan talagang… palagi kaming chine-check. Parating may audit kung merong kurapsyon na nangyayari. Kasi pag [may pag-expose sa] kurapsyon na nangyayari, hindi naman 'yung kalaban namin 'yung makikinabang doon kundi buong taumbayan,” Robredo said. “Kailangan magkaroon ng sistema at mekanismo para nao-audit 'yung aming mga ginagawa may eleksyon man o wala, lalong lalo na pag may eleksyon.”

    Robredo, whose Office of The Vice President (OVP) has scored the highest audit rating in the last three years, stressed how crucial it is for voters to know the accusations lobbied against candidates.

    “Pag may eleksyon kailangan talagang maisiwalat ano ba talaga ang mga accusations laban sa kanya… meron ba siyang convictions? Ano ba 'yung mga kanyang pinagdaanan, ano ba 'yung kanyang record? Kasi dapat bahagi ito ng pagkilatis sa kanya ng taumbayan na boboto sa kanya,” Robredo said.

    The KBP presidential forum was attended by four other candidates: Senator Ping Lacson, Senator Manny Pacquiao, Mayor Isko Moreno, and Leody de Guzman. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. was a no-show, citing a conflict in his schedule.

    The forum was broadcast live over 300 TV networks and radio stations nationwide, with additional global livestreaming services over the internet. [End]
