Liberals rally behind party leader Leni in sedition case

THE Liberal Democrats in the House of Representatives stand solidly behind Vice President Leni Robredo.

This is the statement released by the Liberal party in support of Robredo, who was charged with inciting sedition  over the controversial “Bikoy” vi-deo.

Robredo is the chairperson of the LP, which currently has 18 members in the 18th Congress in the House of Representatives.

According to the LP, the charge is purely harassment against the Vice President.

“The consensus among our ranks is clear: The attacks and harassment against the Vice President is a red line for every member of the Party. Malinaw at unanimous ang paniniwala namin dito,” the opposition group said.

“The Vice President is our leader; the allegations are fictitious; this was initiated by a few misguided sycophants who would rather destabilize the republic than work to uplift the lives of our people,” the statement added.

The LP members vowed to continue to uphold the values and principles of the party despite being a minority in the House of Representatives and will work for the people.
