Senator Richard Gordon, who earned the fifth highest number of votes with more than 16 million voters during the 2016 senatorial elections urged President Rodrigo Duterte's cabinet members who doesn't agree with the executive chief's ruling to resign from their post.

“Kung ikaw ay cabinet member you have to side with the president kung hindi mo na kaya na mag-side sa pangulo at ng prinsipyo mo, you resign,” Gordon said.

“Yun ang mangyayari kasi you are the President, cabinet kasama kayo, kapag ikaw ay kokontra at hindi na kayo magka-igihan ng president you resign or the president fires you,” he added without naming anybody in particular.

Is Gordon referring to Leni? 

When asked if he was pertaining to Robredo specifically, the senator was rather unresponsive.

Gordon said he have been to politics for so long and he knows how politikos move.

“I’ve been fighting this all my life yung partido natin wala eh, nanalo si Duterte. Ang daming liberal nung araw nung manalo na si Duterte lahat lumipat. ganyan naman na nung araw pa, lipatan nang lipatan.”

“Yung panawagan na mag resign that is a call to conscience kung may conscience sila, yun talagang position nila they must follow their conscience but I’m not going to force them because maari sa kanila strategically it is a good alliance for them, di ba.

“Kung talagang hindi nila ma take yun they should resign. Kung mate-take nila they should stay,” he said.

Robredo 'incompetent'

Vice President Leni Robredo was remarked by the chief executive as "incompetent" and said Duterte would not step down if she would assume his post.

"Kung siya mag-presidente? (If she will become president?) Look, I will not resign because it will make her president. My resignation is addressed to the people para makapili sila ng gusto nila," Duterte told reporters in Clark, Pampanga.

"Siya (she), I don’t think she can ever be ready to govern a country. Reason? Incompetence. She’s not capable of running a country like this, Philippines," said Duterte of Robredo, a lawyer and former Camarines Sur Representative.

On the other hand, Robredo's legal adviser Barry Guttierez said President Duterte should instead focus on the inflation and the killings instead of calling Robredo 'incompetent'.
