MANILA, Philippines- Nasa maayos umanong kalagayan si Vice President Leni Robredo matapos ang national elections, ayon sa kanyang tagapagsalita nitong Martes.
Pumangalawa si Robredo sa presidential race, na nakakuha ng 15,035,773 boto o kalahati ng bilang ng boto na natanggap ni Pesident-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos.
“She’s good. To begin with even before the election results came in, she was already in a good place. She was at peace, she was ready to accept what outcome might happen,” ayon sa kanyang tagapagsalita na si Atty. Barry Gutierrez.
“Then after she was able to attend her daughter’s graduation in New York, I think it was a much-needed reward for her. We’ve been working nonstop for the last 6 years,” paglalahad pa niya.
Nang tanungin kung magbibigay si Robredo ng formal concession, sinabi ni Gutierrez na “she definitely attempt to address that in the remaining 30 days.”
“I think everything that needs to be said has been said. She has been very clear from the start. That’s something that can still happen but it’s up to her,” patuloy niya.
“We waited for 6 years on our end and that was never given to us in the aftermath of the 2016 election. The VP is someone who has been always very gracious to people she has met through her office.”
Magiging “more than happy” naman umano si Robredo na makipagkita kay Vice President-elect Sara Duterte-Carpio upang talakayin sa kanya ang mga programa ng OVP, base kay Gutierrez.
Binati ng Vice President ang kanyangsuccessor sa isang sulat kung saan sinabi niya na makikipag-ugnayan ang kanyang opisina sa grupo ni Duterte para sa maayos na transisyon.
“Obviously if VP-elect Sara Duterte would want to meet with VP Leni that would be easy to arrange and I’m sure she will be very happy to have that meeting,” ani Gutierrez.
“We will offer definitely to brief them on the entire scope of activities conducted by OVP over the last 6 years, including all flagship programs, COVID initiatives, it’s up to the team of incoming VP…whether she would want to continue many of these programs,” dagdag pa niya.
“The main difference is she will be running an executive department. A VP that runs an executive department generally focuses their work on that department.” RNT/SA
Ang TV host na si Toni Gonzaga na nga ang kakanta ng Philippine National Anthem sa inauguration ng President-elect Bongbong Marcos as the 17th president of the Philippines on June 30 sa National Museum.
Sabi pa sa report, si Chris Villonco naman ang kakanta ng inauguration song na “Pilipinas Kong Mahal” kasama ang Young Voices of the Philippines Choir.
Ayon pa kay Franz Imperial, member ng preparation committee, ang magaganap na inauguration ay solemn and simple.
“The program we have prepared is very solemn and simple. It would be very traditional dahil sabi nga ni BBM sa vlog niya, ‘hindi kami lilihis pa sa tradisyon,” sabi ni Fritz.

Manila, Philippines – Just a day after Rita Daniella announced that she is pregnant, bumuhos ang tanong sa social media, “Sino ang ama?”
A lot of RitKen fans were hoping that it was Ken Chan who impregnated Rita pero aside from the latter denying it and telling people that it is a non-showbiz personality ay huminto na rin ang pag-asa ng fans.
Sa kabila ng mga hinala at tanong, nagbigay ng mensahe si Ken kay Rita sa pamamagitan ng isang tweet.
“To you and your baby, I’m here if you need anything, as someone you can always rely on. I pray to God for the utmost positivity, protection, support, and love to surround you and your baby.
“As a friend, as someone who cares, I’ll be here for you no matter what. I am so proud of you,” saad ni Ken sa kanyang tweet kasama ang photo ni Rita wearing a white dress, holding her baby bump.
Tinawag mang friend ni Ken si Rita, marami pa rin ang kinilig lalo’t bibihira ang ganitong uri ng friendship.
Naihalintulad pa nga ang dalawa sa relasyon nina Eric Santos at Angeline Quinto sa isa’t-isa.
For sure, like other celebrities, she is just waiting for the perfect time to introduce the father of her baby to the public.
MANILA, Philippines- Kinondena ng Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) Philippines ang mandatoryong pisikal na resporting ng mga guro sa paaralan kahit na tapos na ang official school year calendar, at tinawag itong “new form of forced labor.”
Pinuna ng ACT Philippines nitong Martes ang Department of Education (DepEd) matapos makatanggap ng mga ulat mula sa educators sa buong bansa na patuloy pa rin silang pinapapasok sa mga paaralan kahit na tapos na ang school year calendar ng DepEd.
“DepEd is using its questionable Memorandum 43 series of 2022, issued last May 10 to justify this new form of forced labor. This memo essentially extended work for teachers for them to report to school,” ani ACT Philippines chairperson Vladimer Quetua.
Habang 197 sa 209 class days ang nagamit sa school year dahil sa deklarasyon ng 12-day health break, naniniwala ang mga guro na sapat na ito upang maabot ang kanilang learning at teaching objectives.
“If DepEd insists that there is exigency of service, there should be an order approved by the division that teachers are required to report and there should be additional compensation or service credit for them,” giit ni Quetua.
Batay sa kalendaryo ng DepEd, Hunyo 24 ang huling araw ng school year 2021-2022. RNT/SA
