According to Politiko.com, a text message to House reporters from Alvarez saying: “Considering the situation, I think she is FIRED!”
Robredo herself revealed that President Duterte asked her to "desist" in all Cabinet meetings starting on Monday, December 5.
”Cabinet Secretary Jun Evasco, Jr., relaying the President’s instruction through Bong Go for me ‘to desist from attending all Cabinet meetings starting this Monday, December 5,” Robredo said in her statement.
She said this was the last straw to Duterte’s subtle actions to make her look bad as head of the Cabinet’s housing portfolio.
The three signs that showed Duterte was setting her up for a fall were:
1) The budget for all key shelter agencies in 2017 has been slashed by more than P19 billion.
2) All key shelter agency appointment recommendations have not been acted on.
3) The Executive Order designed to make Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) effective was not signed.
Robredo also said in her statement that there was a plot to steal the vice presidency position from her.
"I had been warned of a plot to steal the Vice Presidency. I have chosen to ignore this and focus on the job at hand. But the events of recent days indicate that this plot is now being set into motion," Robredo said in her statement.
