According to Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, why would Vice President Leni Robredo be invited in the New Year's vin d'honneur for foreign diplomats knowing that they have many disagreements of President Rodrigo Duterte.

"Ang sa amin lang naman dito, prerogative ng Pangulo. It's his house. Homeowner. Kung hindi mo naman kasundo ang in-invite, why would you invite? Sabi ko nga sa interview, awkward. Awkward di ba?" Andanar told reporters in Malacañang. 

Andanar also revealed in a separate radio interview that Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea joked that Robredo was not invited because she would have her own vin d'honneur next year.

"Mayroon ngang biru-biruan, nag-usap kami ni Executive Secretary Medialdea, sabi ko, 'Hindi ba in-invite si Vice President?' Tapos sabi niya, sabi ni ES, 'Eh magkakaroon siya ng sarili niyang vin d’honneur next year,'" he said and then laughed. 

On the other hand, Andanar said Malacañang is not snubbing Robredo and refused to speculate if she would no longer be welcome to attend presidential events. 

"If the President decides to invite the Vice President in the future, it is his call," he said.
