Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Vice-President Leni Robredo listed down her accomplishments in the five months she has served as the Chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC).
These include the cutting of red tape, providing low-cost housing for at least 46,000 families, and the start of construction of at least 17,000 homes for victims of super typhoon Yolanda.
This data was released by her office on Monday, the same day she tendered her resignation as HUDCC Chairperson.
Robredo said on Monday that she worked diligently in the short time she served as Housing Secretary.
"Sayang because we have really worked very hard in the past five months. Ang daming problema ng housing na sana hindi na mabiktima yung mga tao sa iringan ng pulitika,"she said.
[Translation: It's regrettable because we have really worked very hard in the past five months. There are so many problems in the housing sector, and I wish the people would not be made victims of political squabbling.]
Robredo quit her post on Sunday after she received a text message from Cabinet Secretary Jun Evasco Jr., relaying the President Rodrigo Duterte's instruction — through Special Assistant Bong Go — for her to "to desist from attending all Cabinet meetings starting December 5."
