Gov. Defensor backs President Duterte in stopping impeachment complaint vs VP Robredo

ILOILO CITY-- Iloilo Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. expressed his support to President Rodrigo Duterte in stopping the impeachment complaint against Vice President Leni Robredo.

"I think for the sake of this country, for the sake of this government and the Filipino people, I think it should be dismissed and be thrown out by Congress," Defensor said.

He said that President Duterte's statement made sense and that he (Duterte) does not want to waste the time of Congress on the impeachment proceeding.

"It will do no good to the country," he further stressed.

To recall, two members of the Volunteers for Good Government filed an impeachment complaint against Robredo for betraying public trust and culpable violation of the Constitution.

The President advised them to "lay off and stop" and "do other things but do not tinker with the structure of the government."
