President’s Hall Sala, Malacañan Palace
12 July 2016
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte administered the oath of Vice President Leni Robredo as chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC). The simple ceremony was held at Malacañan Palace.
Present during the oath-taking were Robredo’s daughters — Jessica Marie, Janine Patricia, and Jillian Therese.
After the ceremony, President Duterte had a photo opportunity with the Vice President and her three daughters.
The post was offered to Vice President Robredo through a phone call from the Chief Executive last July 7, 2016. She immediately accepted the post on the same day and vowed through her statement that she will maximize her position as the HUDCC chair to improve the lives of her underprivileged countrymen.
