A Liberal Party (LP) official has brushed off House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez’s

claim that Vice President Leni Robredo had a direct hand in the effort to impeach President Rodrigo Duterte.

“I think the Speaker was misinformed,” Quezon City 6th district Rep. Jose Christopher “Kit” Belmonte said Friday, March 17.

Belmonte is LP secretary-general while Robredo is the erstwhile ruling party’s interim chairperson.

“Walang kinalaman ang LP at lalo na si VP Leni sa impeachment complaint. Ang mga so-called destab plots ay puro guni-guni lang at gawa-gawang kwento,” he said.

Belmonte is among the 27 LP stalwarts who are part of the vast pro- administration coalition in the House of Representatives (HOR).

The impeachment complaint was filed Thursday by Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano, an opposition politiko.
