Duterte accepts Robredo's cabinet resignation

President Rodrigo Duterte accepted on Monday the resignation of Vice President Leni Robredo as chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC). 

"It is with a heavy heart that I accept the resignation of Vice President Leni Robredo," Duterte said in a statement released by Communications Secretary Martin Andanar. 

Robredo resigned from the HUDCC, explaining to the President that "remaining in your Cabinet has become untenable." 

She said Duterte's directive for her to "desist from attending all Cabinet meetings" has "effectively made it impossible" for her to perform her job.
