Still no role for Leni

MANILA, Philippines - President-elect Rodrigo Duterte insisted yesterday there is no compelling reason to appoint vice president-elect Leni Robredo to the Cabinet. 

"Leni must understand that she belongs to the opposite side," Duterte said.

When asked what would be Robredo's role in his administration, he replied: "We're still studying the script of the movie."

Duterte revealed that he offered a post to defeated vice presidential candidate and outgoing Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. 

"I know Bongbong Marcos and I don't want to hurt him," he said, adding that the senator did not ask for a position.
