On Wednesday, March 21, President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo shared the same stage at the graduation exercises of the Philippine National Police Academy’s Maragtas Class of 2018 in Silang, Cavite.

The two of the country's top leaders shared the same stage for the third time this week. 

It was last Sunday at the Philippine Military Academy's commencement exercises in Baguio City  when President Duterte and Vice President Robredo first shared the same stage this week. The second was on Tuesday at the 121st founding anniversary celebration of the Philippine Army in Taguig City.

“This is the third time I greeted you, my lady,” the President told VP Robredo.

“Sana po may graduation pang iba para magkita pa rin tayo”, Pres. Duterte added.

During the 121st founding anniversary celebration of the Philippine Army, the President apologized at the beginning of his speech for being late at the event. This is because according to him, he slept late after a 13-hour long meeting with his Cabinet officials yesterday that started at around 2 p.m.

After the country's Commander-in-chief apologized, President Rodrigo Duterte threw a joke to Vice President Leni Robredo.

Speaking to the Vice President, who was one of the high-profile guests at the Philippine Army anniversary celebration in Taguig City, Pres. Duterte told Robredo, “Natapos ho kami Ma’am ng three, ang pinag-usapan namin ikaw”.

On their meeting last Sunday at the Philippine Military Academy graduation, Duterte told Robredo that they are friends.

It can be recalled that the Vice President herself was once part of the Duterte Cabinet where she served as the housing czar under Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC). She later resigned from her post in December 2016 after some disagreements with the policy of the President.

Currently, VP Robredo is in the midst of battling an election protest filed against her by the former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
