After the pronouncements of Vice President Leni Robredo on the slow relief effort in the areas affected by Typhoon Nina on Tuesday, Palace released their official statement on the vice president's remarks.
From the Office of the Presidential Spokesperson on VP Leni Robredo’s statement that relief operations in Typhoon Nina-hit areas 'slow'
The remark Ms. Robredo made saying that the relief operations were "slow" suggests a cynical political mindset willing to capitalize on disaster. One wished she displayed more appreciation of the work of our disaster officials, our social workers, and other volunteers who were on Ground Zero even before Nina made a landfall.

The Department of Energy Philippines (DOE) with support from local government units and private institutions, on one hand, has brought back electricity to priority areas in Bicol and Southern Tagalog regions before New Year. For transmission facilities in the on-grid area, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), after deploying 500 technical personnel, reported that as of December 31, the Naga-Daraga 230 kV line and the Naga-Pili-Iriga line have been restored servicing the provinces of Albay, Sorsogon and Camarines Sur. Full restoration of NGCP transmission services in typhoon Nina-affected areas is expected today.

Krizette Chu slams Robredo on 'slow relief' remarks: I would be so fucking mad that this bakasyonista had the temerity to criticize for the sake of politicking
Duterte supporter and writer Krizette Laureta Chu lambasted Leni Robredo on the vice president's denunciations.
"Di pa rin ako maka move on na after her romp in NYC, Leni calls the relief efforts "slow." If I were one of the hundreds of relief workers there working over the holidays, spending time with the victims instead of with my fam over Noche Buena, I would be so fucking mad that this bakasyonista had the temerity to criticize for the sake of politicking," said the well-known writer.
She added, "Apart from her inaction over Leyte, this is the only time I am truly, deeply furious over Leni. Mapapatawad ko pa ang hindi nya pag move ng bakasyon, pero yung manglait ka pa na wala ka na ngang ginawa... DI PA RIN AKO MAKA MOVE ON SA KATAKLESAHAN AT KAWALANG RESPETO."
