VP Leni: ‘The truth will always trump lies’

April 18, 2022

With three weeks left before the May 9 elections, presidential candidate Vice President Leni Robredo rallied her supporters to carry on despite the bruising campaign, thanking them for standing by her and her running mate, Senator Kiko Pangilinan, and for fighting for the country.

“Nagpapasalamat ako sa inyo, na kahit mahirap ang panahon, nandito kayo, tumataya. At sigurado ako tumataya kayo hindi lang para sa amin ni Senator Kiko, pero [tumataya] kayo para sa ating minamahal na bayan,” Robredo said on Monday, April 18, at the Marinduque People’s Rally at the Boac Sports Arena.

“Kaya sana po, huwag kayong mapanghinaan ng loob,” she added.

During the People’s Rally, Marinduqueños performed the “Putong”, a traditional song and dance presentation meant to bless the guests of honor —Robredo and Pangilinan.

The crowd also showed Robredo placards declaring their unwavering support.

One said: “It is such an honor to see the next President of the Philippines.”

To which Robredo replied: “Dapat ang Presidente, laging nakikita, di ba? Ako ‘yung mapapangako ko sa inyo, ako ‘yung Presidente na lagi niyong makakasama. Ako ‘yung Presidente na pareho niyo lang, hindi problema ang malapitan.”

The crowd cheered.  

As the campaign reaches the homestretch, Robredo reminded her supporters to give it all they’ve got, but to do so with heart and to keep calm.

“‘Yung mga kapamilya na hindi pa kumbinsido, kailangan nating kumbinsihin. Pero ‘yung pagkukumbinse, sa mahinahon na pakiusap,” Robredo said. “Dapat malakas ‘yung loob natin dahil ang dala-dala natin, katotohanan lang. At ang katotohanan, parati siyang mangingibabaw kumpara sa kasinungalingan,” she added. [End]
