Robredo clarifies presidential bid still on the table

Vice President Leni Robredo clarified Tuesday that she remains open to running for president in next year’s elections.

“I want to clarify that I am yet to decide on the 2022 elections and I am yet to endorse anybody,” Robredo said.

On Monday, Robredo said she was open to supporting Manila Mayor Isko Moreno for president if he secures the endorsement of the broad coalition against the Duterte administration.

“Yes, if that will be the result of the discussions of the broadest coalition that we can form,” Robredo said in a television interview.

“I am open to anything that will stop this kind of governance already,” she added.

A day after, though, Robredo said she was just emphasizing the need to elect leaders who will come from the administration in next year’s polls.

“The goal is clear for those who believe in humane and good governance and that is to replace the existing system,” the Vice President said.

“We need to be ready to work together and stand united with our goal to attain success,” she added.

Robredo earlier expressed gratitude to the over 200 groups from all over the country pushing for her presidential bid.

“I’m very, very grateful for the trust and support. As I’ve been saying, I don’t take this trust lightly and I continue to give serious thought to this,” Robredo said.

Among the more than 200 groups that expressed support for Robredo are laborers, health care workers, teachers, church workers, youth and artists.
