VP Leni Robredo states that the opposition only needs to have one Presidential bet

She warned that having several candidates in the elections may not change anything for the situation that the last five years have given FIlipinos.

Vice President Leni Robredo said that if the opposition hopes to defeat President Rodrigo Duterte’s presidential candidate in the 2022 Presidential Elections, there should be only one bet from them.

During a forum with Viewpoint, hosted by Barnaby Lo, Robredo asked “If it’s not me, sino?” She stated that she has thought of the things at stake in the elections and what would happen if they don’t unite.

“That would ensure that the next six years after 2022 medyo pareho pa rin sa kind of governance we’re having now and gusto pa rin ba natin yun? So para sa akin, yung ang considerations,” Robredo told Lo.

“Either ako yung magru-run, somebody else, pero ako I feel so strongly that isa lang.”

She also stated the same thing during a forum with the University of Cambridge‘s Filipino scholars last May 24. She warned that having several candidates in the elections may not change anything for the situation that the last five years have given Filipinos.

“So my sense is that whatever will be good, or whatever will be required to unite the opposition, whether the candidate is myself or some other person … [it’s] a good first step to unite the opposition.”

It then gave better hope for the supporters of the position, knowing that Robredo is interested in running for the elections next year.

A netizen described the vice president as “stronger than ever” with the way she expressed her interest in the Presidential position.

Another agreed with her and said that unity is the key to defeat the “DDS fandom.”

“It’s been a while since I felt hope [to be honest],” a netizen wrote.

Twitter user Charles Manimbo also stated that having more than one candidate is “unproductive.”

Someone also mentioned the previous elections where the votes were allegedly split

Another complimented Robredo’s way of handling challenges thrown at her but she always chose to “see the good” in the situation.

On the other hand, a Twitter user criticized Robredo and accused her of “trying to sound so smart.”
