Dionne Monsanto happy to see Filipinos abroad supporting VP Leni Robredo’s bid for the presidency

They told Monsanto that despite being outside the country, they will vote in next year’s national elections

Former actress Dionne Monsanto was surprised at how many supporters Vice President Leni Robredo has abroad.

In a tweet, she shared her recent experience at a “Filipino event.” Knowing that most OFWs are pro-administration and “magnanakaw apologists,” she became a little nervous when people came up to her to bring up her tweets.

However, those people were actually Robredo supporters.

They told Monsanto that they would vote in next year’s national elections despite being outside the country. Monsanto had nothing but praise for them.

Filipinos abroad voting for Robredo will be huge for the presidential aspirant. Robredo recently laid out an eight-point pandemic response and recovery plan called Kalayaan sa COVID plan.

She said if elected, “sufficient” wages and benefits for health workers will be a priority. Small to medium enterprises would also receive a stimulus package of  P100 billion.

In addition, the budget of the Department of Agriculture will be doubled.
