  • Vice presidential frontrunner Leni Robredo has stated that if she wins, she will give her full support to Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte so they can build a greater nation together.

    In a press conference on Tuesday, Robredo said that she has set herself to work with whoever gets elected as the country’s next president.

    “The support I will give Sec. Mar [Roxas] is the same to whoever will win the presidency. Duterte deserves my 100 percent support,” she said.

    “Ang impression ko kay Duterte, mas moving forward siya. I have high hopes,” she added.

    However, Robredo said that the support she can give would always be bound by the rule of law.

    “Ako naman po hindi ako compromising pag dating doon. Ibibigay ko ‘yung buong suporta ko pero ‘yung suporta, hindi nag-eextend sa mga bagay na hindi naaayon sa batas,” she said.

    “I stand my ground na kahit siya ang pangulo, pag mali ‘yung ginagawa hindi naman po ako magtotolerate,” she went on.

    Robredo also called on the public to calm down and wait for the completion of the official tally of votes after the camp of Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr. asked the Commission on Elections to halt the counting process due to “alarming and suspicious” developments.

    Robredo inched her way to the top of the vice presidential race after overtaking Marcos and now leads with 13,951,352 votes. Marcos is still close with 13,719,659 votes.

    These reflect the partial and unofficial results as of today, May 11, 11:45 a.m. with 95.45 percent of the total election returns accounted for.
