MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, the standard-bearer of Aksyon Demokratiko, calls Vice President Leni Robredo to make the “ultimate sacrifice” and withdraw from the presidential election.
Moreno claimed in a joint press conference that Robredo only ran for the country’s highest post to prevent the Marcoses from returning to Malacañang.
“Kung meron mang supreme sacrifice, ‘yung number 2 should do and start initiating the supreme sacrifice. Let Leni withdraw. Withdraw, Leni, if you love your country. Kasi sila ang laban lang naman nila, laban lang kay Marcos,” Moreno said.
“Whatever you’re doing is not effective against Marcos. Withdraw, come and join us,” he added.
Moreno offered his services in order for people to have “peace of mind,” stating that the conflict between the “red” and “yellow” factions must end. The Marcoses have been associated with red, while the Liberal Party and the rest of the opposition have been associated with yellow.
Meanwhile, Robredo’s spokesperson, Barry Gutierrez, stated in a statement that “it has been the privilege of every candidate to continue to the end, same as it is a candidate’s option to disregard surveys, rally attendance, endorsements, or any other conventional measure of support.”
He added that they wished the best for every candidate who pushes through to the end of their campaign.
According to the latest Pulse Asia voter preference survey, Marcos is the most preferred presidential contender for the 2022 elections. He is followed by Robredo. – WhatALife!
