Five years overdue: Robredo happy, grateful for VP vindication
Vice President Leni Robredo savored another victory nearly five years after she was proclaimed the winner of the 2016 polls.
“Naniniwala tayo sa katotohanan ng ating pagkahalal, naniwala tayo sa proseso, naniwala tayo sa integridad ng mga mahistrado sa Presidential Electoral Tribunal and we are very happy and grateful that this trust is affirmed,” the politiko said as the Supreme Court unanimously voted to dismiss the entire poll protest of ex-senator Bongbong Marcos.
It’s such a high that she wanted to savor the moment.
“Gusto ko na munang namnamin iyong araw na ito. Almost five years din naming hinintay,” she added. “Siyempre paulit-ulit naming sinasabi, pero iyon talaga iyong totoo.”
She went on to thank the PET for its very decisive ruling, but clarified that her office will continue doing its work and helping Filipinos as more people need it.
As for political plans, she’s mum about it. “Siguro kapag nakabuwelo na tayo sa vaccine, kapag mas settled na lahat, mas may panahon na tayo para tutukan iyong plano. Pero ngayon, mas maayos yata na iyong pang-araw-araw na muna,” Robredo said.
