Robredo ready to run for president in 2022

Vice President Leni Robredo revealed that she is open to run for presidency in 2022.

Robredo, however, admitted that being in the opposition means tougher challenges ahead. In the 2019 midterm elections, none of the opposition bets from ‘Otso Direcho’ made it to the Senate.

“I’m leaving everything open. We still have three years before the next presidential elections. A lot can still happen, and I’ve always said that the presidency is a destiny. There are so many politicians who have sought the presidency and have prepared for it for many years,” Robredo said.

Robredo said that being ready for the presidency was something she prepared herself for because that’s the role of the vice president should anything happen to a sitting President.

“When I ran for the vice presidency, that was one of the prerequisites—that I’m ready to be President. Because the mandate of the Philippine Vice President is to take over if anything happens to the President. So I would not have ran for the vice presidency if I thought that I was not ready for the presidency,” she added.

The Vice President is also confident that she will finish her term despite ongoing electoral protest filed by losing Vice Presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos.

Robredo said that she tried working it out with the administration but some officials of the Duterte administration considers her as a threat.

“The President requested for a separate inauguration. The President asked me to be a member of the Cabinet, and I tried very hard to work well with him as Housing Secretary. But you know, I could not help but be critical of policies which I think were not good for the country. And his stance on the drug war was one of them,” Robredo said.

For now, Robredo said that she will focus on her office’s anti-poverty program.
