Robredo: Hindi nandadaya ang mga Ilonggo
Ilonggos do not cheat in elections, according to Vice President Leni Robredo.
Robredo said this during the recent launch of the Ahon Laylayan Koalisyon, an initiative that seeks to boost the influence of basic sectors in local governance and help them push for their own People’s Council, in Iloilo City.
“Nadamay po kayo, nag-file sa akin ng protesta ‘yong kalaban ko sa eleksyon. Ang sabi niya, nandaya daw po ako nang grabe dito sa Iloilo,” Robredo said referring to the electoral protest filed by former senator Bongbong Marcos against her.
“Binuksan naman ‘yong mga balota — walang nakitang pandaraya dahil hindi naman nandadaya ang mga tao dito sa Iloilo,” she added.
Iloilo, where the Vice President received 573,829 votes in the last election, was one of the three pilot provinces named by Marcos in his electoral protest.
