Last minute team-up with VP Robredo? Anything’s possible, says Pacquiao
MANILA, Philippines — Anything is possible until November 15, presidential aspirant Sen. Manny Pacquiao said Friday when asked on a possible team-up with Vice President Leni Robredo who is also vying for the top government post in next year’s elections.
While both Pacquiao and Robredo have filed their certificates of candidacy (COC) for president, the senator said he is still open to the possibility of teaming up with the vice president, especially as the Commission on Elections (Comelec) allows substitution of candidates until November 15.
“Hanggang hindi pa tapos ang November 15, anything can happen, possible sa lahat ng mangyayari. Hindi tayo nag-close ng door hanggang nandyan pa ‘yan pero happy ako sa aking Vice President ngayon si Lito Atienza,” Pacquiao said in an interview on ABS-CBN News Channel.
(Anything can happen until November 15, anything’s possible. We are not closing our doors, but I am happy with my vice presidential running mate, Lito Atienza.)
Back in August, Robredo admitted holding talks with Pacquiao for a unified ticket in the 2022 elections.
