SORSOGON CITY, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo’s second campaign day involved a tour of Camarines Norte and then Sorsogon — where she was welcomed by senatorial candidate and Sorsogon Governor Chiz Escudero in a program at the provincial capitol.

Robredo on Wednesday started her tour at Camarines Norte’s capital of Daet, where she reminded voters to be more discerning of candidates presenting themselves as the answer to the country’s problems — but have not delivered solutions when they had the chance.

“‘Pag nakaupo na ‘yung mga nahalal tayo ay nawawalan ng gana kasi naiisip natin wala din palang pagbabago. Pero nasa kamay natin lahat ang kapangyarihan. Pag sinabi ko pong nasa kamay natin, pagkakataon ‘yung 2022 elections para piliin natin ‘yung mga lingkod bayan na ang inaasikaso ‘yung tao hindi ang sarili,” she said.

“Kaya dapat po matuto na tayo. Bawat eleksyon nagsasabi tayo, wala naman palang pagbabagong mangyayari, ano po ‘yung aral doon? Huwag na nating iluklok sa kapangyarihan ‘yung mga hindi naman nagdadala ng pagbabago sa atin. Marami po ‘yung mangangako pero sino ‘yung papaniwalaan natin sa mga nangangako,” she added.

Robredo also said that she hopes politics in the province would not be a reason to be divisive, as she is advocating for a government that is clean and good — which all of them should aspire for.

“Sana po, sana po hindi maging dahilan ang politika para magkawatak-watak dahil ang isinusulong naman po natin ang klase ng pamamahala, isang klase ng pamamahala na matino at mahusay. Ang paniniwala po natin, kapag ang gobyerno tapat, aangat ang buhay ng lahat,” she explained.

After Daet, Robredo then stopped by Camarines Norte’s Labo town, where she also asked people supporting her to also support her entire slate — from her running mate Senator Francis Pangilinan and the senatorial candidates she picked.

“Kung tutulungan niyo po ako, kailangan tulungan niyo din ang mga kasama ko. Mas marami po tayong magagawa pag ‘yung mga kasama natin sa pamamahala ay pareho ‘yung mga paniniwala sa atin: Paniniwala sa isang malinis, matapat at mahusay na pamamahala,” she said.

“Kaya po, sa May 9, hindi lang po ako ang tutulungan pati si Senator Kiko Pangilinan as Vice President, Senator Dick Gordon as Senator, saka po ‘yung lahat nating mga kasama. Makikita niyo po ‘yun sa mga tarpaulin natin, isulat na po natin para hindi natin makalimutan,” she added.

Robredo also went to Sorsogon’s Gubat town, and then to Sorsogon City where she was welcomed by Escudero — who is part of the Vice President’s guest candidates.  Aside from Escudero, senatorial aspirants Chel Diokno, Sonny Matula, Teddy Baguilat, and Senator Richard Gordon accompanied the Robredo-Pangilinan tandem.

On Tuesdsay, Robredo’s team kicked off her campaign at her hometown province of Camarines Sur, touring Lupi and Libmanan towns before Tigaon, and then Iriga.  She culminated her day through a proclamation rally in Naga City, which drew huge crowds over Plaza Quezon.
