CITY OF CALAPAN––Presidential candidate and Vice President Leni Robredo on Thursday morning sought the help of local priests to fight disinformation during her visit to Pinamalayan town in Oriental Mindoro province.

In a live-streamed post on Facebook, Robredo told Diocesan priests in the second district, who were present at the meeting, that their biggest problem was “disinformation machinery” that had been installed for many years already.

Robredo said they were networking with religious groups to gather best practices even if they support different candidates because the fight is for elections that are not marred with disinformation.

“It doesn’t have to be a campaign for me but the truth so that the people’s decisions are based on the truth,” said Robredo.
