KORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato, Philippines — In stark contrast to the three presidential bets who held a presser at a five-star hotel, presidential candidate and labor leader Leodegario “Ka Leody” de Guzman held his press conference in an open cottage at the Rizal Park here to reject calls for Vice President Leni Robredo to withdraw from the presidential race.

“Parang suntok sa buwan ang kanilang panawagan … Napaka-imposible naman na gawin ni VP Leni na siya ang mag-withdraw,” the Laban ng Masa standard-bearer said, referring to the demand of presidential bets Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso, Sen. Panfilo Lacson and former National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales on Easter Sunday for Robredo to withdraw from the race.

De Guzman pointed out that Robredo was way far ahead in surveys from Domagoso, Lacson, and Gonzales to even think of withdrawing.

He called on the presidential contenders to unite against former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. instead of bickering among themselves.
