Poe supporters fill Plaza Miranda ahead of ‘miting de avance’
Supporters and friends of presidential aspirant Senator Grace Poe on Saturday filled the historic Plaza Miranda in Quiapo, Manila ahead of her and Partido Galing at Puso’s “miting de avance.”
The event is scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m. until 7p.m.
Supporters wearing white shirts, Poe’s campaign color, and holding placards with her name and that of running mate, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, have started to arrive hours before the schedule.
Some of Poe’s staff members and friends were also spotted taking selfies as the campaign officially ends Saturday.
Before this, Poe’s team also held a separate miting de avance in Urdaneta, Pangasinan, the home province of her adoptive father, the late action star Fernando Poe Jr.
Poe said she was writing her own message for her final sortie at Plaza Miranda.
“Alam mo ‘pag galing sa puso, lalong-lalo na ‘pag ikaw ang nagsusulat, ay dumarating na lang ‘yan sa’yo (When you are writing from the heart, your thoughts flow naturally),” she told reporters in Pangasinan when asked what she would say at Plaza Miranda.
“Pero alam ko, sa mahabang panahon ng pagkakampanya na ito, kasi marami na akong naramdaman na pwede kong ilahad (But I also feel that after this long campaign, I now have a feel on the things that I can still share with the people),” she added. IDL
