“Palapit na tayo. Ayon sa projections, mananalo tayo. Walang bibitiw. Sa huli, ang tama ang mananaig. Dasal pa tayo. #LabanLeni,” Robredo posted on Twitter.

Marcos’ lead ballooned to as much as one million early Monday evening and votes from Camarines Sur, Robredo’s bailiwick are still unaccounted for.

Robredo, on a separate Facebook post, said the end is still near but expressed confidence in her potential win.

“Hindi sa pinangungunahan natin ang ating mga institusyon, ngunit may sarili tayong operation quick count at nakakakita natin na sa dakong huli tayo ang mananaig,” Robredo said. “Malayo pa at hindi pa tapos ang opisyal na bilangan.”

(We’re not preempting our institutions but we have our own operation quick count and we could see in the end we will prevail. It’s still far from over and the official count is not yet finished.)

“Patuloy po tayong maghihintay at magbantay.”

(Let’s continue to wait and stay on guard.) TVJ
