Even former Duterte supporters are showering Robredo with support as Noreen Capili and Bituin Escalante openly welcomed the VP as their future president.

Robredo, during her speech, admitted it took a lot of time to decide whether to run for president or not. She even clarified that her decision to run was not ego-driven nor had a hint of self-interest.

She then expressed what she wanted for the Philippines to become better and rise from the pandemic. Robredo also wanted to end corruption in the country as well as the incompetence and incompassionate politicians.

“Ang kawalan ng maayos na pamahahala ang ugat ng ating maraming mga problema. At ito ang kailangang wakasan.

“At kung gusto nating tunay na makalaya sa ganitong sitwasyon, hindi lang apelyido ng mga nasa poder yung dapat palitan.

“Yung kurapsyon, yung incompetence, yung kawalan ng malasakit, kailangang palitan ng matino at mahusay na pamumuno.

“Handa dapat tayong iwaksi ng buong-buo ang mga agenda, ang mga interes, ang mismong mga tao at klase ng politika na sanhi ng pinag-daraanan ng bansa natin ngayon.

“Kung hindi ka lilinya ng malinaw, kung makikipag-kumpromiso ka, kung hindi mo man lang kayang sabihing mali ang mali, na-kaninong panig ka ba talaga? Malinaw kung nasaan ako.

“Nasa panig tayo ng mga sinasagad ang lahat para iraos ang sarili, ang pamilya, ang kapwa mula sa pandemyang ito.

“Iba-iba man ang konteksto natin, pamilyar sa ating lahat ang pakiramdam ng pagiging nasa laylayan.”

But now, Robredo said she is ready to run for president as she wants to make a change and return what is due to the Filipino people.

“Buong buo ang loob ko ngayon. Kailangan nating palayain ang sarili mula sa kasalukuyang sitwasyon. Lalaban ako. Lalaban tayo.

“Inihahain ko ang aking sarili bilang kandidato sa pagkapangulo sa halalan ng 2022. Malinaw sa lahat ang hamon na kinakaharap nation.

“Pero hindi kayang tabunan ng kahit na anong ingay ang katotohanan kung parehong uri ng pamamahala at pareho ang pagkatao ng mga magwawagi sa araw ng halalan, wala tayong aasahan na pagbabago.

“Dito tayo pupusisyon. Yung pagod, yung pakiramdam na parang wala kang kalaban-laban, na parang nagawa mo na ang lahat pero kulang pa rin.

“Yung pagnanasa na makaraos ng taumbayan, bibigyan natin ng bago at positibong anyo. Gagawin natin itong paninindigan, gagawin nating enerhiya.



“Tatalunin natin ang luma at bulok na klase ng politika. Ibabalik natin sa kamay ng karaniwang Pilipino ang kakahayang magdala ng pagbabago.”
