Responding to clamor for her to unify and rally all dissenting voices and lead the political opposition against the candidates of PresidentRodrigo Duterte , Vice President Leni Robredo on Thursday, October 7, announced she was running for President in the 2022 national elections.

“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,” Robredo said in the much-awaited announcement.

Robredo, chairman of the former ruling, now opposition party Liberal Party, will lead as standard bearer of the opposition coalition 1Sambayan, which endorsed her for president.

The ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) of President Duterte has yet to name its presidential candidate.

The deadline for filing of Certificate of Candidacy (COC) is set by Comelec on October 8 and four presidential candiddates have already filed their bids: Senator Ping Lacson, Senator MannyPacquiao, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

Robredo will file her certificate of candidacy for president at around 3 pm on Thursday.

“Tatalunin natin ang luma at bulok na klase ng politika. Ibabalik natin sa kamay ng karaniwang Pilipino ang kakayahang magdala ng pagbabago. Alam kong marami sa inyo ang ilang buwan nang kumikilos nang kusa tungo sa layuning ito. Ramdam na ramdam ko ang tiwalang kaloob ‘nyo sa akin. Sinasabi ko ngayon: Buong buo rin ang tiwala ko sa inyo,” she said.

“Buhay at kinabukasan ng Pilipino ang pinag-uusapan natin ngayon. Pinipilahan ang mga ospital, dumadaing ang mga health workers, at nagugutom ang mga nawalan ng trabaho,” she said.

“Ihayag ang katotohanan na sa kabila ng mga limitasyon, sa kabila ng panggigipit, sa maliit na tanggapan pa lang natin dito sa Office of the Vice President, napakarami na nating nagawa para makatulong,” she said.
