Leni Robredo Concedes!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Subject to fact-checking by Rappler and Vera Files) –  A lot can happen within just a few hours, including a complete turnaround in statements by Vice President Leni Robredo.

At 8:21 PM on 4/19/18, Robredo tweeted that with truth on her side, she will overcome, referring to the ongoing recount of the 2016 Vice Presidential election ballots.

Then, at 3:00 AM on 4/20/18, the VP tweeted  it was imminent that Bongbong Marcos will triumph in his electoral protest.

Robredo’s sudden change of heart is most likely part of damage control where the recount could potentially diminish her narrow lead in the 2016 elections.  Already, her lead has been reduced by 5,000 votes.  It’s called saving face.
