QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The 2022 Philippines Presidential Election is three long years away but Vice President Leni Robredo is way ahead of the game.
Today, she formally launched her bid to succeed Rodrigo Duterte as the country’s next chief executive.
In an invitation-only press conference at Club Filipino, she unveiled the first of a series of campaign posters that she hopes will endear her to Filipino voters.
In a wise move that would allow her to circumvent Comelec (Commission on Elections) rules against early campaigning, her propaganda team designed the poster with her carricature but not her name. The poster simply says “Ready to be President.”
“This would make it difficult for opponents or Comelec to charge her for any campaign violation,” her PR team told The Adobo Chronicles.
