MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –President Rodrigo Duterte and actress Angel Locsin have topped the list of “most admired” men and women in the Philippines in 2020.
This is the second year that both ranked first together in YouGov’s “World’s Most Admired” list among the women.
The survey didn’t sit well with Vice President Leni Robredo who ranked a distant No. 15.
OVP Spokesperson Barry Gutierrez told The Adobo Chronicles that the Vice President cannot accept that she ranked that low in the survey despite all her efforts to be in the limelight, issuing statements left and right about the Duterte government’s programs.
“The survey is fake,” Robredo said, “and is an attempt to discredit all the good things I have been doing and saying especially in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic that the country is facing.”
Gutierrez added that Robredo is worried that the Opposition which she heads might end up fielding Locsin as its Presidential candidate come 2022.
”I can’t allow a fading ABS-CBN star to outrun me, no matter if she’s Darna,” the VP said.
