MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – From the initial six names announced on June 12 for 1Sambayan’s choices for President and Vice President candidates in 2022, four have withdrawn their names: Grace Poe, Eduardo Villanueva, Chel Diokno and Vilma Santos-Recto. That leaves Leni Robredo and Antonio Trillanes on its list.
But the game’s not over until it’s over.
The Opposition coalition announced its second short list — wild cards if you will — for their 2022 Presidential and VP choices: Kris Aquino, Mar Roxas, Maria Ressa and Angel Locsin. As of press time, none of the wild cards have accepted or rejected their “nomination.”
This is a developing story.
