MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Remember the elections of 2016 where both Liberal Party Presidential candidate Mar Roxas and VP candidate Leni Robredo added “Daang Matuwid” to their names on the ballot?
Well, as they say, history repeats itself.
Today, presumptive Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates Robredo and Antonio Trillanes announced their preferred names when it comes to the official 2022 ballot.
Robredo wants her name listed as Leni “Lugaw” Robredo, while Trillanes wants his to be listed as Antonio “Kanin” Trillanes.
The two opposition stalwarts told The Adobo Chronicles that name recall counts a lot in most elections, so they would like to be listed based on the popular memes hurled at them for the last several years.
Makes. Real. Sense.
