MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo is known to be an advocate for those in the ”laylayan” (bottom rung of society). And she is being true to her advocacy.
In an interview on the presidential candidate forum sponsored by the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Robredo said that Filipinos don’t really dream for the grandest things. They just want to be given space to realize their (lowest) dreams.
With this statement, Robredo practically wants those in the laylayan to remain where they are — at the bottom rung of society.
