MAKATI CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Makati Bureau) – In what was considered unprecedented in the history of Philippine politics, three presidential candidates conceded the race even before the elections happened.
In a hastily-called press conference at the Manila Peninsula, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Senator Ping Lacson and Norberto Gonzales all conceded the May 9, 2022 elections.
They conceded that Vice President and presidential aspirant Leni Robredo is a distant No. 2, trailing frontrunner former Senator Bongbong Marcos who is leading in all polls by as much as 60%.
Robredo seemed unfazed by the concession made on her behalf as she focused in pursuing legal action against the perpetrator/s of the non-existent viral sex video of daughter Aika.
Senatorial candidate and Robredo supporter Antonio Trillanes, who was involved in a previous coup attempt at the Manila Peninsula was not invited to the press conference.
