MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – ‘Tis the season for coronations. King Charles. Beauty Pageant Queens. Leni Robredo.
Yes, Leni Robredo.
On the 1st anniversary of her devastating defeat in the May 9, 2022 presidential elections, her supporters are staging a big event at the MOA Arena. The ex-Vice President will be crowned “Missed President.”
It wasn’t clear whether the crowning of Ms. Robredo is a sour-grape ceremony or is, finally, a formal concession that she lost to her bitter rival, now President Bongbong Marcos.
Reigning Miss Universe, Filipino American R’Bonney Gabriel, will crown Robredo.
