Leni Robredo Willing To Withdraw From Presidential Race?

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Is Vice President Leni Robredo finally waking up to the reality that she has no chance of winning the Presidency in the May 2022 Philippine elections?

The Manila Times is reporting that Robredo is willing to unify with other Presidential bets, which many are interpreting to mean she is ready to withdraw from the Presidential race.

But the big question remains — who will she endorse?

Definitely not Bongbong Marcos. Probably not even Manila Mayor Isko Moreno who in a recent poll, has displaced Robredo from the distant No. 2 spot.

Will it be Ping Lacson, or Manny Pacquiao? Or any of the other candidates in Comelec’s list of 11 Presidential candidates?

Stay tuned!
