A President Leni Robredo Will Live In Malacañang of Bicol!

NAGA CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Naga Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo today promised that if elected President, she will abandon Malacañang Palace in Manila and will take up residence in the Malacañang of Bicol. She was referring to the Jesse Robredo Museum in Naga City.

”This is consistent with my desire to be closer to the people of laylayan (abandoned),” she said.

Robredo’s idea is nothing new. During the time of President Ferdinand E. Marcos, he would often hold office at the Malacañang of the North — the family’s residential home in Paoay, Ilocos Norte. President Rodrigo Duterte frequently flies to his hometown of Davao City, holding office at the Malacañang of the South.

Perhaps it is also time to have a Central Philippines Malacañang to be located in the Visayas. We just need to have a President from the region!

Comelec Accused Of Bias In Favor Of Leni Robredo

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo and her campaign for the 2022 Presidency is amassing lots of support all over the world as evidenced by bridges, buildings, fountains and the like being illuminated with the color pink. The campaign has adopted pink as its official color.

Now, the supposedly non-partisan Commission on Elections (Comelec) is being accused of favoring Robredo.

An ordinary netizen saw the glaring bias and took a photo of the Comelec offices at the Palacio del Gobernador in Manila. The photo shows a pink banner waving atop a pole just in front of the Comelec building.

The Adobo Chronicles tried to contact Comelec for comment but the telephone operator said all the Commissioners were busy fielding calls about the disqualification petition filed against former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

Presidential Aspirant Leni Robredo Encourages Vote Buying! (Video)

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – As reported by The Manila Bullletin, Vice President, Presidential aspirant, and widow of an Aquino cabinet member who died in a plane crash Leni Robredo has come out in the open to encourage vote-buying in the Philippines. Vote-buying is illegal in the country.

In a quote attributed to her, Robredo all but said that it is okay for Filipino voters to accept money from candidates who wish to pay for their votes, as long as they still vote according to their conscience.

Netizens immediately chastised Robredo for undermining voters’ integrity and commitment to fulfill their paid agreements with the paying candidates.

Still, others said they are open to being paid by the Robredo camp while still voting for Bongbong Marcos.

This is a developing story.
