Nagpahayag si Vice President Leni Robredo na bukas siya sa pagtakbo sa pagkapangulo sa susunod na 2022 eleksyon.
Sa isang panayam ni Robredo sa Bloomberg TV ay sinabi niyang bukas siya sa posibleng mangyari kung ito ang itinadhana sa kanya.
“I’m leaving everything open. We still have three years before the next presidential elections. A lot can still happen, and I’ve always said that the presidency is a destiny. There are so many politicians who have sought the presidency and have prepared for it for many years,” saad ni Robredo.
Aniya, may tatlong taon pa umano bago ang susunod na eleksyon kaya marami pang mangyayari.
Saad pa niya, bilang isang bise presidente dapat handa umano maging pangulo ng bansa.
“When I ran for the vice presidency, that was one of the prerequisites—that I’m ready to be President. Because the mandate of the Philippine Vice President is to take over if anything happens to the President. So I would not have ran for the vice presidency if I thought that I was not ready for the presidency,” saad ni Robredo.
Kumpyansa naman si Robredo na matatapos ang kanyang termino sa kabila ng kinakaharap niyang kaso kasama ang iba pang oposisyon.
“You know, the threat has always been there since Day 1. The signs have been there,” saad niya.
“The President requested for a separate inauguration. The President asked me to be a member of the Cabinet, and I tried very hard to work well with him as Housing Secretary. But you know, I could not help but be critical of policies which I think were not good for the country. And his stance on the drug war was one of them.”
“All of a sudden, I was asked not to attend Cabinet meetings anymore and we did not have any recourse but to resign because I felt like the portfolio that I was handling would suffer great deal if I did not have a good working relations with the President. I [also] have a protest case still pending against me. There is a sedition case which has been filed against me. So, threats are there. But while I feel like all the challenges are there,. I have trained myself not to be distracted by all the noise. I know that I will be here as Vice President only until 2022,” dagdag pa niya.
