Vice Ganda, Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano declare support for their presidential bet
Vice Ganda, Kathryn Bernardo and Liza Soberano have endorsed their presidential bet in a campaign rally held in Pasay yesterday, April 23.
Vice Ganda rendered a song number and dedicated it as a birthday gift to Vice President Leni Robredo, as seen in a live stream video of her and her running mate Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan’s campaign event, on Robredo’s YouTube channel, also yesterday.
“Tuwing eleksyon na lamang, lagi tayong nagsasama-sama para magpanalo ng kandidato. Dapat magpanalo tayo ng mga sarili natin, ng pamilya natin at ng bansa natin. Tayo dapat ang manalo,” the comedian-TV host said. “Ang tagal-tagal na nating talo, ipanalo naman natin ang isa’t isa.”
(Every election, we gather together to make our candidates win. We should make ourselves, our families and our country win. We should be the winners. We have been the losers for the longest time, let’s make ourselves the winners this time.)
Vice Ganda officially endorsed Robredo by raising her hand in front of the crowd which, according to the event organizers, is estimated to have been over 400,000.
Bernardo and Soberano, although not present in the said event, showed their support through a taped video aired during the campaign rally. Bernardo spoke about her plan of voting for the presidential candidate while giving an account of the qualities a good leader should possess, which she sees in Robredo.
“Siguro mas madaling magplano kung may maaasahan kang subok na — masasandalang lider na handang iangat tayo sa lahat ng krisis,” Bernardo stated. “Kaya ako, ano plano ko? Ang plano ko sa May 9 gawing Pangulo si Leni Robredo. Sana kayo rin.”
(Maybe it is easier to plan if you have someone who is already experienced – a leader who is ready to lift us up from crises. So what is my plan? I plan to make Leni Robredo our president on May 9. I hope you do the same.)
Soberano, for her part, gave her well wishes to the vice president, assuring her of love and support.
“I, along with millions of Filipinos, believe in you and your capabilities to run this country. As a woman, it makes me extremely proud to see all that you have achieved and all that you bravely dream of doing for our country,” Soberano said.
Vice Ganda, Bernardo and Soberano joined the list of celebrities who have publicly expressed their support for Robredo’s presidential bid, which include Angel Locsin, Piolo Pascual, Daniel Padilla, Nadine Lustre, Anne Curtis, Carla Abellana, Kris Aquino and Ely Buendia. JB
