Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo officially accepted the Liberal Party’s offer to be the running mate of Mar Roxas, the standard bearer of the ruling party.
The announcement took place Monday during the LP gathering titled “Daang Matuwid: To Be Continued.”
Robredo and her daughters arrived at the Kalayaan Hall of Club Filipino in San Juan City around 10 a.m. Monday for the LP gathering whose theme was “Daang Matuwid: To Be Continued.”
The lawmaker said she accepted the challenge to run for vice president because like her husband, former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, she also wants to continue the sacrifice to improve the people’s lives.
Earlier, Robredo posted a message on Twitter, saying: “To give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds.”
