CAMARINES SUR Rep. Leni Robredo will be the running mate of Liberal Party (LP) standard bearer former Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas, according to Senate President Franklin Drilon.
Drilon, vice chairman of LP, said the party is most likely to pick Robredo but her nomination will undergo the usual process. He added that LP will be holding a meeting soon to tackle the issue.
Robredo is the widow of former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo who was killed in a plane crash in 2012.
“Sabihin na lang natin na si Congresswoman Leni na ang kandidato natin sa pagkabise-presidente (let’s just say that Congresswoman Leni is our candidate for Vice president),” Drilon said in a television interview Wednesday. JEFFERSON ANTIPORDA
