Robredo tops mock elections in colleges


Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, vice presidential candidate of the Liberal Party (LP) in the May 2016 polls, has continued to top various mock elections being held in different colleges and universities all over the country.

In the latest mock elections conducted among students, faculty, administrators and staff at various campuses of the Ateneo de Manila University, Robredo took first place with 1,760 votes.

Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. was a far second with 244 votes while Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano took third place with 201 votes.

Robredo also topped recent mock elections in various campuses of the University of the Philippines, University of Saint La Salle in Bacolod City (Negros Occidental), University of Asia and the Pacific, Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro City (Misamis Oriental) and Silliman University in Dumaguete City (Negros Oriental).

These results supposedly showed that a growing number of youth voters across the archipelago are now inclined to support and vote for Robredo.

The recent surveys have shown Robredo’s meteoric rise from a measly 1 percent in October 2015 to 22 percent in the latest Pulse Asia survey that was released this week.

Youth groups from all over the Philippines supposedly have also begun to signify their support for Camarines Sur lawmaker as they have converged to form Youth for Leni Robredo (Y4L).

According to Maris Cortes, head of Y4L, many youth volunteers have been requesting campaign materials of Robredo.

These volunteers, Cortes said, have also started to organize activities such as flash mobs and market campaigns to help boost her candidacy.

Tech-savvy youth volunteers have also developed campaign materials and infographics that can easily be shared in social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

“We believe that she is the best candidate who can help young Filipinos achieve their dreams of being able to receive quality education and eventually find employment opportunities to help their families,” Cortes said.

  1. Truly Cong Leni if given a chance will surely helps in alleviating the plight of the poor for a better future.

  2. Finally, God has spoken and will bless our country with simple, smart and speedily response and actions to the country’s economic difficulty. I wish every Filipinos will rally to her side and make her VP. My wife and I voted for her as VP and I am an OFW.

  3. Bong bong Marcos will have a big surprise come election day. LR is now second in the polls and coming in very strong. When Leni talks, I feel she is one of us. Very humble, very easy to get along. I will surely vote for Leni come election day.

    • Indeed and this will show “crime does not pay”. The Marcoses should returned their ill gotten wealth. Instead Imee and 3 sons were reported to have hidden wealth as reported by Panama Papers.

  4. She rides a bus going to her province, rides taxi going to work. Lives in an apartment in Naga all her life. She’s simple, very much like us. It’s been quite a while since we had a leader like Pres. Magsaysay that really lives among us, walks among us. I’m gonna give this lady a try.

    • Yes Leni rides a bus going to her province as she says living a simple life but lugging an original louie vitton bag from one photo posted by her relative

  5. sana ang mga kabataan icampaign ng husto ang tandem ni Mar- Leni. together . As she said her trust and confidence is with Mar Roxas. They both discussed and formed their platform not separately but together. The plan is there for both of them to implement. .Alam na ni Leni ang kaniyang role at dapat gawin sa kanilang pagtupad ng kanilang plataforma. HIndi madali ang gusto ni Leni para sa nasa laylayan ng lipunan at kailangan niya ng tunay na kakampi. at ito ay walang iba kundi Mar Roxas.

    I find LR a truthful, trustworthy and the one who’ll look after the women’s and youth welfare. Her track record as public servant is still clean.
