Watchmen Daily Journal - - Front Page -

Ahead of next year’s midterm elec­tions, Vice Pres­i­dent Leni Ro­bredo, who was in Ba­colod City yes­ter­day, called on vot­ers to sup­port “de­serv­ing” can­di­dates.

Ref­er­enc­ing the cur­rently low pop­u­lar­ity rat­ings for op­po­si­tion can­di­dates, the vice pres­i­dent said, “We want to present an al­ter­na­tive who may not be pop­u­lar.”

“If [vot­ers] see you,

talk to you, and feel you are a true per­son, they change their at­ti­tude,” she ex­plained.

Ro­bredo ac­knowl­edged Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte con­tin­ues to be pop­u­lar through­out the coun­try but noted, “It should not be a rea­son to vote for

some­one, just be­cause he or she is pop­u­lar.”

Mean­while, she said her party, the Lib­eral Party, should only field eight con­tenders in the 2019, adding, “We want to of­fer qual­ity can­di­dates.”/
