Bahala na si Lord! Robredo: Presidency is destiny
Vice President Leni Robredo doesn’t want to plan a possible presidential run in 2022 even as she admitted to being open to the possibility of gunnig for higher office.
In an interview with a local television station in Naga on August 17, Robredo shared her belief that the presidency is destiny and one can never prepare enough for it.
“Mula umpisa, hanggang noong pinakahuling presidential elections, nakikita natin na ang daming taong nag-prepare, ang daming talagang handang-handa sila, pero hindi sa kanila iyong binibigay. So para sa akin, useless na paghandaan iyong presidency. Kasi kung para sa iyo, ibibigay iyon,” she said.
Robredo recalled that she never planned on running for congresswoman in 2013 or the vice presidency in 2016 but she won both elections.
“Sino ba naman mag-i-imagine na tatakbo ako? Pero nangyari. Kaya para sa akin, destiny, eh,” she said.
Robredo said she considers 2022 far away so she would rather spend her time on her office’s poverty alleviation program, Angat Buhay.
