Vice President Leni Robredo belied rumors that she will resign if no one from the opposition’s senatoriables will win in the elections.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, May 15, Robredo shared a screenshot of an image quoting the Vice President saying ‘If no one among the Otso Diretso will win the election, I will step down as vice president’.
“Not true,” Robredo said regarding the image. She also urged the public to continue fighting disinformation and report peddlers of fake news.
Based on the unofficial and partial count of election returns as of 2:19PM, none of the eight opposition candidates made it to the ‘Magic 12’ of the senatorial race.
Re-electionist sen. Paolo ‘Bam’ Aquino IV is currently at 14th place with 13,891,505 votes.
