CAMARINES SUR, Philippines – When Vice President Leni Robredo raised the hands of the Otso Diretso senatorial bets onstage on Wednesday evening, February 13, it started raining.
But the thousands who gathered at Plaza Quezon in Naga City for the slate’s grand proclamation rally stayed put. The city, after all, is the bailiwick of the Vice President.
Robredo urged her fellow Bicolanos to help her campaign for Otso Diretso, most of whom are lagging behind in preelection surveys.
