Iloilo City, the capital of Iloilo Province and the economic and political center of Region VI, have its skies casted in pink hue as depicted by this filtered photo describing the popular and hopeful sentiment of the Ilonggos; a gentle assertion for the upcoming May 2022 elections; and as a fair, just, and development-oriented people in this part of the archipelago.
The Ilonggos actively brought on their social media spaces photos with VP Leni, changing profile frames with pink color or photos in plain pink as a show of support for her bid and hope for the nation gripped by the health crisis and it impacts.
Highlights of VP Leni Robredo’s declaration for presidential bid for May 2022:
Ina akong nakikita ang pagdurusa ng minamahal kong bansa. Naniniwala ako: Ang pag-ibig, nasusukat hindi lang sa pagtitiis, kundi sa kahandaang lumaban, kahit gaano kahirap, para matapos na ang pagtitiis. Ang nagmamahal, kailangang ipaglaban ang minamahal.
Buong-buo ang loob ko ngayon: Kailangan nating palayain ang sarili mula sa kasalukuyang sitwasyon. Lalaban ako; lalaban tayo.
Inihahain ko ang aking sarili bilang kandidato sa pagkapangulo sa halalan ng 2022.
