Sabi ninyo wala naman akong pag-asang manalo, e, bakit ako pinag-aaksayahan ninyo ng panahon?
Vice President Leni Robredo dished out this line on Sunday as she lashed at her critics she accused of spending time and money to destroy her.
In her Sunday program over radio station dzXL, Robredo said attacks against her have something to do with the 2022 elections. The opposition Liberal Party is considering Robredo as its standard bearer.
“Bakit ba nila ako pinag-aaksayahan ng panahon, eh, mababa naman ako sa survey?” Robredo said.
Among the most vocal critics of Robredo is Malacanang chief legal counsel Salvador Panelo.
“Sabi ninyo wala naman akong pag-asang manalo, e, bakit ako pinag-aaksayahan ninyo ng panahon? Bakit ninyo ako ginagastusan,” she said.
“Pag-aksayahan ninyo ng panahon yung sinasabi ninyong may laban, yung mataas sa survey,” she added
A Pulse Asia in December had President Rodrigo Duterte’s daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte leading a pack of prospective presidential front runners in the 2022 polls.
Sara Duterte was followed by former Senator Ferdinand Marcos, Senator Grace Poe, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, and Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao.
Robredo came in sixth place, followed by Senators Panfilo Lacson and Bong Go.
