Vice President Leni Robredo said she has been talking with Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and other potential presidential candidates in the 2022 election, in an effort seen as aimed at forging a unity slate against the candidates of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Robredo, leader of the opposition and chair of the Liberal Party, said on Tuesday, July 20, that she is currently in “exploratory talks” with politicians whose names are being floated as potential presidential bets in the 2022 elections.
The Vice President named only Moreno among the politicians she was talking with .
Robredo said the initial exploratory talks, other than with Mayor Isko, included other contenders.
I won’t just name them for now because I don’t have the authority to say so. But we are in exploratory discussions, she said.
