    Ilonggos muster biggest political rally for VP Leni’s presidential bid

    Ilonggos muster biggest political rally for VP Leni’s presidential bid

    Iloilo proved that it remains to be Vice President Leni Robredo’s bailiwick, making history after over 40,000 Ilonggos filled the Iloilo Sports Complex and mustered its biggest political rally to date.

    Iloilo’s native son, Senator Franklin Drilon, before introducing Robredo onstage, described the event as the “biggest political rally” in the province while Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas gave the 40,000 crowd estimate.

    Drilon said in jest that the huge crowd only showed that Ilonggos can match the Bicolanos’ love for Robredo, who was born in Naga City.

    “Malapit na malapit din po kayo sa puso ko. Halos lahat na bayan at lungsod dito sa inyong lalawigan napuntahan ko na dahil sa iba't ibang mga proyekto natin sa Office of the Vice President. Ang isang tumatak po sa akin: 'Yung lambing ng Ilonggo. 'Yung katapatan sa salita at gawa. At ang pinakahinahangaan ko: 'Yung kapasidad ninyong magbayanihan,” Robredo said in her speech, noting how Ilonggos mobilize fast to extend help whenever there are calamities.

    She also said that Ilonggos always choose the right public servants for their province. “Isinasabuhay nila ang gobyernong tapat. Kaya naman sa Iloilo, umaangat ang buhay ng lahat,” Robredo said.

    Iloilo’s people’s rally for Robredo coincided with the 36th anniversary of the People Power Revolution, and in her speech, the presidential candidate shared with supporters her memories of how millions of people toppled the 20-year Marcos dictatorship.

    “Naaalala ko pa noong 1986: Ang pagtindig at pagkakaisa ng taumbayan para wakasan ang pang-aabuso ng diktadurya,” Robredo said.

    “Ang kuwento sa akin, dito mismo sa Iloilo, kahit hatinggabi, nang umabot ang balitang napatalsik na ang diktador, bumukas ang mga ilaw, tumunog ang kampana, at nagmartsa ang mga residente papunta sa Katedral ng Jaro. Ang mga sundalo, nakipagkamayan sa karaniwang tao. Nagyakapan ang mga estranghero,” Robredo said to the audience, many of whom had not yet been born during the EDSA event.

    Robredo thanked her supporters for their unflagging energy reminiscent of the passion that fueled EDSA decades ago.

    “Ganito pong enerhiya ang muli nating binubuhay ngayon. Ganitong lakas ang muli ninyong ginigising. At sa pagwagi natin sa Mayo, bibitbitin natin ang mga aral na nakaraang tatlumpu't anim na taon: Na pinakamatibay ang pagkakaisa kung nakatuntong ito sa katotohanan at hustisya. Na hindi lang kulay o apelyido ang dapat palitan. Kailangang wakasan ang luma at bulok na uri ng politika. Kailangan itong palitan ng sistemang aktibong nakikinig, aktibong hinahanap ang nadadapa para itindig sila,” Robredo said.

    “Ang itatayo natin, sistemang walang palakasan, walang pami-pamilya, dahil lahat nabibigyang-lakas, at bawat Pilipino, itinuturing na bahagi ng isang pambansang pamilya,” she said.

    Tireless and hardworking, Robredo started her daly long campaign in Iloilo in the town Oton where thousands of supporters gathered to meet her even before 7am. She also visited Concepcion, Ajuy, Passi, Pototan, and Sta. Barbara where mini-people’s rallies were held. Her supporters kept their energy high, cheering and showing their love for Robredo, who was accompanied by her three daughters, Aika, Tricia, and Jillian.

    The star-studded grand rally featured Megastar Sharon Cuneta, wife of Robredo’s running mate, Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, and legendary Pinoy rock star, former Eraserheads frontman, Ely Buendia.

    The rally turned into a mini-concert as Buendia performed his ex-band’s hit songs. He is one of the most influential endorsers of Robredo’s presidential bid. [End]
