“Hindi ako natatakot. Hindi ako kinakabahan dahil nang tinawag ko kayo para gisingin ng natutulog pang lakas, buong-buo ang naging tugon niyo. Tumutulong kayo sa mga nangangailangan, pinapakain ang mga nagugutom. Nagbibigay lingap sa mga nasalanta at sa may sakit. Nakinig sa kwento ng bawat Pilipino na dumadaing at naghahanap ng kasangga sa kanilang nga suliranin. Panatag ang loob ko dahil nakikita kong magkakahanay ng paniniwala nating mga Pilipino,” said Robredo at her partymates’ grand rally held in Bicol during the first day of the official campaign period for national election candidates.
At least 65 million Filipinos cast their vote in different polling places today. Voting precincts opened at 6 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m.
