MANILA, Philippines – Two days before the elections, presidential candidate Grace Poe’s husband, Teodoro Misael Daniel “Neil” Llamanzares, expressed confidence that his wife would win.
At Poe’s miting de avance on Saturday, May 7, Llamanzares was asked how he was feeling. “How do I feel now? Confident, energetic. We’re gonna make it, we’re still gonna make it,” he answered.
This comes on the heels of Poe asking her rival, Liberal Party standard-bearer Manuel Roxas II, to give way.
In a Facebook video posted Saturday, the Poe camp said that if Roxas quits the race, 41% of his supporters will vote for Poe, which would make her win over Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
Just a day before Poe’s video, Roxas called for an alliance against Duterte, who is a favorite to win. Poe turned down Roxas’ invitation and said she had no plans of withdrawing her presidential bid.
As of writing, the polls show Duterte leading with an average of 35.4%, followed by Poe at 22.8%, and Roxas at 19.3%. – Rappler.com
