WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Presidential candidate Vice President Leni Robredo returns to vote-rich regions Central Luzon and Calabarzon with just over a week until the May 9 elections.
In the first leg of her return to these regions, Robredo will barnstorm Bulacan, the 5th most vote-rich province in the country where 2 million votes are up for grabs. She had earlier secured the endorsement of Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando.
The presidential candidate will also return to Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and Quezon – areas in the most vote- rich Calabarzon, which has over 9 million voters.
Calabarzon is crucial for Robredo because in the March Pulse Asia survey, she was statistically tied with Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in that region. As of March 2022, Robredo has 37% voter preference in the region, versus Marcos Jr.’s 38%.
