Presidential candidate and Vice President Leni Robredo returns to Tagum, capital city of Davao del Norte, after sealing her alliance with former House speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, Davao del Norte 1st District representative.

Alvarez is hosting a grand rally for Robredo at the open grounds of the New City Hall in Tagum City on Thursday, April 7. It is expected to be a show of force for the opposition leader right in the heartland of President Rodrigo Duterte’s bailiwick, Davao. Alvarez was an ally of the President until he was ousted as House speaker in 2018.
