2022 PH presidential race

Rappler Talk: Aika Robredo on the 2022 presidential bid of her mom, VP Leni Robredo

How did Leni Robredo tell her daughters she was running for president? How are they dealing with online attacks? Aika Robredo answers this and more on Rappler Talk.

It was difficult for Vice President Leni Robredo’s three daughters – Aika, Tricia, and Jillian – to accept that their mother would seek the presidency in the 2022 elections.

But the Robredo siblings’ sense of duty ultimately prevailed. They are expected to go all-out in campaigning for the Philippine opposition leader as she faces the biggest battle of her political career so far.

Rappler’s political reporter Mara Cepeda sits down with Aika Robredo to discuss her mother’s tough discernment for 2022, what the Robredo siblings think about their mother’s running mate Senator Kiko Pangilinan, and the important lessons on leadership she learned from the Vice President.

This pre-recorded interview, conducted before Robredo announced her senatorial ticket, will air at 4 pm on Tuesday, October 19. – Rappler.com
