The 2022 presidential campaign of Leni Robredo began on October 7, 2021, when she filed her candidacy for the 2022 Philippine presidential election. [13] Leni Robredo is the incumbent vice president of the Philippines since June 30, 2016, and was a former representative of Camarines Sur's 3rd congressional district.

Contents

She had been considered as a potential presidential candidate for the 2022 elections since winning the 2016 Philippine vice presidential election; in 2021, she publicly expressed her interest to run for the presidency. [14] After being nominated by an opposition coalition, 1Sambayan, she officially announced her candidacy in a press conference on October 7, 2021. [13] She ran as an independent candidate despite being the chairperson of the Liberal Party, a move she explained as signifying her openness to alliances. [15] On October 8, Robredo announced that her running mate would be incumbent senator Francis Pangilinan. Their campaign was officially launched on February 8, 2022, in Robredo's hometown, Naga. [16]

Robredo ran on a platform based on good governance and transparency. [17] [18] [19] To address the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines and its effects on the economy, she vowed to prioritize improving country's healthcare system, [20] developing the country's industries, [21] supporting small and medium-sized enterprises, [22] and providing stable employment.

Robredo lost the election to Bongbong Marcos, garnering 27.94% of the vote and placing second. Robredo later urged her supporters to accept the results of the election, but did not explicitly concede to Marcos. [23] Had Robredo been elected, she would have been the third female Philippine president after Corazon Aquino and Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, the first president to come from the Bicol Region, and the third vice president to run for the presidency and win.

Background

2016 vice presidential campaign and vice presidency

Leni Robredo ran in the 2016 Philippine vice presidential election as the running mate of Mar Roxas under the Liberal Party ticket. She won with 14,418,817 votes, or 35.11 percent of cast ballots, narrowly defeating her closest rival, then Senator Bongbong Marcos, by 263,473 votes or by 0.64 percent, [24] the narrowest margin since the 1965 vice presidential election. Marcos filed an electoral protest on June 29, 2016; this would be dismissed by the Presidential Electoral Tribunal on February 16, 2021. [25] On June 30, 2016, Robredo was sworn in as vice president of the Philippines at the Quezon City Reception House. [26]

She previously expressed disinterest in running for higher office. During her 2016 campaign, she stated that incumbent vice presidents should be barred from seeking the presidency. [27] She also reiterated her disinterest in November 2020 [28] and March 2021, [29] although in June 2021, she expressed her openness to run for the presidency. [14]

1Sambayan

In March 2021, former Supreme Court associate justice Antonio Carpio launched 1Sambayan (read as "isambayan", meaning "one nation"), a coalition that aimed to place one opposition candidate. [30] Carpio was aiming not to split the vote, pointing out that Duterte won over Mar Roxas and Grace Poe in 2016 because those who were against him were not united. [31] 1Sambayan formally began its selection process for a presidential and vice-presidential tandem on June 12, 2021, when they announced their six initial nominees. These included senator Grace Poe, vice president Leni Robredo, former senator Antonio Trillanes, human rights lawyer and former senatorial candidate Chel Diokno, incumbent house deputy speaker Vilma Santos-Recto, and CIBAC representative and house deputy speaker Eddie Villanueva. [32] Robredo, Trillanes, and Villanueva expressed their support for unity in the middle of 2022 under 1Sambayan. [33]

On September 30, 2021, the 1Sambayan coalition of the opposition nominated Robredo as their standard bearer. [34] Former education secretary Armin Luistro, one of the convenors of the group, announced Robredo's acceptance of the nomination and the filing of her candidacy on October 5. [35] Robredo's spokesman later clarified, however, that Robredo had yet to accept the nomination, and would be announcing her decision before October 8. [36]

On October 7, 2021, Robredo officially announced her candidacy and later filed her certificate of candidacy for the election. [13] She ran as an independent politician rather than under the Liberal Party despite being its chairperson. Robredo's camp explained that this move represented her openness to forming alliances with other political groups. [15] During the CNN Philippines presidential debate, she explained that she broke her previous vow to not run for the presidency because of fake news and disinformation, enabling corruption and the "politics of the past." [37] In a separate interview, she also cited Bongbong Marcos' candidacy as one of the reasons for pushing her to run.

After Robredo announced her presidential candidacy, several sources from the Liberal Party indicated that the party's president, senator Francis Pangilinan, would be her running mate in her presidential bid. [38] [39] Pangilinan filed his candidacy for vice president a day after Robredo. While Robredo chose to file her candidacy as an independent candidate, despite remaining as the Liberal Party's chairperson, Pangilinan ran as the party's standard-bearer. [40]

Key officials

Despite running as an independent, figures from the Liberal Party and its allied parties still remain key participants in her campaign.

Robredo describes her campaign as a "people's campaign," citing her supporters' efforts in organizing her campaign, with rallies organized by local chapters of the volunteer-driven Robredo People's Council (RPC). [42] [43] The color for the campaign's launch has been hot pink, to signify "protest and change," and was popularized by 'Dapat si Leni', a group of Robredo supporters. This was a deviation from the bright yellow motif commonly associated with the Liberals. [44] [41] Her campaign initially planned to use blue as their main campaign color, [45] but had yet to adopt a final theme color. [44] [46] [47] However, pink has been used by and associated with Robredo and her campaign. According to Robredo, pink is "the color of a personality that is open, listening, and loving." [48] The campaign's supporters adopted the moniker kakampink, a portmanteau of kakampi, which is Filipino for "ally", and "pink". [49]

On January 11, 2022, Robredo and her campaign team unveiled their campaign tagline, "Gobyernong Tapat, Angat Buhay Lahat" (Honest Government, a Better Life for All). Based on Robredo's "Angat Buhay" program under the Office of the Vice President, the slogan was made to reflect the campaign's platform of good governance and transparency. [12] On February 7, a day before the official start of the election campaign season, Robredo's campaign adopted the pink rose flower as its official symbol. [50]

Several songs have been made for and or used by the campaign. The song "Kay Leni Tayo" (We're for Leni) was created for free by Nica del Rosario, Mat Olavides, Jeli Mateo, and Justine Peña. [51] Del Rosario also made another song for the campaign, "Rosas" (Rose), featuring Gab Pangilinan (Francis Pangilinan's niece), while Ogie Alcasid released "Handa Ka Na Ba kay Leni" (Are You Ready for Leni). Other songs used in Robredo's campaign rallies include "Liwanag sa Dilim" (Light in the Dark) by Rivermaya and "Alapaap" by the Eraserheads. [52]

On October 24, 2021, Robredo campaign volunteers held a nationwide "caravan of hope." An estimated 10,000 supporters joined the caravan. [53]

On February 8, 2022, Robredo held her proclamation rally in Plaza Quezon in her hometown, Naga City, Camarines Sur. [16] Prior to the proclamation rally, they held a mini-rally in Libmanan, Camarines Sur. [54] The proclamation rally was attended by Robredo, Pangilinan, and their senatorial slate. On February 13, 2022, Robredo and her supporters held a campaign rally at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City. [55] The rally, dubbed "Pink Sunday," was attended by thousands of supporters, which was estimated to be at least 20,000. [56] Due to the sheer number of supporters, the event resulted in a spillover crowd that violated several safety protocols set by the local government. [57] Robredo's camp later apologized for the incident. [57]

After the Pink Sunday rally, Robredo campaigned in the provinces of Capiz and Aklan. [58] The following week, Robredo began her campaign in Mindanao with a rally and caravan in Iligan. [59] Meanwhile, Pangilinan campaigned in Tarlac with his wife, Sharon Cuneta. [60] On February 25, Robredo campaigned in Iloilo, with an estimated crowd of 40,000 joining her at the Iloilo Sports Complex. [61] On March 2, Robredo campaigned in Manila, which was followed by a sortie in Cavite on March 4. [62] [63]

On March 20, Robredo's campaign held their largest rally then at Ortigas Center in Pasig, which was dubbed the "PasigLaban grand rally". Organizers estimated that 180,000 attended, local police, on the other hand placed their estimate at 137,000. [64] The record turnout was later surpassed by the April 9 rally dubbed as "Manalakáran: Pampanga People's Rally" in San Fernando which drew about 220,000. Regional police officials at first denied the organizers' estimate, saying that the venue could accommodate only 70,000 people. [65] [66] but later clarified that the 70,000 figure was for security planning purposes only and not meant to indicate audience size according to regional police director Matthew Baccay. [67]

On April 23, Robredo celebrated her 57th birthday at a rally, labeled as a street party by media outlets, along Macapagal Boulevard in Pasay. According to organizers, they had estimated the crowd to have 412,000 people, making it the largest rally at that time. [68] [69] [70] However, the National Capital Region Police Office stated that only around 70,000 to 80,000 people attended. [71] Robredo held her miting de avance at Makati, drawing 780,000 people, making it the biggest rally, ahead of Pasay's rally of 412,000.

Polling

Graphical summary

Opinion polls conducted before the filing of candidacies showed Robredo garnering about 5 to 10 percentage points of voting intentions. [162] [163] [164] Her numbers significantly improved by late 2021, after the filing of candidacies. A survey conducted by Pulse Asia on December 1–6 showed Robredo polling ahead of other presidential candidates but behind Bongbong Marcos, garnering 20 percent, 12 percentage points more than the pollster's previous survey conducted pre-filing or on September 6–11. [165] Surveys conducted on the same period by OCTA Research and Publicus Asia showed Robredo polling 14 and 20.2 percent respectively. [166] [167]

By early 2022, she had consistently ranked second, behind frontrunner Marcos, garnering about 15 to 20 percent of voting intentions. [168] [169] [170] [171] After the CNN presidential debate and the first PiliPinas Debates 2022 , Robredo's numbers rose. A poll conducted by Pulse Asia on March 17–21 showed Robredo polling at 24 percentage points, nine points more than the pollster's previous survey conducted at the start of the campaign period (February 18–23). [172] This was corroborated by the Publicus Asia poll conducted on March 30 – April 6, with Robredo garnering 23 percentage points. [173] Another poll by Laylo conducted on the same period showed Robredo at 19 percentage points. [174]

Senatorial slate

Robredo and Pangilinan endorsed the following candidates for the 2022 Philippine Senate election, thus forming the tandem's "senatorial slate" referred to as "Team Robredo–Pangilinan": [175] [176] [177] [178] [179]

Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri was initially included in the senatorial slate as a guest candidate. However, Zubiri later endorsed the presidential campaign of Bongbong Marcos, contrary to an agreement made with all guest candidates not to openly endorse a presidential candidate. Prompted by calls from their supporters to remove him from the slate, campaign spokesperson Barry Gutierrez confirmed on April 27, 2022, that Zubiri was no longer part of their slate, continuing their campaign with only 11 senatorial candidates fielded. [180] [181]

Endorsements

After her bid was announced, Robredo received support from Filipino netizens in various social media platforms; the hashtags #LetLeniLead and #LabanLeni2022 trended on social media. Various personalities have publicly expressed their support for Robredo. [182] [183] Robredo has also received endorsements during her campaign from several politicians, particularly those aligned with the opposition.

Political positions

Abortion

Robredo is not in favor of abortion, citing her faith as a Catholic. [184] However, she is open to talks of decriminalization, at least in certain cases. [185] [186]

Divorce

Robredo does not support divorce, asserting that annulment in the country should be made more accessible first. She said women are often unable to leave their marriages because they are financially dependent on their husbands, and economic empowerment can help them become capable of walking away from abuses. [187] [188] She has, however, stated her openness to hear "divergent opinions" regarding abortion, divorce, and death penalty. [189]

Education

Robredo has criticized the quality of education in the country, citing it as the cause for unemployment. [190] On November 4, 2021, she released her "Kalayaan sa COVID" (Freedom from COVID) plan, a portion of which is dedicated to education, "Kalayaan sa kakulangan sa education" (Freedom from lack of education). [191] This includes the reopening of face-to-face classes in low risk areas, giving gadgets to students in high risk areas, ensuring free access to quality education materials on the Internet, and establishing "community learning hubs" where students without Internet access and electronic devices can borrow such. She will allocate 68 billion (about US$1.3 billion) in education aid for 22 million students, with each being given ₱300 (about $6). She also plans to raise the education budget to 6 percent of the country's GDP if elected. [192] She has also said she would declare an "education crisis" if she assumes office, so that the government can adopt an "all hands on deck approach" on education. [193]

Economy

On December 11, 2021, her campaign team released her "Hanapbuhay para sa lahat" (Livelihood for all) plan, detailing her agenda to revive industries, provide stable employment, and ensure the protection of worker's rights and improving labor conditions. [194] She plans to develop the country's marine, manufacturing, climate, and technological industries. She also plans to modernize the agriculture sector and support the micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSME) sector. [195] During the first PiliPinas Debates 2022, she re-emphasized her support for MSMEs and vowed to make a ₱100 billion (about $1.9 billion) stimulus package for small businesses. [196]

Foreign policy

Robredo has called for the government to reassert its sovereign rights in the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea) amid the territorial dispute between China and various nations in Southeast Asia. She has vowed to continue the full modernization of the armed forces and build a credible defense around the country's waters. She has also pushed for multilateral talks in settling the maritime dispute with China. [186] [197] During a meeting with the Rotary Club of Manila on October 14, 2021, Robredo declared that she would only enter any deal with the government of China regarding the territorial disputes such as joint explorations if China recognizes the Permanent Court of Arbitration's 2016 ruling favoring the Philippines. She later clarified that her administration is nevertheless willing to cooperate with China on other policy areas, particularly trade and investment. [198]

Health

Robredo's "Kalayaan sa COVID" (Freedom from COVID) platform plans to address the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. [191] Major components of this plan include the implementation of the universal health care law, reform of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth), reducing the members of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, expanding health workers' benefits, and strengthening local health units. Robredo also supports efforts to boost testing and vaccination to withstand another COVID-19 surge. [199]

Infrastructure

Robredo has expressed support for the Build! Build! Build! infrastructure program of the current administration. She vows to continue the program, but she will prioritize public–private partnerships (PPPs) instead of official development assistance (ODA). She has also said that her proposed infrastructure projects will be under one program. [200] [201]

LGBT issues

In a campaign rally, Robredo committed to protect LGBT rights. [202] She supports same-sex civil unions, [184] but iterated that she is against same-sex marriage. [203]

Notes

  1. Partido Reporma originally nominated Panfilo Lacson as its standard-bearer until March 24, 2022, when it dropped him in favor of Robredo. While Lacson will now run as independent candidate, Reporma continues to endorse his running mate Tito Sotto as its vice presidential candidate and will continue to appear on the ballots as Lacson's party. [8]
  2. If available, the estimated attendance figures are that of third-party authorities, such as the Philippine National Police.
