- Sharon Cuneta chose to support Leni Robredo’s vice presidential bid
- She knew Robredo before she became a congresswoman
- She said the Liberal Party vice presidential bet knows what’s good for the country
Singer-actress Sharon Cuneta is among the TV personalities who declared their support to the vice presidential bid of Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo.
Other personalities who are supporting Robredo’s candidacy are, Kris Aquino, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes, Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano and Gary Valenciano, Agot Isidro, Bituin Escalante and Tutti Caringal
Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) quoted the “Megastar” as saying: “I have a couple of friends running for vice president. But my vice president, I have decided, is Leni Robredo because I’ve known Leni before she became congresswoman pa.”
Cuneta said people will say that when you enter politics, it’s impossible not to get your hands dirty, but she doesn’t believe that, emphasizing there are people like Robredo’s husband, the late former Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo and her husband, senatorial candidate Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan who are really good and honest people.
She believes that the Liberal Party (LP) vice presidential bet embodies what Sec. Robredo embodied before – someone who never stole and who worked hard for what he/she has now.
“And do not be fooled by her pagka-grandiosa, she’s a smart lady. She knows what’s good for the country. She’s honest, she is upright, people respect her. She’s lovely, she’s a lovely person. So, she’s my VP,” she added.
However, Cuneta did not disclose who she will vote for president.
When asked to give a message for the Filipino voters now that we are just a few days away from the May 9 elections, she said: “This is what I’ve been telling everybody, I think the barometer should be when you choose your president, especially when you believe in God, if you believe in a God that wants the best for you but has also given you a free will to choose what you want to do. I think, the person you should choose to be president is who you think God would pick to lead the country.”
