Leni’s 400K+ bday crowd estimate super bloated

Fact-Check: Leni Robredo’s camp: Pasay rally crowd estimate at 400,000 plus

According to Mrs. Robredo rally organizers, 400,000 plus people attended their grand rally on Macapagal Blvd. Pasay City during the birthday of the Liberal Party’s (LP) chair on April 23, 2022.

According to a report by ABS-CBN on April 24, 2022, National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) said that the crowd estimate was around 90,000 to 100,000.

Manila Bulletin and DZRH, meanwhile, reported a crowd estimate of 70,000 to 80,0000 people attended the Saturday rally based on what was supposed to be an estimate from the NCRPO.

What is the actual score of the people who attended Mrs. Robredo’s birthday rally?

Rating: Mrs. Robredo’s camp report on the Pasay rally crowd estimate is entirely FALSE. FAKE NEWS!

Mrs. Robredo’s camp over-calculated the number of people who attended the Pasay rally on April 23, 2022.

ABS-CBN, on the other hand, also reported that the crowd estimate in the rally was between 90k to 100k attendees, also an over-estimate of the number of attendees.

Contrary to Mrs. Robredo’s over calculation and ABS-CBN’s slightly padded numbers, NCRPO had actually reported in a press release on April 25, 2022, that the April 23 rally which started from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. had more or less 70,000-80,000 supporters and volunteers who boarded 300 cars more or less, 15 buses, 100 motorcycles, and 15 public utility jeepneys.

Meanwhile, MMDA reported that they did a cleanup on April 24 along the Macapagal Blvd after yellow supporters left the rally’s vicinity on the night of April 23rd. Color pink trash was swept and collected by the MMDA cleanup personnel.
