Robin Padilla still in awe of his lead in the senatorial race

MANILA—Actor Robin Padilla has been steadily on top of the senatorial race and broadcast journalist Jessica Soho has already greeted him with “congratulations.”

In Jessica’s  live  interview with Robin via zoom and broadcast on GMA-7 on Monday, May 9, 2022, the actor said that he did not expect that he would be on top of the senatorial race because he had no machinery and money for his campaign.

The future senator said, “Wala po akong inaasahan kahit ano. Unang-una, wala po akong kahit ano.

“Wala po akong makinarya, wala po akong kahit ano… pera. Wala. Hindi ko po inaasahan ito.

“Ang akin lamang po ay paninindigan. Ang akin lamang po ay nananalig po ako sa Panginoong Diyos at tulung-tulong lang po ng mga naniniwala sa akin.

“Tulong ng katipunan, tulong ng mga rebolusyonaryo. Yun lang po, wala akong inaasahan.”

Robin who is known as one of the solid supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte, was endorsed by the President himself in this 2022 elections. He is also included in the senatorial lineup of  the Uniteam of Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte-Carpio.

When Jessica asked Robin why he suddenly became number one in the senatorial race, the actor just said, “Naniniwala po ako na yung plataporma ko na charter change, yung federalismo, yung pagbibigay ng kapangyarihan sa mga lalawigan, bigyan sila ng kalayaan, sila po ay makagawa ng ayon sa kanilang kultura, tradisyon, kapaligiran, dun po ako naniniwala.

“Hindi po ako nangungumbinsi nang dahil kay Robin Padilla. Malabo pong mangyari…”

Robin took advantage of that moment to thank all those who supported him in his candidacy which he believes are one with him in his desire to have a change in the constitution. 

“Ako po ay nagpapasalamat sa lahat po ng mga nagtiwala sa atin. Sa lahat po ng lumabas, bumoto para po sa akin, at naging matagumpay po ang eleksyon na ito.

 “Ang pakiramdam ko po ay masaya, siyempre po, pero mas higit po yung responsibilidad na nakaakibat po sa atin sapagkat alam ko naman po, batid ko naman po na itong tagumpay na ito, hindi po ito patungkol kay Robin Padilla kundi tagumpay po ito ng reporma.

“Yun pong ating ipinaliwanag na patungkol po sa pagpapalit ng saligang batas, yung charter change. Yun po ang plataporma natin na inihayag sa taumbayan,” Robin stated.(ECD/MTVN)
