Megastar Sharon Cuneta declared her support for Liberal Party (LP) vice presidential candidate Leni Robredo during a radio interview in Cebu City on Tuesday.
“She’s poised, very sharp, and she will make a good Vice President,” said Cuneta, who is also helping husband Kiko Pangilinan regain his Senate seat.
Cuneta encouraged listeners to vote not only for her husband but also for Robredo, whom she described as a very good friend.
Aside from Cuneta, actress/singer Agot Isidro also backed Robredo’s vice presidential bid, saying she is “my choice from the very start”.
“I don’t get paid to endorse a candidate. I choose wisely; considering every candidate and the position they are vying for,” Isidro said on her Instagram account.
“I liked her husband and what he stood for. I liked that she carefully considered running for this position and asked her kids for their opinion,” she added.
Isidro said she liked Robredo’s move to carefully consider running and even consulting her kids before accepting the challenge.
“When I read up on her background, I was impressed but how she answered the questions thrown at her tonight, I was blown away,” said Isidro, referring to the recent vice presidential debates.
“She was composed, unfazed, direct to the point, and she made sense,” added Isidro. “Leni Robredo is clearly and wholeheartedly by VP.”
Tutti Caringal, a vocalist of 6cyclemind and councilor of Cabuyao, Laguna, and Bituin Escalante both expressed support for Robredo.
Caringal even asked for a fan sign from the representative of the 3rd District of Camarines Sur, who obliged.
A lawyer for the poor, Robredo provided free legal aid to the marginalized sectors of society, including farmers, fishermen and abused women for a long time before becoming the representative of the 3rd District of Camarines Sur.
From sixth place in October, she is now in second place in the recent survey results with a month to go before the elections.
