Find out who is Salceda’s ‘saint’ in VP race
The 2016 vice presidential race will be as exciting as the presidential race with the presence of the ’saint among the brains,” Albay Gov. Joey Salceda said Wednesday referring to Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo.
“Si Leni kasi ibang level ang kanyang pagka-kandidato. She is the only saint among the brains. When you look at the VP aspirants, all the brains are there, lahat ng brainy politiclan, lahat ng political savvy andun,” Salceda told reporters.
He was referring to aspirants Senators Chiz Escudero, Alan Peter Cayetano, and Antonio Trillanes IV.
“Si Leni saintly, motherly. Saintly dahil may Jesse halo siya. She is a damsel in shining armor because fighter din yan e,” he added.
He further said that Robredo is also socially oriented and carries issues on women, gender, and human rights. “Very sectoral siya,” he said.
“Para sa akin mas excited ako sa debate sa VP for the first time,” said Salceda.
He noted that in the past it is the presidential race which gives flavor to the vice presidential race.
“But this one, the VP race will have its own flavor on its own. That makes the 2016 very exciting. All the brains are in the VP race plus one saint, so that is what you are having,” he said.
“Dati ang running mate pampanalo ng presidente, pangalawa yung spare tire. Ngayon stepping stone na at conscious and deliberate talagang target of the VP aspirant is to be president,” he said.
