Unfazed by the poor ranking of the Liberal Party tandem in surveys, Malacañang is optimistic that former Interior and Local Government Secretary Manuel A. Roxas II and his running mate Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo would emerge victorious in the May elections.
Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said the electorate is likely to realize the stakes are too high to leave them to chance and would rally behind the “true candidates of reform.”
“The Feb. 15-20 Pulse survey shows the race tightening. The posturing is wearing thin as reality is catching up with those increasingly unable to withstand scrutiny. As the public’s attention and concentration increases the breakthrough of the true candidates of reform is imminent,” Lacierda said.
“We are confident that as clarity occurs, the public will take to heart that this nation has too much potential to risk any course other than continuity and stability through Daang Matuwid,” he added.
