Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, during his visit to Cavite, Mayor Isko Moreno said that if he wins president, he is willing to make Vice Pres. Leni Robredo a member of his Cabinet if Vice President will agree to it. She is also running for president in the upcoming election as an independent candidate.
