VP Leni Robredo can resolve WPS issue according to Edu Manzano
EDU MANZANO – The actor believes Vice President Leni Robredo is likely to end the dispute in the West Philippine Sea (WPS) between the Philippines and China.
Robredo is gearing up for the highest position in the government this coming May 9, 2022 election.
Together with her runningmate, Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, they will go against the tandem of; former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Doc Willie Ong, Senator Manny Pacquiao and Buhay partylist representative, Lito Atienza as well as Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson and Senator Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.
In a campaign commercial, Manzano said WPS is rich in marine resources that will help Filipinos to have jobs and food.
But due to the ongoing conflict in the said area, Filipinos are not able to catch fish properly there.
It can be recalled that the Philippines won the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague but China still did not respect the said decision.
According to Edu Manzano, Robredo has the qualities of a leader who can fight for the rights of the country and its fishermen.
“Kailangan natin ipaglaban yung sa atin. At kailangan natin ng lider na handang pumalag dahil ang ‘atin ay atin,” he said. “Yun mismo ang sinabi ni VP Leni Robredo tungkol sa West Philippines Sea.”
Edu Manzano also believes that Robredo is capable of leading the Philippine army.
“Kaya ilan sa ating magagaling na dating miyembro ng Armed Forces ang nagsasabi at naniniwala na si VP Leni Robredo lamang ang may kakayahan, talino at tapang para maging Presidente at Commander-in-Chief natin,” Manzano said.
“Ipaglalaban niya ang Pilipinas para sa Pilipino,” he added.
Robredo is one of those open to “joint exploration” between the Philippines and China. But according to her, the latter must first recognize the arbitral ruling.
