Celebrity power couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera openly declared on Instagram their support for Liberal Party‘s vice-presidential candidate Leni Robredo, wife of the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo. According to recent news articles, Dingdong reportedly resigned from his post as youth commissioner of the National Youth Commission to be able to focus on the helping out in the Robredo campaign. What’s striking in the couple’s posts is their hashtag #AngPrinsipyoKoAyWalangPresyo.

On May 9, I join the appeal of 54.6 Million voters to protect the future of this country by supporting the candidacy of leaders whom we think deserve to be at the forefront of development (in this elections or the next). I may just be a drop in the ocean that is the 2016 Philippine Elections but in my humble perception of the situation, coupled with my deep recognition of whatever He throws my way, this is how I choose to contribute to the next “big event”. I choose to beyond the tag lines, the slogans, the gimmicks, and the colors. I am declaring my support to a person whom I strongly believe will champion our common interests of good governance, humble service, and sustainable reform. And I have every reason to believe that she will continue to do this regardless of the outcome of the elections. #leniismyvp #angprinsipyokoaywalangpresyo

Sa debate kagabi, naliwanagan ako sa kani-kaniyang mga pananaw ng mga kandidato sa pagka Bise Presidente. Dahil diyan, lalong tumibay ang aking paniniwala na si Congresswoman Leni Robredo ang susuportahan ko. Hindi lang dahil siya rin ang napili ng aking asawa, maging ng marami kong kaibigan at kakilala, kundi dahil kinakitaan ko sya ng sinceridad, integridad, kakayahang mamuno at maglingkod lalo na sa mga kababaihan at manggagawa na nasa laylayan ng lipunan. Matagal na siyang nasa public service bago pumasok sa politika at sa mga panahong ito ay hindi nabahiran ng katiwalian ang kanyang record at character kaya bilib ako sa kanya. Iba-iba man po tayo ng opinyon at gusto, sigurado ako na lahat tayo nangangarap ng mas maunlad at maayos na Pilipinas. Sa tingin ko, isa sa pangunahing paraan para makamit ito ay ihalal natin ang mga tamang tao. At para sa akin, tiwala ako sa pamumuno ni Leni Robredo kung sya ang magiging Bise Presidente ng ating bansa. Sa mga wala pang napipiling susuportahan, magdasal at suriin pong mabuti ang bawat kandidato para makapag desisyon ng tama. “May the best woman win” , sabi nga niya. #LeniismyVP ? @lenirobredo
