I woke up early morning for the Philippine elections, Halalan 2022 so that I can be at the precinct to vote as early as 6AM at the Talisay City Central Elementary School in Cebu. The earlier, the better as I don’t want to spend more time waiting. My sister gave me a list of local candidates to vote while I listed down my preferred candidates for the Presidential, Vice Presidential, senatorial positions and for the partylist.
Of course, I am for better governance and real change so I voted for VP Leni Robredo as my President and Kiko Pangilinan for VP. For the senators, I have included most of the Tropa senatorial candidates and added some. For the partylist, P3PWD for better representation of persons with disabilities and for ex-commissioner Rowena Guanzon to be part of the next congress.
This is my photoessay for this Philippine elections, Halalan 2022.
Vice President Leni Robredo visited Cebu with her team last 24 February at the Southwestern University-PHINMA ballpark. The VP is the leading opposition candidate and lone woman vying for the presidency. This was one of her campaign sorties in the Visayas with Senator Kiko Pangilinan, her running mate and some senatorial candidates. The crowd of supporters and volunteers were mostly wearing pink shirts or face masks. Some were carrying pink balloons. Pink, by the way, is her campaign color.
I arrived at the venue almost 1600H with already a gathering crowd. I positioned myself at the center, just a meter away from the stage barrier to have a better vantage point. There were short speeches by the candidates and songs and dances by artists. What I did notice was that most were from the Youth sector belonging to different volunteer groups. There were those coming from the different municipalities of Cebu too.
By 1900H, the crowd started to go agog when Senator Kiko came to the stage followed by VP Leni Robredo. Their speeches was followed by a concert.
