MANILA, Philippines — The upcoming 2022 presidential elections appears to be headed towards a showdown between Vice President Leni Robredo and former senator Bongbong Marcos, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Lawyer and Robredo’s spokesman Barry Gutierrez said in a statement that the increase in Robredo’s numbers, according to the latest Pulse Asia survey, affirmed the rally of support towards her.


Gutierrez noted that it is more than two times higher than the initial number of people who would vote for Robredo.

“The 12 point jump in VP Leni’s numbers, which more than doubles her results from the last survey, is definitive affirmation of the energy and momentum of the people’s campaign that emerged following her declaration of candidacy on October 7,” he said.

“2022 is now clearly a Robredo versus Marcos contest,” he added.

Earlier, Pulse Asia released its latest survey for the 2022 national elections. Robredo ranked second garnering 20 percent of the votes, if elections were held during the survey period of December 1 to 6, 2021.

However, Marcos was a far first, with 53 percent of the respondents voting for him.

But Gutierrez is still confident that Robredo would be able to gain more support due to her consistent and hands-on leadership.

“We are confident that in the next four months, VP Leni’s consistent, hands-on leadership and the enthusiastic efforts of our volunteers, will continue to broaden and increase her support,” he said.

“Simula pa lang ito. Ipapanalo natin ito,” he added.
