The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday asked supporters for patience on the announcement as to who would be her 12th senatorial bet for the 2022 elections.

Ibarra Gutierrez, Robredo’s spokesperson, said they are still making the necessary evaluation in the selection for their final senatorial slate.

“Just wait. We will announce one other candidate. At this point, it will be hard to preempt things. Some people are saying… as if it is already final. Isn’t it? Let us wait,” he said.

“We understand the strong feelings of our supporters and the other groups that their names of choice be included in the slate of Vice President Leni,” he noted.

Four or five other candidates are being considered for the 12th spot, he said.

“Thank you but please have a little patience because the process is still going on. There are a lot of people being talked to and at the right time. When the due time comes that we have arrived at a decision, we will announce the issue,” he said.

Meanwhile, Gutierrez claimed that Cebu Vice Gov. Hilario Davide III is backing Robredo’s presidential bid.
