Vice President Leni Robredo’s daughters went to social media to express their views following the impending defeat of all “Otso Diretso” senatorial candidates.
Aika and Tricia, both took to Twitter their unwavering support for their mother who had been campaigning for the opposition slate.
Aika retweeted her mother’s message that read: “Pagod man tayong lahat sa kampanya at sa mahabang araw kahapon, sulit ang lahat dahil pinanindigan natin ang ating mga prinsipyo at paniniwala. May laban pa tayong hinaharap. Hindi pa tapos ang bilangan, at kailangan pang bantayan.”
“Ipinamalas ng ating mga kandidato at volunteers ang tapang at dedikasyon sa ating adhikain. Huwag natin ito bitawan. Paghugutan natin ng lakas ang bawat isa. Marami pa tayong kailangan gawin at marami pa tayong magagawa. Hanggang sa huli, sama-sama tayo sa labang ito,” it added.
The eldest daughter captioned her post Monday with a Philippine flag emoji at the end: “Always the light and the voice of reason. We soldier on. Taas noo.”

Meanwhile, Tricia posted on Tuesday a screenshot of Leni’s comment that read: “We’re made for times like this, anak” with yet another Philippine flag emoji.
“Spent a substantial amount of today worrying about you as well, only to realize that I didn’t have to. Tougher times ahead but with you through and through,” Tricia said.
