Kris Aquino Endorses Leni Robredo: Like PNoy, She Will Not Steal

Kris Aquino endorsed Leni Robredo for president during a campaign rally in her home province of Tarlac late Wednesday, saying that like her brother, the late President Noynoy Aquino, the only woman in the presidential race would not steal from public coffers.

Vice President Robredo, like the late former president is for "matuwid na daan (straight and narrow path)", Kris said, with her sisters Ballsy, Pinky, and Viel also attending the rally.

"I'm going and nobody can stop me," the youngest of the Aquino sisters told an estimated 50,000 people clad in pink. Health troubles has largely kept her out of the public eye save for occassional updates on Instagram.

Comparing the late president to Robredo, Kris said: "Number 1, kahit na kung ano-ano na ang binabato, hindi pumapatol. Number 2, hindi pa-picture nang pa-picture lang. Number 3, na pinakaimportante, sigurado ako na kagaya ni Noy, matuwid na daan dahil hindi nanakawin ang pera ninyo dahil nakita ko po kung gaano kasimple siya."

Kris said her brother once wrote to Robredo to say that the vice president has the "sincerity at 'yung ability na unahin ang mga tao bago sarili.

"Alam n'yo po, nung nabasa ko 'yun, sinabi ko sa sarili ko, 'You have to fight for her dahil sa kanya bilib si Noy.'"

A solo parent like Robredo, Kris praised the Vice President for raising her three daughters well -- Aika, Tricia and Jillian.

"Lahat masisipag, 'yung tatlong daughters lahat sila magalang, madasalin, meron po siyang magiging doctor, merong isa na naka-scholarship sa New York, 'yung oldest po nag-masters pa sa Harvard, hindi peke!"

Kris also paid tribute to Robredo's late husband, Jesse, whom she said took care of her during her brother's presidential campaign.

"Naniniwala kasi ako na kung sino 'yung sinuportahan mo mula sa umpisa hanggang sa dulo dapat nandoon ka," Kris said.

"I said, for my dad, the Filipino is worth dying for. Para po sa akin, ang umapak dito sa Tarlac is worth all the risk dahil kailangan ko pong magpasalamat. Hindi n'yo kami iniwan, hindi n'yo kami pinabayaan."

Kris thanked those who wished for her healing. "Of course para sa inyo, para sa kanilang dalawa (Josh and Bimby) at para doon sa mga excited na mamatay ako, siyempre lalaban."

"Nakikiusap po akoHuwag tayong pumayag na mawala itong muli. Ipaglaban po natin ang ating karapatan na never nang bumalik ang diktadura," she said.
