Presidential candidate and former Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales stated there isn’t a assurance that Vice President Leni Robredo will win towards former Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. if different presidential candidates withdraw from the May 9 polls.
Gonzales underscored the necessity to appropriate the notion that Robredo can win towards Marcos in a one-on-one presidential combat.
“Nung ako’y kinakausap na mag-withdraw I tried to explain to those convincing me na flawed yung kanilang sinasabi sa sakin. Hindi totoo na kapag kaming lahat nag-withdraw, kahit na i-endorse pa namin si Vice President ay doon pupunta yung mga botanteng nagsusuporta sa amin. That does not happen in reality,” Gonzales stated.
He defined that the actual state of affairs is just not a easy addition the place the votes of those that will withdraw will all go to Robredo.
“Magbabago siguro yung porsyento na nasa kanila, pero yung sasabihin mo na kumampi ka na sa amin tapos eh ako ang mananalo kasi i-a-add mo lang yung ilan yung boto ni Ping Lacson, boto ko, boto ni Isko i-a-add mo dun sa boto ng gusto mong puntahan sa katotohanan hindi ganyan ang nangyayari,” Gonzales added.
If a candidate withdraws from the presidential race, Gonzales stated it might solely free his supporters however not essentially imply that it’s going to go to a selected candidate.
“Kaya sinasabi ko hindi yan valid na argument na kapag may umalis ay doon pupunta sa isa,” he pressured.
Gonzales, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, and Sen. Panfilo Lacson earlier stated that the camp of Robredo wished them to withdraw from the race.
