A photo of Kiko Pangilinan looking on in the background while an LGU executive raised the hand of Leni Robredo has left this netizen wondering what kind of leader Leni Robredo would be.
If you are look at the photo below, the woman raising Leni Robredo’s hand is Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco. Climaco is promoting RoSa (Robredo-Sara) tandem to her Zamboanga constituents.
Chu, who is not a BBM fan, can’t help but watch the BBM-Sara tandem in awe for presenting themselves as a team – a strong message to the voters that “you won’t get me if you won’t get her and vice versa.” This is what the voters are seeing and they are embracing it. The public see this as teamwork and understand that unity is not just some platform, it’s a prerequisite in our leaders so the public don’t have a sense of de javu of Duterte-Robredo.
However, Chu noted that this is not the case of the Leni-Kiko tandem. The fact that Leni did not react or told the LGU execs who are pairing her with Sara to stop it says a lot about her person. How can she ask people to trust Kiko when she herself is willing to leave him behind? Chu asked.
You may now read Chu’s original FB post below.
Even when I’m not a fan of BBM, I admire the way he and Mayor Sara always present themselves as a team—it’s a solid message of “you won’t get me if you won’t get her, you won’t get her if you won’t get me.” Many voters repeatedly see this messaging and we take it to heart. We see teamwork—and we understand that unity is not just some platform, it’s a requirement in our leaders so we don’t have a repeat of Duterte-Robredo. It’s an oft-repeated message—we are partners.
What kind of leader would Leni be, to leave Kiko at the back like that as she faces the crowd with whichever LGU official raises her hand? Why not pull him so he is on the other side instead of pathetically looking on? He’s not some Senatorial candidate—he’s her partner. How can she ask people to trust him when she herself is willing to leave him behind?
These are some of the little, commonsensical things that very few notice about Leni’s “caliber” of leadership. PS: Yes I have more photos not just this one, of Leni leaving Kiko behind.
