Aksyon Demokratiko standard bearer and presidential bet Francisco “Isko” Moreno said he fully respects the decision of Maguindanao Governor Toto Mangudadatu to support another presidential candidate.

In February, Mangudadatu and his family hosted Moreno and his senatorial slate for campaign activities. They supported the Moreno-Duterte tandem.

“I fully support and understand him. That’s how you understand your people. People change their mind. In the likes of what we’re doing right now, baka mag bago ang isip ng iba,” Moreno said.

“Sabi ko nga sa inyo, matigas man ang bulalo, lalambot din ito,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) Chief Minister Ahod Balawag “Murad” Ebrahim and his United Bangsamoro Justice Party officialy endorsed Vice President Leni Robredo’s presidential bid on her birthday. 

Moreno was asked if he knew the endorsement ahead of time, he said, “yes.”

“Disenteng mama ‘yun eh. Mga disente ‘yun eh,” he said.

However, he didn’t give the reason given by Mangudadatu.

“Ano lang, it’s between us, and I fully respect. That’s how you look at your people. You understand your people,” he said — Ronald Espartinez
