Vice President and presidential candidate Leni Robredo will officially kick-off her campaign for the presidency in her home province of Camarines Sur.

Robredo said that it is only right to launch her campaign in Camarines Sur since the province has been her safe place and refuge during difficulties.

“Sa mga Bikolano lagi akong nagpapasalamat kasi— ako dito ako pinanganak, dito ako lumaki, dito ako nag-asawa. ‘Yung mga anak ko lahat dito pinanganak. ‘Yung mga anak ko dito nag-aral, pumunta ng Maynila ‘yung dalawa for college and si Jillian lumipat noong high school, pero dito talaga kami,” she said on Sunday. 

“So, sa akin, laging kahit anong kaguluhan na pinagdadaanan ko, ‘pag nandito ako, nakakalimutan ko ‘yun lahat dahil ano ako, among people who love me the most. Kaya ako nagpapasalamat sa kanila. Iniimbitahan ko din sila sa kick-off. Magkakaroon tayo ng motorcade all over Camarines Sur sa February 8,” she added.

Her tentative schedule includes a tour of Camarines Sur towns like Libmanan, Calabanga, and Goa.

The tour will end in a proclamation rally at 5 p.m. in Naga City. 

Members of her senatorial slate are also expected to join the event. Ronald Espartinez
