Vice President Leni Robredo’s camp is hoping for at least half a million people to join their miting de avance in Makati City on May 7.

Lawyer Barry Gutierrez, Robredo’s spokesman, said they are expecting more attendees than the Vice President’s grand rally in Pasay City last April 23. The rally had 400,000 participants, which also coincided with Robredo’s birthday. 

“We expect that this will be more. Conservatively, I think the campaign is banking on at least half a million although some are saying we can easily hit a million attendees to the Saturday miting de avance in NCR,” he said in an interview at the ABS-CBN News Channel.

Robredo has visited almost all provinces in the country. She is ramping up her sorties as the campaign period will end on Saturday. 

Gutierrez added that the activities on this final week is a “series of mini miting de avance leading up to the final big event” in Makati City on May 7. — Ronald Espartinez
