Preparations are underway for the People’s Rally to welcome presidential candidate, Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Kiko Pangilinan in Negros Occidental on March 11.
Robredo People’s Council provincial chair, former Gov. Rafael Coscolluela, said in a press release Wednesday, March 2, that the grand rally will be at the Paglaum Stadium in Bacolod.
“Paglaum is quite symbolic because it means hope and for Negrenses, VP Leni has been our symbol of hope and this rally will revolve around that message, of what she stands for, for our people.”
“We are expecting a huge crowd to show VP Leni that indeed, Negros Occidental will go pink come May 9 elections,” Coscolluela said. He added that “while others may claim they have the support of the majority of our officials, we will show them that the people’s hearts are with VP Leni.”
Coscolluela also thanked Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson for his support to Robredo.
“Definitely, we are counting on Gov. Bong join us in the grand rally,” he said, adding that some actors and entertainers who are from Bacolod have expressed their willingness to take part in the grand rally and “we are just happy with the overwhelming support we are getting from everyone.”
“There is this frenzy of volunteerism among VP Leni supporters that you will never see in other presidential campaigns. Our pink warriors have been offering help in whatever way they can and that is the essence of this people’s rally – it is for the people and by the people,” Coscolluela said.*
