I have no ambition to run for president in 2022 - Leni Robredo

I have “no ambition” to run for president next presidential elections.
In a speaking engagement in Mandaluyong city, she reiterated what she has been telling the people- that she has no ambition of becoming president of this country.

"Wala naman akong ambisyon na after 2022, kakandidato akong pangulo. Wala naman ganoon. Para sa akin destiny lahat. Para sa akin, pag iyon ang nakatakda sa iyo, iyon ang mangyayari. Hindi mo dapat inaambisyon yan. At para sa akin, hindi naman ako nag ambisyon maging pangalawang pangulo," Robredo said. 

The Vice President said that there is a “greater purpose” to her being elected as such even without an ambition of becoming president or vice president of the country.
Robredo said that this belief was her way of coping up with what she calls  "so much hate and so much vilification" that she has received since she got elected as vice president in 2016.

"Maraming taong akala masama kang tao dahil sa nababasa nila. Is that something that I will allow na i-weigh down ang sarili? Hindi. Kasi hindi naman ako pumasok dito dahil sa ambisyon. Pumasok ako dito for a specific purpose," she said. 
That purpose is none other than- public service.
"Mayroong greater purpose lahat. Maraming galit sa 'yo, maraming sinisiraan ka, pero yung posisyon mo pwedeng gamitin para makatulong," she said. 
Currently the position of Vice President is being questioned in the Supreme Court by former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. for alleged massive election fraud.
Robredo lamented that if she can travel back in time, she would have stayed with the alternative lawyers' group Saligan (Sentro ng Alternatibong Lingap Pang Legal), where she worked for more than 10 years helping communities on legal matters.
