Videos: Blog Watch interview with VP candidate Leni Robredo

Read Part 1 : Leni Robredo’s trek to the vice president position : part 1

Snippets of our conversation:

“Programs should not be leader-centered. If you’re a leader, kahit wala ka na your programs should be institutionalized”

“For a very long time, masyadong Manila-centric or focused tayo sa major cities. Maraming hindi nabibigyan ng pagkakataon”

“The only Presidential candidate who, I am sure, will be supportive of my plans is Mar Roxas.

“I don’t think it will be beneficial for the country if the VP aspires to become the next President”

“I want to redefine the Vice President position. [Hindi siya spare tire. This is one chance, papalagpasin mo pa ba?]”

“Nagiging spare tire yung VP kapag naga-ambisyon na siya [maging Presidente]”

On rural development plans: “Walang maiiwan. Ngayon tayo magiging handa kasi may pera ang gobyerno”

“Ang pera ng gobyerno ay mas magagamit sa mas efficient na paraan”

“I’m looking into more inclusive and participatory kind of governance.”

“Good governance is not just transparency and accountability. Good governance is people empowerment”
