Robredo returns to Naga with grateful heart

Naga City (CNN Philippines) — It's not yet a victory homecoming. But it appears, Rep. Leni Robredo's fellow Bicolanos can no longer wait for the official proclamation.

This as they welcomed their new "vice president," who, as she usually did, arrived on a public bus on Tuesday (May 17).

Robredo said that she wanted to let the people feel that she had not changed, even if she was now given a bigger responsibility in government.

Her first stop: her house in Naga City.

There laid memories of her late husband, former Secretary Jesse Robredo.

And as she always did everytime she came, she visited her husband's grave.

She said she felt her husband was with her through her journey to the vice presidency.

But that journey is not without controversy.

Sen. Bongbong Marcos remained bent on proving the figures were  wrong and that he should be winning the VP race.

Robredo said she wouldn't even stop Marcos from filing a case before an electoral tribunal.

But she added that if she had her way, it would be better to just move on and face the pile of work ahead.

She's also unfazed by Marcos' counsel, Sixto Brillantes, who said he had evidence of cheating.
