Vice President Leni Robredo sat down with popular TV host Vice Ganda in a one-on-one interview where she explained how her win in the May 9 elections would be a victory for all Filipinos, regardless of their color or political background.

In her YouTube vlog uploaded on Tuesday, Vice asked the vice president how she can assure that the public will be better off if she wins the elections. The TV host earlier formally endorsed Robredo for president during her birthday rally in Pasay City.

Robredo admitted that while she gets goosebumps when making such a promise, it's a matter that can be seen with how she led in the last six years.

"Tignan kung paano ko ginamit yung aking kapangyarihan. Kasi makikita nila na all my life, talagang mahirap yung pinagsilbihan ko," he said.

Her assurance, Robredo added, is her track record of honest and transparent governance.

"Nung binigyan ba kami ng pagkakataon mamuno, anong klase ang pamumuno namin? Yumaman ba kami sa pwesto? Marangya ba yung aming buhay? Yung mga programa ba namin nakabuti sa mga mahihirap," she said.

"Makikita naman nila sa pamumuhay ko, talagang walang-wala. At ang SALN ko, ako lang yan ang nagme-make public nun," she even said when asked if she became richer after she was elected vice president.

Robredo warned the public against patronage politics, which happens when people appear to owe a "debt" to politicians after being given small forms of assistance.

"Masusukat mo kung okay yung pulitiko kapag hindi mo na kailangang lumapit sa kanya kasi may programa na siya for that," she said.

"Kapag ang premise na utang na loob, kapag nakaupo na, wala akong utang sayo na serbisyo, kasi binibigyan lang naman kita. Yun ang masama sa pulitika natin," she said.

If she becomes president, Robredo said she would lead to serve, and not to earn.

"Ang assurance ko, parati nila akong makikita sa mga communities. Number two, ang assurance ko sa mga negosyante ay level playing field at malinis na pamahalaan para happy silang nagnenegosyo. Pero ang hihingiin ko naman sa kanila in return, yung pag-aasikaso sa mga mahihirap," she added.

Vice is just one of the many celebrities who endorsed Robredo for president, which also include Angel Locsin, Piolo Pascual, Nadine Lustre, and even beauty queens Pia Wurtzbach and Catriona Gray.
