Vice President Leni Robredo's daughter, Tricia, told her mother's grief-stricken supporters that "we'll be alright" after an unofficial count of nearly all the votes on May 9 pointed to a landslide win by their opponent.

"We had to soldier on – dahil maraming umaasa at may mga laban na kailangang ilaban. Hindi nawala ang sakit pero mas lalong hindi nawala ang pagmamahal. Kaya nagpatuloy," she said.

"Kaya anuman ang maging resulta at anuman ang mangyari, taas noo. Hindi dapat ikahiya ang isang pusong pagod at sugatan."
