Saying that the country’s situation is “not normal” anymore, the clergy of the Infanta prelature announced support for presidential hopeful Leni Robredo and running mate Kiko Pangilinan.

Explaining their decision in a statement on March 25, they stressed that it’s their duty as Filipinos and God’s disciples “to ensure the future of youth and future generations”.

The priests said their support for Robredo and Pangilinan is a fight “against stealing, distortion of truth and exploitation of the weak”.

“We, the priests of the Prelature of Infanta, are convinced that we will vote for Leni and Kiko, to uplift our country towards an abundant Philippines,” they said.

Their vote for the tandem, they added, is also “for the future of all, especially those in the fringes of our society”.

The priests also said that Robredo has the capacity to lead the country, and noted how the presidential aspirant lawyered for the oppressed for free.
