MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo said Friday that while her lines remain open to other political players, she is no longer interested in closing ranks with non-administration politicians as she pursues a different strategy for unity after announcing her presidential bid.


“The focus now is not to unite the principals, but the people,” Robredo said in Filipino at a press conference. “It is not needed for us politicians to unite, but what is the most important is to give an alternative to a majority of the people where they can dream and feel hope again.”


Robredo’s unity talks previously focused on forging unity among non-administration politicians in the hopes of building a single ticket that would go head-to-head with and defeat President Rodrigo Duterte’s anointed bets.
