MANILA: Philippine Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo on Thursday filed her certificate of candidacy hours after she officially announced that she will run for president in the May 2022 elections.

Robredo, 56, submitted her certificate to the Commission on Elections with her daughters and left the poll body without telling the media who her running-mate will be.

"I will fight. We will fight. I offer myself as a candidate for the presidency in the 2022 elections," Robredo said in a news conference earlier.

The opposition coalition 1Sambayan endorsed Robredo to be its presidential candidate.

Robredo had delayed her announcement after trying to forge a united opposition slate with other presidential contenders, but her efforts failed.

Popularly known as Leni, Robredo was thrust into the national political spotlight after her husband, former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, died in a plane crash in 2012. She stepped into the political arena in 2013, when she won a seat in the House of Representatives.
