Torre, for his part, said: “Truth shall prevail, justice shall prevail. Ma’am Leila para sa Senado.”

Isidro reminded De Lima that “I’m always with you, beside you, behind you, in front of you. I am with you in this battle. Ipapanalo ka namin, Sen. Leila. Number 18 is in top of my 12 Senators.”

Valdez thanked De Lima for all her efforts to help improved the plight of Filipinos, including the poor and senior citizens.

Gusto ko lang pong magpasalamat sa inyo, sa pakikipaglaban ninyo para sa mga mahihirap, nasa laylayan at lalong lalo na para sa mga senior citizen. Maraming maraming salamat po. Lalaban tayo, ilalaban namin kayo para nasa Senado pa rin kayo. God Bless you always po,” she said.
