In her post, she included a somber photo of a younger version of her father, behind bars during Martial Law.
An article from Inquirer by Christine Avendaño, published on Oct. 8, 2015, noted how Arroyo became a victim of Martial Law simply because he was among the freedom fighters who opposed the government.
"As a freedom fighter, Arroyo had his share of physical and mental tortures during martial law. He was incarcerated in a military stockade; he was also gassed, injured and hospitalized during protest rallies," a snippet from the article stated.
As of writing, the partial unofficial results showed Bongbong Marcos leading the presidential race with approximately 30M votes.
Vice President Leni Robredo is at second place with more than 14M votes.
VP Leni Robredo is the incumbent vice president of the Philippines. She is a human rights lawyer. Her husband was the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo. They have three daughters, namely, Aika, Patricia, and Jillian.
In a previous report, VP Leni Robredo turned emotional when Vice Ganda sang Rosas on stage during the miting de avance in Makati. A zoomed-in video of VP Leni showed tears freely flowing down her cheeks. All the while, she was smiling and singing along. The miting de avance was the culmination of the 3-month campaign prior to the May 9 elections.
The crowd estimate at the miting de avance of VP Leni and Sen. Kiko in Naga as of 8:30 p.m. was at 306,000. This estimate was given by the Incident Management Team. Earlier, it was estimated to be at 210,000 at around 7:30 p.m., while before 6 p.m., it was estimated to be at 168,000. The Naga rally is considered the second biggest in number.
