Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 5) - Vice President Leni Robredo, who has yet to bare her decision for the 2022 elections, will make an "important announcement" on Thursday, Oct. 7, according to her spokesperson.

On Tuesday, Atty. Barry Gutierrez said the announcement will be made at 11 a.m. at the Quezon City Reception House.

Last week, opposition coalition 1Sambayan endorsed Robredo as its presidential bet for next year's polls, but she has neither accepted nor declined the nomination.

Over the weekend, Robredo's spokesperson also appealed for the public's patience as she finalizes her decision. Once the Vice President makes a commitment, she will remain firm with it, Gutierrez added.

The deadline of the filing of certificates of candidacy is on Oct. 8.

Robredo earlier told CNN Philippines she is looking at bigger factors besides just numbers in deciding on her election plans. She had also engaged in talks with other potential candidates in a bid to unite the opposition.
