"First Darna" Iza Calzado refers to VP Leni as a real leader

Actress Iza Calzado, who will play the first Darna in the said superhero TV series, lauded Vice President Leni Robredo for always being present during times of crisis, saying Filipinos should choose a leader like her over somebody who is constantly absent during calamities. 

Obviously referring to her screen alter ego whose power emanates from a stone, Iza stated: “Kanino ba dapat ipasa ang bato? Sana sa isang taong nagpapakita at nararamdaman, eleksyon man o hindi. Hanggang sa pinakamalayong kanayunan. Hindi kailangang maging isang superhero, pero sana ‘yung kasama natin sa kahit na anong krisis sa buhay,” Calzado said in a video message.

As a Bicolana like VP Leni, Iza said they are used to being hit by typhoons every year but they remain firm, thanks to their leaders who are always there to provide immediate assistance.

“Alam n'yo ang sikreto ng aming pagiging matibay? Ang pagboto namin sa mga opisyal na mabilis sumaklolo, yung laging may handang plano, at kasama namin sa kahit na anong delubyo,” said Iza.

She added that a true leader has a good heart and should serve as inspiration for others to unite and help other people during times of need.

“Nagiging inspirasyon siya para totoong lumabas ang pagkakaisa at kabutihan ng mga tao. Nagiging lakas siya para sabay-sabay tayo na hindi lang bumangon, kundi kumilos at tumulong,” Iza said.

“‘Yan ang Pilipinas na pangarap ko. ‘Yan ang Pilipinas na masarap mahalin! At alam niyo naman, “in love, there is no fear,” she added.

Among the presidential candidates, Iza said Leni is the only one who has manifested her love for the country and the Filipino people, not only through words but also in deeds.

“Sa lahat ng tumatakbo, walang nagmamahal sa Pilipino gaya ng pagmamahal ni Leni Robredo. Si Leni Robredo ang presidente ko,” she ended.

Iza recently joined VP Leni's campaign rally in Davao del Sur where she had an emotional meeting with the Vice President.
