Kris on election

Three days before the election, Kris appealed to Commission on Election (Comelec) to push through with the election on Monday, May 10.

In her tweet, Kris also said Comelec should also prepare for manual count.

She also urged all Filipinos to unite and help ensure the credibility of the democratic exercise.

"Panawagan sa taumbayan ni Noynoy Aquino:1. Dapat ituloy ng Comelec ang eleksiyon sa May 10! 2. Kailangan nang maghanda ang Comelec para sa manual count; 3) Kailangan makipag-ugnayan lahat na kandidato upang mapagtulungan ang full manual process. Bayan, magkaisa at manindigan! Ipaglaban natinang demokrasya!," Kris said.

Kris has taken a leave in her ABS-CBN's shows, including SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon, The Buzz, and her series "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo."
