Pinasalamatan ni Manila Mayor Isko Moreno ang bumubuo sa pamunuan ng 1Sambayan dahil napipisil siya bilang kandidato. Ayon sa alkalde, ayaw daw muna niyang isipin ang politika.
“I am honored and thankful to the organizing committee for giving me such honor to be included in the list na pwede nilang makonsider…I am just thankful and I don’t want to entertain anymore any politics for now. I think there will be time for everything,” sabi ni Isko.
Ang 1Sambayan ay koalisyon na binuo ng iba’t-ibang grupo. Layon nito na pagkaisahin ang oposisyon para sa halalan 2022. Katakdang mamili ang grupo ng mga kandidato para sa presidente at bise presidente. Ilan pa sa mga pinagpipilian ng grupo ay sina former senator Antonio Trillanes, Senadora Grace Poe, Senadora Nancy Binay at Vice President Leni Robredo.
Isa sa mga kilalang personlidad na bumuo sa 1Sambayan ay si retired Supreme Court Justice Antonio Carpio.
“We are prepared to accept suggestions and nominations from everyone. So we are not foreclosing the candidates that we will consider and we will go through the process… All those who have joined the coalition have agreed to respect the decision of the convenors on who will be the candidates of the democratic forces… This is the understanding of everybody that unless we are united we cannot win in 2022… It’s important to have a very viable candidate. It’s important to remain united. Once the contributors see this, they will be there to support… The Filipino people deserve a better government… There are Filipino leaders who can do a much better job of running the government, reviving the economy, creating jobs for our people, and defending our territory and sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea.,” sabi ni Carpio.
