Former Interior chief Mar Roxas has one wish when he turns 62 years old on May 13, which will be the Election Day; that Cebuanos would vote for him as well as other members of Otso Diretso.

In a campaign sortie at the Plaza Independencia in Cebu City on Sunday, April 28, Roxas said it seems fate that his 62nd birthday to fall on the same day as the midterm elections.

"Si Mar Roxas, 'pinanganak Mayo 13, 1957. Parang nasa tadhana na, 'di ba? Puwede bang i-birthday [gift] 'nyo na sa akin ang inyong boto? Pupuwede?" Roxas asked the people who attended the gathering.

"Eh papaano ang Otso Diretso, kasama ba sila? So 8 birthday [gifts] 'yan, puwede? Puwedeng-puwede” he added

The Cebu event marks the second time that Otso Diretso slate was complete on the campaign trail after Naga City last February.

Other Otso Diretso candidates which make up the slate are;  former Bangsamoro civic leader Samira Gutoc, former Quezon Rep. Erin TaƱada, former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay, abogados Chel Diokno and Romulo Macalintal, and Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano.

Among other members of the Otso Diretso slate, Roxas is considered to be the most veteran.
