She also said she was proud of how she ran her campaign.
“Hindi man po natin naipanalo ang labang ito, taas-noo pa rin po nating maipagmamalaki na pinairal natin ang prinsipyo sa ating mga kilos at sa paggawa ng mga bagay na naaayon sa paraang tama at patas,” she said.
She would continue to help the people, she added.
