VP Robredo lauds senatorial bet Chel Diokno for impressive debate performance
Vice President Leni Robredo is the main endorser of the eight opposition senatorial candidates, and she was definitely impressed with the debate performance of human rights lawyer Chel Diokno.
In a Facebook post, Robredo shared a link to Diokno’s performance in a TV debate where he was pitted against the late dictator’s daughter Imee Marcos.
Robredo said Diokno answered simply and well, and he was calm and solid in his principles.
In the show, the two candidates were asked if they favored term limits. Marcos said yes, while Diokno answered in the negative, pointing to Ferdinand Marcos’ declaration of martial law to establish a dictatorship and skirt term limits.
During all that time, added Diokno, the Marcoses looted the country’s coffers, as declared by the Supreme Court. His answer garnered loud applause.
Talk about a burn! No wonder the VP was impressed!
“Parating namamangha kay Atty Chel Diokno. Simple, kalmado, mahusay at solid ang paninidigan, bali baliktarin mo man ang mundo.
And he did not disappoint in last night’s debate💛,” Robredo posted on Facebook.
