Unti-unting umaangat! Chel Diokno inspired to work hard despite failure to enter ‘Magic 12’

Mar 20, 2019 @ 12:50

Human rights lawyer Chel Diokno is encouraged by his rising ranking in a pre-election survey even though he has yet to break into the so-called “Magic 12.”

The latest Pulse Asia survey, conducted from February 24 to 28, showed Diokno’s ranking between 22 and 27.

In September 2018—a month before Diokno filed his candidacy—he ranked well below in the 44-62 range in a survey from the same polling firm. Diokno improved to the 26-35 range in December 2018, and then to the 24-31 range in January 2019.

“Ako’y natutuwa sa pag-angat natin sa survey. Little by little pero kayod lang nang kayod,” Diokno said. “Ako’y very upbeat at optimistic sa mga nagiging resulta ng survey.”

The lawyer, who is running for senator as part of the opposition Otso Diretso slate, said he will work harder to reach more voters.

“Doble lang ang kayod,” Diokno said. “Very encouraging sa akin ang results at talagang it inspires me to just do more and more.”
