Iba ang Batangueño! Ralph Recto, Vilma Santos endorse Chel Diokno

Feb 19, 2019 @ 9:19

Human rights lawyer Chel Diokno’s senatorial bid has gotten a big boost with the endorsement he received from Senator Ralph Recto and his wife, Batangas Representative Vilma Santos-Recto.

Batangas’ power couple asked their province mates to support Diokno’s candidacy at a post Valentine’s day concert dubbed, as Lipa Love Fest, in Lipa on February 16.

Some 25,000 Batanguenos attended the concert and heard Diokno discuss his platform.

Generations of Dioknos hail from Batangas: Gen. Ananias Diokno, who fought in the revolution; his son, Ramon, who became senator and Supreme Court Justice; and Ramon’s son, Jose ‘Pepe’, a senator and human rights lawyer.

Chel is aiming to be the third Diokno to have a seat in the Senate as part of the “Otso Diretso” slate.
