Netizens praise Diokno for killer answer vs Marcos
Netizens couldn’t help praising human rights abogado Chel Diokno’s brilliant response to fellow senatorial aspirant Imee Marcos during last weekend’s debate.
The two were asked whether they are in favor of removing term limits to elected officials.
Imee said yes because, she said, “nagiging prangkisa ang apelyido” and the position can easily be passed to the next family member.
But Diokno said no. He explained: “Hindi pa ba kayo nadala sa nangyari sa atin nung martial law. Nakalimutan na ba natin ang ating kasaysayan? Meron tayon isang pangulo na naging diktador para maiwasan ang term limits.”
