By: Elena Grace Flores It is not clear yet why Atty. Glenn Chong joins only during the last quarter of the CNN Debate. He supports the administration of President Rodrigo Du30. Chong has an alliance with the Marcoses as well after he testifies against Smartmatic and the Comelec. The long delay of his appearance allows General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa to shine as the lone, very vocal defender of President Rodrigo Du30. He displays the personality that appeals greatly to the Filipino masses. Bato also speaks from experiences rather than theories.

About Atty. Glenn Chong as per CNN
The fierce clean election advocate, Atty. Glenn Chong is controversially known for his electoral reform calls. He criticizes the automated elections system. He wants a hybrid process that combines a manual polling system and a digital one. This is to avoid possible cheating in poll results. Chong’s supporters are not happy on the recent magic 12 survey that excludes him.
The Election 2019 Contenders Present
CNN gathers pro and anti government personalities during the recent senatorial debate. Aside from Ronald dela Rosa, Glenn Chong, Raffy Alunan, and JV Ejercito are in harmony with the Du30 administration. The rest are known to be critical to the current government. They are; Romulo Macalintal, Florin Hilbay, Samira Gutoc, Chel Diokno, Neri Colmenares, Gary Alejano, and Erin Tañada.
Bato’s LectureGeneral Bato urges the noisy audience to keep quiet and listen to him. He tells them not to blame President Du30 with regards to China. It is because the problems with the South China Sea happens during the time of former President Benigno Aquino III, Otso Diretso’s party influence. He takes the liberty to invite them to go with him to face the Chinese in the disputed seas. Bato promises to equip volunteers with guns if they are insistent.
The Chinese Influx into the Country
The opposition slate is quick enough to criticize the Du30 administration for allowing many Chinese to allegedly steal the jobs of Filipinos. Pro-administration, Alunan wishes for Filipinos to consider being proficient in the Chinese language also to fulfill the demands of Chinese investors. Ejercito agrees to regulate illegal entries of these foreigners into the country.
Chong’s Choice is the Philippines
It is heartfelt for Chong to say that he does not have a choice when it comes to his family name. However, he chooses to be Filipino because he feels for the people. Intermarriages between Filipinos and Chinese nationals are already common since time immemorial. Filipino-Chinese people are still Filipinos.
