By: Elena Grace Flores Atty. Glenn Chong, one of the hottest faces to run for a Senate seat this 2019 election explains during an interview his affiliations with Bongbong Marcos. It happens that he asks Atty. George Garcia to include his name in the list of attorneys for Marcos’ defense team to prove a technical anomaly of Smartmatic. However, he never shows up during interpolations to protect Marcos. Therefore, he insists that he is not one of his electoral protest lawyers against the presumptive Vice President, Leni Robredo. z

2016 Transmission Anomalies/h3>
Chong points out 459 precincts already transmit their results that generate at least 220,000 votes before the election which are substantial enough for Robredo’s win. In the future, he recommends that if there’s a hybrid system with manual voting and counting, the physical counts are already in the precincts’ record. These can then be the basis for the digital transmissions should there be suspicious trends like in Robredo’s case.
Atty. Glenn Chong Needs to be a Senator
Chong confirms bluntly that he needs to be a Senator to be able to defeat the cheaters during elections. He would have his own legal forums and authority to defend his stand on clean election systems. As a private person, the mechanisms are limited to flourish his idealism to protect the people’s votes. He swears to realize this promise when elected.
Breaking his Spirit on Aide’s Murder
150 million is hilarious to be paid by a syndicate just to break Glenn Chong’s spirit according to the interviewer. She made it sound bizarre that someone actually would pay that to discourage a guy like Chong. He answers with the utmost composure saying that he’s noisy. Perhaps a pain in the neck for the election manipulators. Chong believes that Richard Santillan’s case was meant to scare him in pursuing his advocacy.
Political Platform Supported by Data
The anti-poverty projects of Glenn Chong follow the 3 foundations of health, education, and transportation. Poverty incidence in Biliran in 2007 was 65% but immediately drops to 30% after Chong left in just 3 years. He addresses the anchor’s question with legitimate data that cannot be contested.
Bongbong Marcos Support is Coincidental
Chong did not intend to protect Bongbong Marcos for his electoral protest fight but his concrete findings on Smartmatic’s anomalies put a lot of weight on Marcos’ case. Besides, he has a very effective online and offline systems that encourage common people to take part in his campaigns. Filipinos definitely need a Senator like him.
