Attorney Glenn Chong answers the Chiefs directly when asked why he has to run for a Senate post when the competition is already very tough. He can actually do much better in the House of Representatives, they said. However, Chong discloses that he is already very tired of convincing people about his clean election advocacy. If he loses, then it would be a way out for him. Otherwise, he can gain more influence if the people support him. z

[VIDEO]: Chong: It doesn’t matter if I lose
Sincerity Counts in Winning
Former Biliran Rep. Glenn Chong says that he will run during the midterm elections and it doesn’t matter if he loses. He also reveals how the people saw his sincerity through the letters he gave out in the 2007 elections. Chong has shown in many appearances that he is willing to give up his life for his good intention for the country.
Social Media Supresses the Fighting Attorney
It is very obvious through Facebook that anything related to the quest of the fighting attorney faces many restrictions at Facebook and other social media outlets. The accounts of his supporters who are mainly pro-Marcos and Du30 voters are limited to the very minimal number of postings. However, some campaigns to discredit him are still visible online. This can also be a part of the social media’s anti-spam drive.
Bongbong Marcos’ Silence
It is observed that Bongbong Marcos never said a word about Attorney Chong’s plight. He earlier confirmed that the election lawyer is not part of his legal team as per the plea of Chong himself. Chong’s revelations about the 2016 poll fraud coincides with the electoral protest of Marcos against the presumptive Vice President Leni Robredo
Senate Bid Falls Into Place
As Chong tries to finalize his candidacy, his infrastructure in the Congress did not materialize. Contrary to that, all of his Senate push preparation push through. This is the reason why he thinks that it’s the will of God for him to run for Senator, win or lose. Winning is not his goal but to go further than the crossroad he’s facing.
Way Out or Way In
For Attorney Chong, it’s only the people who can decide for him to take an exit from his fight with the Comelec and Smartmatic or move forward. Should he win, he can have an edge as a legislator to ensure the country’s honest election. He vows to make sure that all votes will be counted properly. There should be no agency that manipulates the will of the people as to who would lead the country.
