By: Elena Grace Flores Atty. Glenn Chong, the tiger of Biliran becomes fiercer when he was excluded in the recent GMA 7 debate. He swears to file a case on election discrimination if the network refuses to do the second round for the rest of the candidates for senator in the upcoming 2019 elections. Chong’s strategy for a landslide win that would be difficult for Smartmatic to manipulate involves not only social presence and organic website traffic but also physical counts. In almost all of Atty. Chong’s platforms, he also campaigns for Gov. Imee Marcos, the sister of Bongbong Marcos who is an obvious victim of electoral frauds in 2016 during the Vice Presidential race. z

Campaigning for Imee Marcos
Smartmatic’s connivance with the mainstream media and survey firms is not working. Mind-conditioning through these networks cannot surpass the initiatives of the common people. Chong, however, continues to become popular. He gains sympathy nationwide and overseas after his close aide’s alleged murder by police scalawags. The Marcos loyalist groups alone with the mechanism of National Alliance of Philippine Federalism, Inc. can already assure him of sure votes. In return, his mention of Gov. Imee Marcos in most of his campaigns online and offline is evident. His speeches during tours in Mindanao, particularly in Davao City and Camiguin also did not fail to mention the governor. Plus social media endorsements are rampant for #IMEESOLUSYON.
Gov. Marcos posts on her social media pages an ad or her major television network campaign. Marcos tells viewers that the solution is in the rice fields. She suggests giving farmers enough seeds as well as proper equipment and irrigation. Marcos also says farmers deserve to be paid higher for their harvest. A lot of people have opinions. We have solutions. We got this,” says Marcos as the hashtag #ImeeSolusyon flashes on-screen. Atty. Chong supports the governor’s idealism all the way.
The Golden Age vs. Martial Law Atrocities
Every election, the Marcos Golden Era versus Martial Law Atrocities debate comes to life again even after more than 30 years of the fall of the late President Ferdinand Marcos who is a victim of black media propaganda. He has done so much for the country that most of his projects still exist to serve the people. His children remain popular in the hearts of most Filipinos. However, the descendants of the activists, rebels, and outlaws have different versions.
Supporting President Du30
The only way that the Golden Era surmises again is for the many alliances that made President Du30’s victory during the 2016 elections to unite always. This is why the detractors have to work hard in creating issues via social media that would divide supporters. Chong made sure that even if he runs for the same position, he would beat the enemies alongside Imee Marcos.
The clean election advocate attorney is thankful for the social media survey. He ranks 4 for popularity, virality is 6, social competitive is 2 or to have the chance to win, his capacity to turn followers into actual votes is 28. According to Chong, his rating on the latter does not reflect the real status of his current standing because he does not disclose his strategy so as not to alert the competitors vying for the same seat. In fairness to GMA, it explains to Chong that they limit their choice to the top 40 senatorial candidates based on a non-commissioned survey. Chong enlightens them that according to the law, the network must have fair and equal time to the rest of the 21 bets to provide a fair chance. He challenges survey organizers as well to call on a gathering and see who has more followers. As for GMA, the second round of debate is a must or else, a case will be filed accordingly.
