- Chel Diokno said that Sara Duterte-Carpio should not insult the Filipino voters
- Diokno added that he still believes that Filipinos will vote for candidates who do not tolerate liars
- Duterte-Carpio accused all of the candidates that they are “liars” just like everyone else
Human rights lawyer and Senate candidate Chel Diokno has reacted to the statement of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio that all the candidates and even all the people around the world are “liars.”
KAMI learned that Diokno advised Duterte-Carpio not to insult the Filipino voters by tolerating liars, as reported by Rappler.
"Sabi ni Sara Duterte, lahat daw ng kandidato sa eleksyong ito ay nagsisinungaling, kaya hindi daw dapat isyu ang pagsasabi ng totoo. Heto na naman tayo, panay palusot na lang ang naririnig natin sa mga manok ng administrasyon," Diokno said.
Diokno also said that he still has faith that the Filipinos will be rooting for candidates who are smart and honest.
“Malakas pa rin ang pananampalataya ko na matino at matapat na kandidato ang gusto ng Pilipino. Naniniwala pa rin ako na ang hinahanap nilang mga pinuno ay 'yung nagsasabi ng totoo," he said.
“Sabi nga nila, ang taong nagsisinungaling sa maliit na bagay, lalong hindi mapagkakatiwalaan sa mas malaki at mas importanteng mga bagay," Diokno added.
In a previous report by KAMI, Duterte-Carpio said that there is no candidate in the upcoming elections who did not lie. Therefore, honesty should not be an issue this election period.
“Walang isang kandidato diyan na hindi nagsisinungaling kaya hindi dapat nagiging issue ang honesty ngayon,” Duterte-Carpio said.
