Second time’s the charm? #Diokno2022 trends as netizens can’t get enough of Chel


Otso Diretso senatorial candidate Chel Diokno may have lost the senatorial race, but he has earned netizens’ admiration for being the “woke lolo.”

A day after the elections, talk about a possible 2022 campaign for Diokno is already starting to gain ground on Twitter.

The hashtag #Diokno2022 trended on Twitter Philippines Tuesday, with several netizens urging him to run again.

Diokno appears to be open to the idea, telling his supporters at a gathering at “this fight will not end until we win.”

“Isipin natin kung everyday, may ma-woke tayong isa, at the end of one year, ilan na yung mawwoke natin; at the end of 2 years, doble pa,” he said.

“And at the end of three years, wala nang makakapigil sa ating ginagawa. I will promise you that I will never give up. This fight will not end until we win,” Diokno added.
