Manila, Philippines - Otso Diretso senatorial bet Chel Diokno is confident that voters would choose honest and competent set of government leaders in the upcoming mid-term elections.

Diokno’s comment came after Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio said that honesty of candidates should not be an issue since "everyone lies anyway."



“Eto na naman, panay palusot ang naririnig natin sa mga manok ng administrasyon. Ma’am, ganyan na ba kaliit ang pagtingin nyo sa mga Pilipino? Wag natin insultuhin yung ating mga botante. Itaas natin ang pamantayan para sa mga gustong maglingkod sa bayan,” Diokno said in a tweet

“Malakas ang pananampalataya ko na matino at matapat na kandidato ang gusto ng Pilipino. Ang hinahanap nilang mga pinuno ay yung nagsasabi ng totoo. Sabi nila, ang taong nagsisinungaling sa maliit na bagay, lalong hindi mapagkakatiwalaan sa mas malaki at mas importanteng bagay,” he said.

Davao City mayor and Hugpong ng Pagbabago chair Sara Duterte on Wednesday blasted the “Otso Diretso” slate for allegedly spreading lies about the administration of her father, President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Ang dami-dami nilang sinasabi (They say so many things) about the administration of President Duterte which are untrue! So that also reflects on their honesty and credibility. So ano gagawin natin sa kanila? (What are we going to do with them),” Mayor Duterte said during a campaign sortie


“They deliberately say false statements on stage about the administration of President Duterte,” she stressed
