Kris Aquino has become the latest “chelebrity” to throw her support behind the senatorial bid of Otso Diretso candidate Chel Diokno.
In an Instagram post Sunday (May 5), Aquino shared a photo of herself wearing a pink shirt with Diokno’s image.
She said she had the shirt bought in Divisoria and printed with Diokno’s photo at Fisher Mall.
Aquino said Diokno impressed her with his statement that there isn’t much discussion about the justice system despite people’s common desire to end corruption and criminality.
“Long shot siya but just because a man isn’t in the ‘sure win category,’ it doesn’t mean na hindi na ako pwedeng mabilib sa kanya,” she said.
Diokno has yet to break into the so-called “Magic 12” list of candidates with a statistical chance of winning, based on surveys conducted by Social Weather Stations and Pulse Asia.

Humanga ako kay senate candidate #25 Chel Diokno because i agree sa SENSE ng STATEMENT nya: We all want to put a stop to corruption. We want criminality to stop. But we don’t talk enough about the 🇵🇭 justice system. i only have 1 minor point to raise, when he singled out politicians about not wanting a long discussion about the justice system, from firsthand experience, kahit hindi po pulitiko gustong takasan ang matinong talakayan tungkol sa pagsunod sa batas at sa pagharap sa mga kaso… everyone who committed a crime, not just high profile politicians or organized crime bosses, must be held accountable. KAPAG NAKASUHAN KA DAHIL NILABAG MO ANG BATAS, HARAPIN MO ang prosecutor, at DEPENSAHAN MO ANG IYONG SARILI. We are after all presumed innocent until proven guilty. BUT we must face the charges filed against us at the prosecutorial level- may sistema tayo na dapat sundin. It’s called the RULE OF LAW. Flying home from my 🇸🇬 checkup. (YES- super happy, we got assigned the @flypal A321 NEO, among their small planes, it’s my FAVORITE, this isn’t a sponsored post, i paid for our tickets BUT had to give you this travel tip: try to book flights on the A321 NEO when you can, bongga sya, promise, may wifi pa) #25 is the 2nd national candidate who gets a post of me wearing my bought from Divisoria, printed in Fisher Mall, size 12 from the girls’ section pink shirt. Long Shot sya but just because a man isn’t in the “sure win” category, it doesn’t mean hindi na ko pwedeng mabilib sa kanya. 🇵🇭
