Bumuhos sa social media ang pasasalamat sa human rights lawyer, Otso Diretso senatorial candidate, Jose Manuel “Chel” Diokno, na sa oras na ito ay nasa ika-21 sa bilangan.
Kagabi, nag top trending sa Twitter ang #SalamatChel–dala ang mga tweet ng pagkadismaya, pasasalamat at pag-asa umanong mailuklok sa posisyon ang tinaguriang “Woke Lolo” sa susunod na halalan.
I have prayed hardly for @ChelDiokno to win the Senatorial Election. Results are not his loss but the country’s.
He had a great vision for PH. One that we won’t see.
Pray and trust God.
We know not God’s plan for our country, but it sure is best.#SalamatChel #HalalanResults2019 pic.twitter.com/H1wbvivsBO

#SalamatChel you’ve inspired millions of young Filipinos that there is hope for a better Philippines where justice shall be served regardless of economic and social status. Huwag ka muna sumuko, ipaghihiganti ka namin sa 2022.

In the end it’s black and white. No political colors, no parties, no dynasties. It’s just us–Filipinos hoping for a lasting change.

May mga nagpahayag din ng patuloy na suporta sa adbokasiya ni Diokno.
Maybe 3 years without you in the government is a time for Filipinos to realize what they lost and forgot to give importance to. We don’t deserve a man as compassionate to service as you yet. Maybe after these 3 years we’ll finally learn to appreciate you. #SalamatChel pic.twitter.com/ikfmvOOPtV

“Nakikita ko ‘yong mga tweet. ‘Wag kayong mag-sorry. There’s no need to be sorry for anything. We did our best and we did well,” ani Diokno sa isang meeting kagabi, kung saan pinasalamatan niya ang kanyang mga staff at taga-suporta.
