CAVITE, Philippines (UPDATED) – With the winners’ circle in preelection surveys still far from their grasp, several Otso Diretso senatorial candidates said they need to work harder on the campaign trail.
“Doble lang ang kayod (We just have to work twice as hard),” human rights lawyer Chel Diokno said when asked by reporters on Tuesday, March 19, what needs to be changed in their strategy to pull up their survey numbers.
“Ako'y very upbeat and optimistic sa mga nagiging resulta ng survey. At sa akin naman eh it's really secondary to getting known on the ground. Pagdating ng pag-iikot naman namin sa ibaba eh talagang maganda ang reception,” said Diokno.
