POLITIKO Administrator posted a topic in SenatorialSource: POLITIKO He was asked point blank by Enriquez if has the money to bankroll a senatorial campaign. Enriquez said the political reality was that human rights lawyers like Diokno do not get rich from their work and candidates need a lot of money to stand a chance of winning. But Diokno said people should shake off this belief that “money rules” in politics. “You cannot allow that to happen, dapat hindi natin tatanggapin ;yan. Dahil ang may ari ng mga puwesto na yan ay hindi naman sila ang may-ari ng mga puwesto na iyan ang taongbayan. Kaya nga tayo nagkakaroon ng halalan at kaya mahalaga ang boto dahil tayo ang nagluloklok kung sino ang uupo diyan. I cannot accept na sabihin lang natin ay dahil wala kang pera hindi ka mananalo,” said Diokno.
