Inanunsyo ni Human Rights Lawyer Chel Diokno na tatakbo ito sa susunod na halalan.
Subalit hindi nito tinukoy ang posisyon na kanyang tatakbuhan.
Nilinaw ni Diokno na wala siyang balak tatakbo sa mataas na posisyon sa gobyerno.
Si Diokno ay miyembro ng opposition coalition na 1Sambayan na nominado para tumakbong presidente o bise presidente.
Ayon sa kanyang Facebook post ,” Yes, to be clear: I will run in 2022. It’s difficult now to make a final decision about what position, and I never aspired for President or VP, which 1Sambayan has nominated me for. But I think it’s important that ordinary Filipinos and the youth have a voice.”
“Our justice system is not gonna get fixed unless people in power see the problem and do something about it. I’ve been a lawyer for three decades, everyday I work on my Free Legal Helpdesk, and I’ve seen it firsthand. I know how we should fix our justice system.”
