“Right now they are even in our cyberspace. They are in our online newspapers making all sorts of comments,” Carpio said.
He also took notice that “they could also contribute funds to their candidate of choice.”
And because of this concern the retired magistrate has called on all Filipinos to be cautious on who to vote for in the 2022 elections.

“What we can do now as citizens is to educate ourselves and to prepare for 2022 when we elect a new president,” Carpio also advised.
“We must make sure that the new president will defend faithfully, sincerely our sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea,” he added.

Carpio makes Duterte as an example

The retired SC justice reminded President Duterte who made the promise during the 2016 elections that he will defend the country’s territorial integrity against China.

“When he gets elected, he makes a 180-degree turnaround,” he said.
“We have to scrutinize every candidate for what they say during the campaign and also during the past whether they are consistent,” Carpio stressed.
