Filipinos motivated to vote in the 2022 elections after Joe Biden victory

Filipinos are fired up and inspired to vote after seeing Biden’s win over Trump in the US presidential elections.

  • They compared Trump’s administration to Duterte’s.
  • Netizens then trended ‘tayo naman’ and urged people to register and vote for the 2022 presidential elections. 

The recent victory of Joe Biden in the 2020 US presidential elections have motivated Filipino netizens to campaign and push for more voter registrations for the Philippines’ 2022 elections.

After being inspired by the results of the elections that overturned the four-year presidential term of Donald Trump, Twitter users managed to trend #Halalan2022 and urge citizens to vote and have the will to change the current state of the national government.

The hashtag had more than 10,000 tweets as netizens stressed that Filipinos should learn from Biden’s victory over Trump as it’s not impossible for things to change and every vote counts.

As Trump claimed that the elections had a massive voter fraud and even campaigned for the launching legal challenges among several states, Filipinos noticed the similarity of his reaction to Senator Bongbong Marcos’ reaction when he lost the 2016 vice-presidential elections.

Along with #Halalan2022, the phrase “tayo naman” also trended with Filipinos hoping to learn from what happened in the US.

Vice President Leni Robredo’s daughter Aika Robredo also joined the movement.

“Trump is out. Duterte when?” Kerwin King wrote.

Another netizen saw Biden’s victory as a “glimmer of hope” for the Philippines.

Dr. Gia Sison then shared information on how and when Filipinos can register for the upcoming elections.

Reporter MJ Felipe was also seen tweeting the phrase.

“Philippines, it’s our time in 2022. Let’s prove that surveys are not always accurate.”

Another lesson that a netizen realized that character and decency must go together, along with the importance of every vote. She then asked the Philippines if the country is ready for the same thing to happen.

“Donald Trump is the embodiment of the current state of Philippine politics,” another netizen said.

“Pilipinas we can make things better in #Halalan2022. We really need to bring decency and statesmanship back in government. It’s up to all of us to get the government we deserve.”

Voter registration ends on September 30, 2021.
