IGLESIA NI CRISTO HOLDS PROTEST RALLY VS DELIMA

On the day Justice Secretary Leila de Lima announced her senatorial bid in 2016, members of the politically influential Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) slammed the justice chief in a rally in front of her agency.

To the tune of the famous song, “Why, Why, Why, Delilah,” INC members chanted during their protest, “Why, why, why, De Lima?”

When asked if they would vote De Lima for senator, the INC members answered, “Hindi!” (No!)

INC members vote as a bloc, and politicians court INC leaders to win any election. (READ: INC: From rag-tag sect to influential wheeler dealer?)

Up to 1.37 million of around 52 million Filipino voters, or 2.6% of the voting population, belong to the INC.
