"Please don’t be the sway vote. Alam namin you’re close to the President. Kunsidera niyo ang konsensya,” she said.

Her remark came after the Catholic charismatic group El Shaddai did not endorse all Otso Diretso candidates.

Out of 8 opposition Senatorial hopefuls, only reelectionist Sen. Bam Aquino got the backing of El Shaddai.

Among the candidates it endorsed were Aquino, Cynthia Villar, Bong Go, Ronald Dela Rosa, Grace Poe, Imee Marcos, Nancy Binay, Koko Pimentel, Francis Tolentino, Sonny Angara, Bong Revilla, Jinggoy Estrada, JV Ejercito, Bam Aquino and Willie Ong. 

INC, an influential sect known for bloc voting, endorsed Duterte during the 2016 elections. 

Meanwhile, running priest Fr Robert Reyes called on voters to choose candidates based on conscience instead of endorsements. 

Tingnan ang laman ng isip, ng puso; huwag ang bulsa. Dami kandidato, they're empty and bankrupt. We have free will. Mula ngayon hanggang sa susunod na Lunes, magdasal, luhuran natin," he said.
