2010 Elections

On April 2010 Ang Kapatiran (AKP) president Eric Manalang, filed a petition before the Commission on Elections against ABS-CBN for violating the Fair Elections Act of 2001 when the network allegedly excluded Chipeco from a vice-presidential debate they had organized. ABS-CBN senior vice president for news and current affairs Maria Ressa later wrote a letter of apology to AKP.

According to Chipeco, a candidate does not need endorsers if he had a platform of governance in which the people will base their votes. He also said that his and JC de los Reyes's edge over the others are that they are not “trapo” or traditional politicians.

Chipeco added that the Office of the Ombudsman was put up to deal with corruption. He pointed that at present it was the Senate that was conducting investigations, and parties found liable were not being jailed.

Chipeco and his presidential running-mate JC de los Reyes, said that if elected, they will implement the anti-dynasty provisions in the 1987 Constitution.

In an interview with GMA7, when asked about his low ratings in surveys, Chipeco said that ratings results are not the sole basis of a candidate's success or failure. Poll surveys create a bandwagon effect, he said.

When asked by Jejomar Binay if he will prosecute Gloria Macapagal Arroyo if he is elected vice-president, Chipeco said that he is unsure if he has the power to prosecute Arroyo. However, if the evidence is strong enough, the case should be pursued, following the justice process.

He is in 8th place based on COMELEC, PPCRV and the official canvassing of the Congress.
