Last presidential debate today at Pangasinan U.
DAGUPAN CITY, Pangasinan—Lead organizers are all set for the last PiliPinas presidential debate to be held at University of Pangasinan here on Sunday.
In a press conference at Metro Plaza event center on Saturday, ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs head Ging Reyes promised that the debate would be more exciting and informative.
She said the last debate would be unique from the previous two because it would be in a town hall format where representatives from different sectors, featured in case studies from all island groups, would be able to ask questions to the presidential candidates.
“Lahat ng mga kandidato, sasagutin ang mga katanungan ng bawat isang case study. Makikita natin ang pagkakaiba-iba ng mga posisyon sa bawat isyu, ng kanilang policy proposal, at ng paano nila sasagutin ang mga problema at concern na kinakaharap ng mga taong ito,” Reyes said.
She added that there would be a face-off among the candidates, who had already chosen who they would be sparring with in the debate.
“Isang segment na maaaring makapukaw ng inyong interest ay ang face-off segment. Bukod sa makukumpara ang mga bawat sagot ng mga kandidato sa bawat isyu, makakapagtanong at makakapagbatbatan (sila) sa bawat isa.”
Reyes said the 180-minute debate program would have a total of 40 minutes of commercial breaks and an additional two minutes for a Commission on Elections infomercial.
