TV5 Hosts "PILIPinas" Presidential Debates 2016 on March 20

Thursday, March 10, 2016

It's TV5's turn with Moderator Luchi Cruz-Valdes (Center), and her panelists Lourd de Veyra, Atty. Ruhpil Bañoc, Atty. Tony Abad, Ana Marie Pamintuan, Marichu Villanueva and Erwin Tulfo.

In my opinion, the last presidential debate wasn't really effective. Although they tried to pit the candidates against each others platforms, most of the time, they just agreed or praised each other which I think was a little self serving. This is just an opinion, and I think that's important to at least have an opinion, if that makes sense. This time, it's TV5 that's hosting the Cebu Presidential debates. It's going to happen this Sunday, and as I said during the last time this happened, you should drop anything that you're doing and focus on the debates because if you're seriously looking for answers to your questions on who to vote for this coming elections, you should definitely watch this.

I am looking forward to a better exchange of facts and opinions because TV5 is doing this with a stellar team. You'll get the intelligent questions from Luchi Cruz Valdez (while she's moderating at that), plus some smart panel discussions with Lourd de Veyra, Atty. Ruhpil Banoc, Atty. Tony Abad, Ana Marie Pamintuan, Marichu Villanueva and tough guy Erwin Tulfo. I am expecting sparks to fly, knives to stick to the candidates back, so I could see who wouldn't be just sitting down and taking all of it. TV5 is also announcing that this is part of their "Bilang Pilipino 2016" program. V5 President and CEO Emmanuel C. Lorenzana says "The March 20 debate is the centerpiece in our Bilang Pilipino program where we aim to provide Filipino voters and the general public the most extensive and in-depth coverage of the 2016 national elections." They will also harness the resources of PLDT, Smart, Cignal, Philippine Star, BusinessWorld, RadyoSingko, and Bloomberg TV Philippines to bring the information in your homes, your smart phones, wherever you are during the event.

This will be held at the Performing Arts Hall at the University Philippines campus in Cebu City so if you can't go there directly, watch it LIVE on the happiest network in the country, TV5!
