BBM challenged by Robredo to a debate
LENI ROBREDO – The presidential aspirant challenged her rival candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to a debate.
Robredo and Marcos Jr. are among the top candidates in the presidential elections.
Aside from them, also rooting for the presidency is Senator Manny Pacquiao, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Senator Pink Lacson, Leody de Guzman and to name few.
Previously, the camp of BBM announced that the latter will not attend the final presidential debate organized by the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
Bongbong Marcos is the only presidential candidate absent during the first two debates of Comelec.
This prompted Robredo to challenge her rival, BBM to debate.
In a statement, Robredo said that BBM is the only candidate who’s yet to face the Filipino people at a debate.
According to her, attending such a debate is important so that the public would evaluate the candidates and hear their plans and platforms as well as compare their vision for the country.
“Inaanyayahan ko si Ginoong Bongbong Marcos na makipagdebate, para mabigyan ang taumbayan ng pagkakataong makaharap siya at matanong tungkol sa mga kontrobersiyang pumapalibot sa kanya,” she said.
Robredo said that if Marcos Jr. agreed, she will face him “anytime, anywhere.”
Apparently, she did not note whether it would be a one-on-one debate or the same set-up as the Comelec’s presidential debate.
The camp of BBM has yet to issue any statement with regards to the call of Robredo for a debate.
