Philippine celebrities have voiced out their reactions to the last presidential debate using their Twitter accounts.
The Pilipinas Debates 2016 has come to its last part on April 24, Sunday at the PHINMA University of Pangasinan in Dagupan City. The last presidential debate was organized by ABS-CBN with Karen Davila and Tony Velasquez as the hosts of the event.
The debate started on time and all of the presidential candidates where present including Jejomar Binay, Rodrigo Duterte, Grace Poe, Mar Roxas, and Miriam Defensor Santiago.
Netizens and celebrities alike have expressed their expectations for the last Pilipinas Debates 2016. Many were unimpressed with how the presidential bets handled themselves and how they chose to mudsling rather than answer what was being asked. This time, however, all eyes are on these presidential candidates to finally speak out on their platforms and hopefully answer all the questions being thrown at them.
Stars have commended ABS-CBN for using a town hall format. Jim Paredes applauded the format because it turned out to be a “nice debate” with minimal mudslinging unlike the previous debate.
Some stars like Anne Curtis, Bianca Gonzales, and Vice Ganda have commented on the issues discussed during the debate including Transportation and Education.
Celebrities have also expressed their frustrations on the candidates. They took their comments on the candidates to Twitter.
Despite all these criticisms, some stars have remained unfazed. Marielle Rodriguez-Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, and Lovi Poe have all expressed their unwavering support for their chosen candidates.
These celebrities are taking things really serious while artists like Aiza Seguerra, Regine Velasquez, and Ethel Booba chose to have fun and make jokes about the debates. Aiza Seguerra commented on Binay’s frequent walking while Regine Velasquez declared that she’s choosing a different presidential candidate on May 9. Ethel Booba, on the other hand, believes that a real issue should be tackled.
We may all have different opinions and stances on choosing our next president, but Vice Ganda reminds us of what is of utmost importance.
