2nd Pilipinas Debates video replay (March 20, 2016)

The 2nd Pilipinas Debates for presidential candidates happened on Sunday, March 20, 2016. Here's a video replay of the event aired on TV5.

Four aspirants for the highest seat in the land answered from panelists, journalists, and themselves questions regarding important issues in the country.

Present were Vice President Jejomar Binay, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Senator Grace Poe and former DILG Secretary Mar Roxas. Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago skipped due to health reasons.

The second Pilipinas Debates 2016 was delayed for an hour and a half not because TV5 was not prepared nor there was a technical problem as it was broadcast live from the University of the Philippines’ Cebu campus, but because certain camps had a last-minute argument over debate rules.

Binay was not allowed to bring notes on his roastroom by the Commission on Elections, which organized the 2nd Pilipinas Debates with TV5 and The Philippine Star.

According to some observers, Poe won the second round of the debates. However, it was Duterte who captured the hearts of netizens.
