Inday Sara on opposition’s debate dare: ‘Kami nalang, 1 vs 8




Presidential first daughter and current Davao city Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio is willing to have it 1 vs. 8.

Also current campaign manager of Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) dares the opposition’s Otso Diretso team to a public debate.

“Kami na lang, Inday Sara vs 8,” the presidential daughter told INQUIRER.net.

The challenge came after the Commission on elections (COMELEC) rejected the request of Otso Direto’s appeal for a COMELEC sponsored debate.

The opposition senatorial bets have been very much adamant in challenging the administration bets saying, “would benefit the voting public, who has all the right to know the platforms and positions on various issues” of Otso Diretso and Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP).

 
No senatorial debate- COMELEC

There will be no debate between hungpong ng Pagbabago and the Otso Diretso senatorial candidates, the COMELEC said.

“The Commission en banc has deliberated on the request and the request will be denied,” Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said in a prepared statement.

Jimenez said that COMELEC cannot hold such n activity for the sake of only two parties.

“Granting Otso Diretso’s request would be tantamount to giving preferential treatment to some senatorial candidates or slates,” Jimenez added.

There is a difficulty to conduct a debate since there are 60 senatorial candidates.

“There are considerable time constraints, with only about two months remaining (before the mid-term polls),” he said.
