Wow worst late debate ever

Philippines
March 20, 2016 6:21am CST
And Guess what? It's only because there's certain candidates wants to keep their notes on. The rules on the side of the media and comelec involve that never allow to have notes per debate. For the last one hour and half all we hear was commentary of the reporters, which pissed off a lot of viewers. the good thing is that they have a live stream in you-tube. I was able to get to watch not the very first scenes, but it was intense. This time I'm turning from undecided to choosing the candidate by choice. But the viewers were so angry with the long delay.

It was Binay who caused all the delay. He insisted he was told he could use notes. It only proves that he is bobo.

But I think luchi did explain her side in the end that there was a miscommunication with binay's PR and this led for a bit of argument for two hours

@Letranknight2015 yes luchi took responsibility. She really answered the camp of Binay that notes could be acceptable but the Comelec ruled otherwise. Now I don't understand what is Binay's problem with no notes. It was so obvious that he was so dependent on his staff and advisers.

The delay wasn't the fault of the network. It was clearly the fault of one aspiring candidate who can't go on without his notes. Clearly, he has a lot of explaining to do!

Hello It's been a heck of a while @allen0187 I think Luchi did explain that it was her fault too for not informing the candidates that Comelec didn't allow notes in this debate. there was a certain miscommunication there which is why it took two hours before the start of the debate.

I was a bit angry during the delay but then the moment the debate started I felt the intensity. Not like the firs one. The debate is really getting hot.

I had to leave out there and buy some groceries. But when check on a certain electronics shop, i realized that the debate has finally started. the heated debates started because of the VP delayed it. @LdeL0318

@Letranknight2015 I actually don't know if we may call it a debate or just a venue for accusations.

Hello @crossbones27 unfortunately, they need to keep talking to prevent the idle time and lost of viewers due to long wait. wish they just aired the pre debate so people would have been entertained later.

I hope they will be able to present their arguments well with legal and factual bases.
