Vice presidential debate
IYO ANTOY - Antolin dela Cerna (Banat) - April 15, 2016 - 10:00am

Sa iyang column sa Manila Bulletin, si Dr. Florangel Rosario Braid, miisip sa miaging debate sa mga pilionon pagka-bise presidente, pinasikad sa pipila ka political analyst, nga “most entertaining and informative election debate as yet.”

Sa ato pa, ang maong debate maoy labing nakalingaw ug labing nakahatag og mas daghan nga kasayoran, sa mga debate sa election, so far. Buot ipasabot nga mas duna kita’y napupo nga mga kasayoran itandi sa duha ka nag-unang presidential debate.

Hinungdan nga sa iya usab nga column, si Leandro DD Coronel, misugyot nga ang katawhan mo-petition sa Comelec nga ang mga pagka-bise presidente maoy himoon nga mga kandidato pagka-presidente, ug ang mga pilionon pagka-presidente, himoon nga kandidato pagka-bise presidente. Mag-ilis sila’g lugar.

Kataw-anan. Apan, pinasikad sa mga debate nga atong nasaksihan, mao ra og mas qualified ang mga pilionon pagka-bise presidente kay sa mga presidential contenders. Wa pay klaro nga issue sa corruption ug incompetence.

 Mipadayon si Braid: “In fact some say it was much more riveting than the Pacquiao-Bradley match which happened several hours earlier. It kept a large audience captivated and entertained. It had more quotable quotes.”

Ania ang pag-describe ni Coronel sa debate; ”Sen. Allan Cayetano, as usual, was articulate who always does his homework, full of statistics and information at his command. “Sen. Trillanes too, did well; he didn’t waste words in getting his points across.

“Sen. Gringo Honasan has been a disappointment to me. For a rebel soldier, his Senate career has been characterized by consistent conformity with the establishment.

“Sen. Bongbong Marcos appeared to have inherited some of his father’s oratory skills.  But the bottom line on the 58-year-old Bongbong is that it would be a tragedy for the entire nation to have another Marcos elected to a high national position.

“Sen. Francis Escudero. He always speaks like he’s delivering a speech. He sounds unnatural and insincere.”

Padayon ni Braid: “All the male candidates are senators with considerable experience as legislators. But it was neophyte LP’s Leni Robredo, first term representative, who emerged winner with 242 votes in a survey of 582 netizens, followed by Cayetano.”

Gidasonan kini ni Coronel: “Robredo stood up to the men with grace & intelligence. She ended with a closing winning style: ‘May the best woman win.’

So, there you are. Kun nakasaksi ka sa debate, sayud ka na, kinsa ang imong pilion pagka-bise presidente.
