Manila, Philippines – Iginiit na ‘red flag’ para sa mga botante ang hindi pagdalo sa mga pre-election forums.

Sinabi ni Commission on Elections spokesman James Jimenez na labas sila kung sumipot man ang kandidato o hindi.

 “It could be a red flag for the voters. Absolutely, not for the Comelec. Comelec does not care either way if they come or not.”

 “Ultimately, what Comelec cares about is whether or not the public will have an opportunity to interrogate the candidate, so to speak, to interrogate their positions, to interrogate their beliefs and so on,” dagdag pa ni Jimenez.

“Whether or not they come to the debate does not matter to Comelec it matters to the people. And I think it’s very important in recognition of how important it is with the people, that we acknowledge that they fail to show up.”

“It’s not going to be glossed over, it’s not going to be ignored, there’s gonna have a podium right there, with their name on it and no face above it,” lahad pa ng opisyal.

Magsisimula naman ang pagsasagawa ng Comelec ng debate sa huling linggo ng Pebrero. RNT/FGDC
