Other presidential candidates interviewed include Senator Panfilo Lacson, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Senator Manny Pacquiao, and Vice President Leni Robredo.

The former senator declined to participate in the KBP forum, citing conflict in his schedule.
Lacson, Moreno, Pacquiao, Robredo, and Leody De Guzman graced the KBP forum.
