TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol — The debate was “boring” and had “confusing” questions.

This was how presidential candidate Senator Panfilo Lacson described the latest Commission on Election (Comelec) debate.


“Confusing kasi yung mga questions, in one question, parang tatlo yung dapat mong i-address. Napansin ko talaga confusing yung question because minsan tatlo yung inaaddress sa isang question,” Lacson told reporters here on Tuesday.

(The questions were confusing. In one question, it seemed like you needed to address three things. I noticed it was really confusing because sometimes you had to address three questions in one question.)


This, after he was asked about his earlier tweet, saying that the second round of the Comelec-organized presidential debate on Sunday, April 3 “wasn’t as exciting as most people who watched would have wanted.”

“Questions were not direct nor specific, even unclear sometimes. Translation: Boring,” Lacson’s tweet read.

Lacson suggested asking questions that are “simple and direct to the point.”

“Ang napansin ko kaya naging boring yung discussion because yun nga, everybody was confused na sagutin ang mga tanong,” he added.


(I noticed that the discussion became boring because like I said, everybody was confused in answering the questions.)

Earlier, the Comelec announced changes in the second round of its presidential debate, with bets grouped into three to debate on the same topic.

The group members changed for each segment. It was randomly pre-determined through draw lots prior to the debate. Candidates were given two minutes to answer with 30 seconds for rebuttal.

During Sunday’s debate, presidential candidates were asked about topics regarding political dynasties, turncoatism, and corruption in the Philippines, among others.
