The Commission on Election holds the “Comelec’s #PilipinasDebates2022: The Turning Point – The 2nd Presidential Debate” at the Sofitel Tent in Pasay City on Sunday with 35 days left before the May 9 election. 

Attended by 9 out of 10 presidential candidates, former senator Ferdinand Marcos, Jr skipped the second round of debates after reiterating that he is better off campaigning than joining debates.

Moderated by veteran journalist Ces Drilon, the 2nd presidential debate used a different format by posing a question on corruption for all candidates to answer, followed by questions on key social issues with candidates grouped into 3 during the succeeding segments.

Two remaining rounds of Comelec debates are scheduled on April 23, a town hall format for the second and last Vice Presidential debate and April 24, the third and last debate for presidential candidates.
