With a total of 33 candidates are vying for 12 Senate seats in the May 13 polls who will you vote?

ABSCBN staged a way for the common Juan Dela Cruz to meet and have an idea of who these candidates are and what they promise to do when elected.  Harapan 2013 the senatorial debate was help at La Consolacion College in Manila last April 21 and 28.

I watched both debates online through iWantTV and I must say,  it really does make a difference when you get to hear them answer controversial questions that the country is facing right now.  Who answered best?  I scored each candidate a point whenever they answer a question that sounds good to me.  I was not really surprised when I saw that most of the TRAPOs (Traditional Politicians) got the lowest scores.  I might just use this as a guide come election day but it can still change.  Again this is just based on my personal opinion so please don’t get mad if your bet is not on my list.

The 6 Team PNoy candidates who were no-shows in the debates are:

Senators Loren Legarda, Alan Cayetano, Francis Escudero and Antonio Trillanes IV; Cynthia Villar and Jamby Madrigal.


The 6 UNA bets who shunned the debates are Nancy Binay, Margarita “Tingting” Cojuangco, Jack Enrile, JV Ejercito, Senator Gregorio Honasan, and Juan Miguel Zubiri.


Those who didn’t show up automatically got a 0 for me.  Well I already know who they are anyway… seen them in previous debates and mostly TRAPOs so it doesn’t really matter.
