The five presidential hopefuls face-off live for PiliPinas Debates 2016 at GMA7 this Sunday afternoon, February 21. This is the first time it happened since the campaign period started earlier this month. Hoping we would see more of this kaya bilang Pilipino, huwag maging Bobatante.

Presidential candidates Vice President Jejomar Binay, Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Senator Grace Poe and former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas will discuss their track records, and plans to tackle poverty and development and peace and order.

Binay asked on real estate he owns – minana ba talaga?

Binay Said:


Yung iba doon nabili namin. May kakayanan naman kaming bumili.

Hindi totoo na ako ay maraming lupa. Ito ay either minana ko (sa nanay at tatay) o binili ko.

He also said he is also a lawyer, and his wife is a doctor

Round 1 Debate: Miriam Defensor Santiago faces Rodrigo Duterte

PiliPinas Debate 2016 round 1 - miriam defensor
Question for Miriam: Qualified medical leave for chronic fatigue syndrome, also cancer. 2014-2016, wala pang 10 times kayo nakadalo sa plenary. Ano ang inyong motibasyon sa gitna ng inyong karamdaman?

Miriam Said:


Walang consti provision na (if you’re sick) you’re not qualified.

Stage 4 of cancer. Naghihintay ako mamatay. Hindi ako pinatay ng guardian angel ko eh.

My only purpose is to serve out the rest of my life. I’m just 70.

Duterte Said:

You do not go into a debate with Miriam. I do not see her passing away in the next 20 years.

Round 1 Debate: Rodrigo Duterte faces Grace Poe

PiliPinas Debate 2016 round 1 - rodrigo duterte
Question for Duterte: Sa inyong Nov talumpati, 22 beses kayo nagmura. Naharap na rin kay sa reklamong acts of lasciviousness. Nakapatay na rin kayo ng kriminal. Dapat ba kayong tularan ng kabataan?

Duterte Said:


I will continue to kill criminals in performance of duty in accordance with law.

If I become pres it will be bloody. Wala akong kasong acts of lasciviousness. Meron lang akong inakbayan noon.

Womanizing is biology

Poe Said:

Duterte is irresistible sa mga babae. Pero alam ko na magalang siya sa nanay niya. Pero konting pigil

Sa mata ng bata ang mali ay nagiging tama.

Round 1 Debate: Grace Poe faces Mar Roxas

PiliPinas Debate 2016 round 1 - grace poe
Question for Poe:May napatunayan na ba kayo sa public service para maging pangulo?

Poe Said:


Ako nga ang may pinakamaikling karanasan… pero ako ay nakahawak ng exec position na may management (component)

On senate work: Pagkain para sa mga bata, para sa mga magsasaka, pagiimbistiga na walang kinikilingan

Mar Roxas acknowledges that he once invited Poe to become his running-mate.

Roxas Said:

Ang pagiging pangulo ay hindi OJT. (Kinabukasan ng) 100M Pilipino ang nakasalalay dito. May tamang panahon para sa lahat

Poe Said:

Tama, naka-3 admin na si (Mar) diyan, pero marami akong inimbistigahan tulad ng DILG, MRT

Round 1 Debate: Mar Roxas to Jejomar Binay

PiliPinas Debate 2016 round 1 - mar roxas on grace poe
Question for Roxas:Kapalpakan nangyari nung kayo ay DOTC, DILG head. MRT, poor disaster response.

Roxas Said:

In my time, more than 100 contracts worth 100 B ang napa-bid namin nang walang anumalya, controversy

Dotc mga kontrata napabid ng walang anomalya.MRT tinanggihan proposal dahil gusto pahabain 15yrs

Yolanda was the strongest storm in history. I was there before, during, after. Di ako nag-helicopter na parang turista tapos umalis. I wasn’t there just for photo ops.

Binay Said:

Grabe ang galit sa kanya (Mar Roxas) ng taga-Leyte dahil sa kapalpakan.
