However, the latter did not show up in the event. Opposition bet Erin Tañada said that Sarah Duterte should rightfully be embarrassed about this.

It was just recently that the Otso Diretso candidates challenged the Hugpong ng Pagbabago members to a debate. 

They were supposed to debate about crucial and important issues in the country, something the Filipino people should highly be aware of.

Because of the absence, Tañada has commented that the Hugpong ng Pagbabago members have greatly embarrassed Sarah Duterte.

That’s for their side to answer. They’re putting Sara Duterte in an embarrassing position,” Tañada said when asked to comment on Hugpong’s no-show at the event.

After the incident, some news have some out, particularly that of Imee Marcos saying that she prefers campaigning over debating. Many people have took offense of this as debating is a core action needed of a senator in coming up with laws for the land.

Out of the eight Otso Diretso candidates, five were able to show up at Plaza Miranda, namely Gary Alejano, Chel Diokno, Pilo Hilbay, Romulo Macalintal, and Erin Tañada.
