Retired General slams Pangilinan: Debate has gotten us nowhere

With the upcoming 2019 elections, candidates and parties have been on edge trying to prove their worth as a public official to the Filipino people.

Just recently the Otso Diretso candidates of the opposition challenged the Hugpong ng Pagbabago to a debate match in Plaza Miranda to discuss about issues that surround the country.

Debate is just for show

Retired General Abe Purugganann slams Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, for still pushing the debate to happen.



Pangilinan recently said that the Otso Diretso candidates are very prepared to sit down with the Hugpong ng Pagbabago members in order to talk about the rules of the debate.

This, of course, did not sit well with Purugganan, urging him to say that debate is just for show.

All lies

Purugganan says that more often than not, debates are allegedly used to tell lies and fool the public.

He said that the alternative that he wants is that these candidates lay down a 10 point platform of their goals if elected as senator.

He adds that they have been debating for years but have not been able to develop the country. More than that, he says that they have lied to the people.

Also for some reason, Purugganan says that former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino’s track record is enough for the people to decide who to vote for.

Ending his post, Purugganan calls for the opposition to apologize instead to the people that they have hurt. He then gave examples of the SAF44, family of late Chief Justice Renato Corona, victims of illegal drugs, and others.

"Huwag ng debate, Kiko. Walang saysay yan. Puro lang yan porma. Bubuhusan niyo lang ng kasinungalingan at panlilinlang ang taong bayan. Mabuti pa maglatag kayo ng sampung (10) programa at ilathala niyo para makilatis ng buong bansa ang gusto niyong gawin.

Hindi pa ba kayong napagod sa puro debate? Tatlong taon na kayong puro debate at wala naman napala ang taong bayan sa inyo, puro lang kasinungalingan at panlilinlang. Nabibisto lang ang kapalpakan ng liberal. Yong track record ng Aquino adminstration is enough for the people to decide not to vote for your canditates.

Kung gusto niyo, hingi na lang kayo ng tawad sa taong bayan lalo na sa mga pamilya ng mga pinatay niyo, napinsala niyo, at naperhuwesiyo niyo. Unahin niyo yong pamilya ni Justice Corona, ng mga SAF, ng mga biktima ng Dengvaxia, ng mga milyong milyon na biktima ng iligal na droga, at isauli niyo yong mga kinulimbat ng partido niyo at mga cronies niyo, at baka sakaling magbago ang isip ng taong bayan."
