Six possible presidential candidates in 2010 will face off for the second leg of Countdown to 2010: An ANC Leadership Forum this Friday (June 5), 7 pm at the University of the Philippines School of Economics in Diliman, Quezon City.
This will be aired live on ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel (SkyCable Channel 27) and again on Studio 23 on June 6 at 6pm and on ABS-CBN's Sunday's Best this June 7 at 10:15 PM.
The event's high-profile lineup includes former Philippine President Joseph Estrada, Senators Panfilo Lacson, Loren Legarda, and Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay. Vice President Noli de Castro and MMDA chair Bayani Fernando have yet to confirm their attendance. Sen. Manuel Villar has declined the invitation since he said he will be out of the country next week.
This second batch was unable to attend the first leadership forum that ANC and the Ateneo de Manila University sponsored last May 11. Sen. Francis Escudero, Sen. Richard Gordon, Sen. Manuel Roxas II, Gov. Ed Panlilio, and Sec. Gilberto Teodoro Jr. each took the hot seat in the first forum, where they responded to a barrage of questions on their stands, issues, and competence as public servants.
ANC's anchors Cheche Lazaro and Ricky Carandang will anchor the second forum.
The second ANC Leadership Forum is a partnership between ANC and the UPSE and part of ABS-CBN's "Boto Mo, iPatrol Mo: Ako ang Simula" campaign, which aims to empower Filipinos, particularly the youth, to make a difference in the national polls next year.
"Through the forums, we hope to help the Filipino youth see who these potential candidates are and what they stand for," said ANC Chief Operating Officer Glenda Gloria.
Catch the second leg of Countdown to 2010: An ANC Leadership Forum this Friday (June 5), 7 pm on the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) SkyCable Channel 27 and its primetime telecasts on Saturday (June 6) at 6 pm on Studio 23 and Sunday (June 7) at 10:15 pm on ABS-CBN Sunday's Best.
