Voter's education is at the heart of Ako ang Simula. That's why we mounted at least a dozen forums and debates in the past few months. This is public service.
The response we received from last week's Harapan was overwhelming. ABS-CBN set the stage. The questions and reactions - the content of the program - came from candidates and viewers. It is the most interactive debate we have ever had in this country.

We are disappointed key candidates decided they had better things to do than face our nation. It seemed they were driven by fear: afraid to appear together as their party’s president and vice-president; afraid to be immediately judged based on their actions and words.

In the end, we all lose.
