MANILA, Philippines – The first presidential debate organized by the Commission on Elections is set on Saturday, March 19, at the Sofitel Tent in Pasay City.

For the vice-presidential face-off, seven out of nine aspirants have submitted written commitment forms. House Deputy Speaker Lito Atienza has formally declined to participate due to medical reasons. The vice-presidential debate will happen on Sunday, March 20, at the same venue.
