Representatives from 3 political camps to attend online forum on poll campaign


Representatives from the camps of Vice President Leni Robredo, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, and Senator Grace Poe will discuss campaign dynamics and strategies in an online forum to be moderated by Pia Hontiveros of CNN Philippines on October 13.

“Kanya-kanyang Diskarte: Campaign Dynamics During the Pandemic,” will be the third webinar under the National Forum on Communication and Democracy: Philippine Elections 2022 series, organized by the Philippines Communication Society (PCS) in cooperation with the University of the Philippines’ Internet TV Network, TVUP.

Barry Gutierrez, spokesperson for Robredo, strategist Lito Banayo, and Jyleazer Dela Rosa, political affairs chief for Poe, will give the public a glimpse of their 2022 plans, just a few days after the end of the filing of certificates of candidacy.

Prof. Maria Ela Atienza of UP Political Science Department, Ateneo de Manila University School of Government Dean Ronald Mendoza, and Philippine Political Science Association President Dennis Coronacion, head of the UST political science department, are expected to talk about how the pandemic has changed the nature of campaigning and how candidates will adjust to the new terrain.
