0 Technologians judge VP Aspirants in ABS-CBN's Harapan

Responding to ABS-CBN’s invitation to represent the local youth sector, seventeen Technologians took part in the ABS-CBN Harapan: The Vice-Presidential Debate last Sunday, March 21, at 10 PM.

The debate, held in Manila, was attended by six vice-presidential aspirants, namely, Sen. Loren Legarda, Sen. Mar Roxas, Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay, former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando, broadcaster Jay Sonza, and Atty. Perfecto Yasay, Jr. The CIT group was part of the 45-person live audience in Cebu, with Naga City and Davao City as other key simulcast points in the country.

Mark Anthony Razonable
, a BSECE-3 student, felt happy to join the event. He said, "It made me realize that now is the time to do something for the betterment of our beloved country." He was also privileged to express his sentiments and opinion through the wireless audience response system (WARS), a technology used during the event where members of the audience would press a button to indicate whether they agreed or disagreed with a candidate’s statement. Aside from the credibility and competence of the candidate, how the candidate responded to the questions and issues raised during the debate also became strong criteria on his assessment of the candidate.

CIT-SSG President Alan Angelo Llevares, who led the CIT participants, believes that the event further enlightened Technologians in identifying the most capable and worthy candidate. Their participation demonstrated Technologians' civic-mindedness and active concern with events seriously affecting the nation.

The invitation, sent through the CIT-SSG, was open to all Technologians. Also among the audience were students of University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJR) and University of the Philippines Visayas – Cebu College (UPVCC), local businessmen and persons with disabilities (PWDs).
