QUEZON CITY — The College Editors Guild of the Philippines (CEGP), the oldest and the widest alliance of tertiary student publications in the country, announced that it is willing to host the debate between leading presidential bets Senators Manny Villar and Noynoy Aquino.
“The people, specifically the youth, are waiting for this face-off, waiting for the Top 2 presidentiables’ stands on issues that concern the youth,” said CEGP President Vijae Alquisola.
Alquisola said, “Education and employment, equality and empowerment, environment and national patrimony and an end to corruption and tyranny are just some of the points that should be tackled. Let us see who really has a better platform and position on these basic issues.”
The CEGP said that should any of the two presidential bets take up its offer to host, “Just contact us and we’ll be more than happy to arrange it.”
The CEGP has more than 700 member publications from tertiary schools and universities all over the country. # nordis.net
