When it comes to choosing the presidential candidate that they will be rooting for this coming election, couple Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia shared that they still want to give themselves time to think it over and to know the candidates more.
“Ako po matagal ko na pong pinag-iisipan ‘yan. There are only candidates who are only surfacing now like si senator Miriam Defensor, she just announced that she is running so ngayon I feel like there’s sufficient time for all of us to think about it first, to review,” Coleen said.
The host-actress said that she is also hoping to know the presidential candidates and their vision for the country better before making a decision about who she is going to vote this coming election. “Hindi pa naman sila masyado nagsasalita tungkol sa mga pangako nila sa bansa so I believe in taking the time to really take everything in and not just base everything off, you know. Alam pa lang natin ay ‘yung pangalan nila, I believe in absorbing everything before coming into conclusion on who we’re going to vote so sa akin wala pa po.”
Billy said that he is hoping that the Filipinos will make the right choice this election. “I’m half-American, half Filipino. I’m not yet a voter here so ‘yung sa akin naman po meron naman po akong choices pero medyo masakit lang ang ulo namin dahil sobrang daming trabaho, [pero] may iba naman na pina-priortize nila dahil it’s so crucial for the Philippines din to choose the president so we really need to make the right choice,” he said.
Other It’s Showtime hosts like Vice Ganda and Karylle are still undecided on who are they going to vote. ”Ngayon hind pa po ako makakapag-decide pero sigurado po ako na makakaboto po ako,” the unkabogable star said.
Karylle said that she wants to know and listen to what these candidates have to offer before making a decision. “Actually this year with all the problems surfacing I’m just hoping that we have more presidential debate like siyempre ngayon sa America left and right they are posting all the videos of the debates so sana mas don tayo kaysa mga commercial banners which is bad for the earth and expensive. It will really be nice to hear them out and really able to ask them question so for me that is what I’m hoping for this year,” Karylle stated.
