According to Dela Rosa, Otso Diretso can organize a debate between themselves if they really wanted to show their intellect to the people.
In a past interview, Dela Rosa already said that they’re busy in communicating with the voters nationwide, so they don’t have time to debate with Otso Diretso.
Bato also criticized Otso Diretso before for trying to imitate ‘Oplan Tokhang’ in their style of campaigning by knocking the doors of the voters.
“Akala ko ayaw ninyo ng oplan tokhang yun pala ay gagayahin rin ninyo.”Dela Rosa said in his Facebook post.
Otso Diretso has been criticized by the pro-government senatorial bets for insisting for debate despite having lack of time.
Meanwhile, Comelec junked the request of Otso Diretso for a debate, saying that they’re already lack of time and resources to accommodate 60+ senatorial candidates.
However, they said that they’re willing to help media companies if they wanted to set a debate.
