Campaign Trail: Where the candidates are, March 14-20

MANILA, Philippines (3rd UPDATE) – This was the week after the Supreme Court (SC) decided to allow presidential candidate Grace Poe to run, reversing the ruling of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to cancel her certificate of candidacy over citizenship and residency issues.

The SC ruling was expected to consolidate the support base not only of Poe but her running mate Francis Escudero. Expectedly, too, their rivals campaigned even harder to catch up with the two front runners in a race that various surveys showed remains tight.

Toward the end of the week, all roads led to Cebu for the second presidential debate organized by the Comelec.

Here are the presidential and vice presidential candidates' schedules for the week of March 14 to 20:


Monday, March 14


Tuesday, March 15


Wednesday, March 16


Thursday, March 17


Friday, March 18


Saturday, March 19


Sunday, March 20
