The PPCRV-Zamboanga City chapter said the forum is aimed to inform the public about the presidential candidates' visions, platform of government, and stand on vital issues affecting Mindanao.

The PPCRV said there will be a set of panel of interviewers who will field questions to the candidates related to issues concerning peace and conflict transformation, environmental sustainability, economic sustainability, social services, and good governance.

All the questions will be framed around the Mindanao experience and context, the PPCRV said.

The audience who will represent different sectors in Western Mindanao will also be given the opportunity to field questions to the presidential candidates, the PPCRV said. (Bong Garcia)
