PILI, Camarines Sur – Senatorial candidate Imee Marcos said Thursday she prefers campaigning across the country than participating in debates.

Debates are time consuming, according to the daughter of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. 

“Wala namang problema magkaroon ng debate. No issues, no problem with that. Kaya lang 'yun nga, napaka-busy rin namin sa kaka-ikot," she told reporters.

"Minsan hindi talaga makabalik sa Maynila, hindi natitiyempuhan dahil napakaraming kandidato eh. Parang mas maigi pa umikot na lamang dahil napakahaba din ng mga debate," the Ilocos Norte governor added.

Marcos was in Camarines Sur Thursday afternoon to attend the inauguration of technology management and demonstration center of the Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PHilMech) in the Bicol Region.

Her fellow Nacionalista Party member, re-electionist Senator Cynthia Villar, was the guest speaker of the event.
