In partnership with around 50 student organizations from the biggest universities and colleges around Metro Manila, The Rundown is a senate elections forum that strives to inform and educate young Filipino voters about the senate elections candidates. It aims to provide a thorough analysis of each of the candidate’s plans, platforms and stand on pertinent issues affecting the country today.
Being a student-oriented forum, The Rundown 2013 provided an interactive platform where students voiced out their issues and concerns addressed to the senatorial candidates. Its primary goal is to help the youth, a strong and growing segment of the Filipino electorate, be well-equipped with the right information in order to have an educated choice in the coming 2013 elections.
